Default Who makes these Chrome Wheels?

Can someone help identify the manufacturer of these rims? I've searched for quite a while --- with no luck thus far. (Hopefully the images I attached will actually show up in this post...)

Not exactly sure who makes those specific wheels but I've seen a few owners with that style. I will note they are quite similar to the OEM TRD Chrome wheels.... hehehe which I have a set for sale... Just saying.

If I'm not mistaken, the center cap of the rim says Lorinser.

I've seen an SC430 with something similar. Problem is that many companies make this style... check out Lowenhart Felgen or Lowenhart LD1.

Thanks for the feedback...each listed company had similar models --- but none had that exact wheel.
If it helps any, the image was pulled from a Japanese website, but my searches there have not been successful.

...what kind of car is that in the original post? I think I've seen this wheel advertised somewhere, it looks very similar to the Lorinser LM1, which is discontinued..

it's an Sc430.

The LM1 looks similar, but that's not it. Thanks though...

Which manufacturer made the Blind Spot cam and how well does it work?

I used the I-max HD CCD camera (Amazon). Not sure why HD is in that part #, though.

It worked well in the daytime, but it too, got washed out by headlights at night, so I'm temporarily just using the CMOS BU cam (for both) right now, until I can get the BS cam installed inside a rear headrest, & behind some sort of polarizing filter, (mainly for improved aesthitics). The wart on the back deck, simply had to go!

You are the MAN! That's it. It looks better on the SC, IMO.
Thank you. I just sent them an email, so we shall see....
IOU.
