Question Newbie needs to know more about wheels...

OK guys, so I can't seem to find information on this on the net, so this is definitely the best place to turn for quick answers. I'm about to get into the mod game and am starting with L-Tuned aerokit and new wheels. It's the wheels where I have the question for you guys. I found a set of wheels that I love the look of, but what I dont know is if these wheels are crap or not. They are 20" Sendel S12's (http://www.sendelwheel.com). But I can't find anything -- good or bad about these wheels or the Sendel line. Anyone out there have any input? I'd like nice wheels but I dont want to spend for custom wheels or even wheels that are just dang expensive. I just want some nice wheels. Are these Sendels good wheels? Are there others that you'd suggest? Where the heck does one find information/reviews on wheels? Thanks for your help.

Default Nothing to say about Sendel's?

C'mon guys. I KNOW you have opinions about wheels. I've seen it! :-) Can anyone tell me anything about Sendel? I've done my obligatory search on this forum, but no one is saying anything good or bad about them. I just want to know if I'm buying junk or not.

Just from browsing their site, I am not impressed. They look to be more interested in the FWD vehicles and SUV's. The wheels are too thin and the offsets aren't right for a Lex. I don't like the fake 3 peice look either.

Edit - after checking a little further, they don't make an application for any Lexus models.

Default wow thanks!

Hey Vegas, thanks for that info. I didn't realize that they wouldn't fit my Lexus. The bolt pattern is there, but I didn't know about this offset thing. Guess I need to learn more about that before I go any further on a purchase. Interesting. Back to the drawing board.....
