Unhappy Dronnel CA-05 discontinued???

I really like this rim it reminds of me of a bigger stock wheel which IMHO is the ideal look for the GS (and that lip is Buu-T-Full ) but when I inquire about it @ local custom and rim shops they look @ me like I'm speaking in gibberish when I searched for it on the net even the dronnel website doesn't have them on there. So someone let me know is the CA-05 off the market?


DGOT20s get in here!!!

yes i took this pic off of D's site sue me

Yeah Bmore they stopped distributing these wheels in the US about 1.5-2yrs ago. i actually got mine at a shop in NY that had one set left.

Sometimes they pop up on ebay, but if I were you I would get the silver ones and just have them chromed, you would have the only JDM Dronell with USDM chrome! LOL

*in best concerned father voice*

Alexus I'm sorry the rumors of the death of CA-O5 are true but as Toyota of North America as my witness you will have new shoes before the summer hits and I put my hand up to the HRE gods if it means that the apartment goes you will have some bling damn it!

*Thank you, Thank you, your too kind you can catch me in "When GS4's Attack" this memorial day coming to an interstate near you*

Default Dronell CA-05

I have chrome Dronell CA-05's on my 03 LS430. Been on there for a few years (got rid of those ugly stock wheels), and recently the knucklehead replacing a tire damaged one of my rims. I get on line to look for a replacement and read through all the forums that my rim has been discontinued. Plan "B" I guess is to see if I can get those gouges repaired
