Default Carlsson & Brabus on Lexus??

Hey guys!!! My friend can hook me up with Carlsson 2/5 20s for a very good price. I'll just need to drill the hubcentric. I know it is for MB only......But I think that wheel looks pretty good.....My friend also have Brabus on his GS400 and it very nice. Shall I go for it(Of course I'll have to fix my wrecked LS first)?

You have my blessing, I was looking at those rims for my ride a while back. I like the clean, basic styling and I'm sure the 20-inch version will compliment a big-bodied LS400 nicely.


shftup, that silver GS looks slick, they'll look great on your car! Carlsson on Lexus, way to stir up the pot!

Any wheel that you have to re-drill to get it to fit on your car, you shouldn't do. That ALONE should tell you something....

HOWEVER, Carlsson, in Japan ONLY, is hesitantly offering Japanese lug patterns...trust me, they're not all crazy about the idea...just doing it for the extra money...

With so many great JDM wheels, why would you bother doing Carlsson or Brabus on a Lexus?

Also, I don't support companies that don't support us. Why give them profits so they can do more Mercedes development? They don't give two *****s about you or your car and it absolutely discusts them when people do that (at least for Brabus...which is why Sprewell is no longer an authorized dealer)

Sure the wheels look good, but I wouldn't drill wheels to fit my car (I speak from experience). Get something that's a specific fitment for your car. You'll be happier in the long run.

Ken, I head Carlsson USA will custom fit their wheels for Lexus if you ask them but it'll cost more....I don't know if this is true but please keep us up to date if they will do that because I really want to buy a replacement wheel from them for the ones I bent. Or I have make another coffee table with 3 wheels.

those 2/5s are great looking wheels, they look good on my dad's car.

But my dad's car is a Mercedes so yeah......

I would look for some Japanese company with similar design that doesn't need to be re-drilled. Doesn't LECS or Zauber or something offer something like it?
