Default It's Been a Good Run - But it's time to part ways with my CV5s

So earlier this year I picked up a set of 20" Vossen CV5s for my IS350 (20x9 +38 up front, 20x10.5 +45 in the rear) and these wheels gave my car the exact look that I was going for: mean but still classy. I haven't had any issues with the wheels (my only complaint is they are heavy), build quality was fine, and my ride quality did not suffer much being on such thin tires.

Unfortunately I have decided to sell the wheels in order to get some more cash for paying for my first home, but I'll leave some photos of my car right here. In case you're wondering I'll be rolling on my factory wheels until I get well established in a home and eventually looking for a set of lighter weight wheels (Vossen Precision Series...maybe!? )

Looks nice. Your first home is a good step and while we hate to sell toys, the $ spent on RE is a good move.
