pow

bam

thwap


as stated in the other thread, i bent one of my OG 17s and decided to replace and upgrade. i was holding out for the 3GS 18s ala chuckb but they are hard to come by, and when i did find a set, dude wanted $1400.00.! plus shipping!

i found a local set of these bad boys for half. theyre 19", forged, and transform the car for the better. car reacts to steering input faster, corners harder, rolls over bumps easier, and looks tougher. only negative is increased road noise on certain kinds of roads. [of course i know this is expected when upgrading from 17s to 19s.]

vic your car looks awesome in those pics. I think its the slam that does it. How flush do the wheels sit or do they tuck/stick out?? Im really considering those as my choice...

thanks guys. if im not mistaken the specs are 19x8 +30 and 19x8.5 +33. the front fits better than the rear. when i had the 17s, i had a 25mm spacer on the rear. i tried the wheel on the spacer and the wheel face was flush with the body. i might try a 5mm or 10mm spacer to push out the rear a little.

If you could post a picture from the rear so that we could see how flush it sits, that would be awesome. I'm curious to see the flushness of these wheels.

so your saying that on the 19's if you run the 25mm spacer it will sit flush? That will work cause I was thinking of running spacers in the mean time on my 17's. And +1 for rear shots

i was wondering when someone would ask that. car is sitting on H&R springs and yellow Bilsteins. in real life car has a 1 finger gap. i photochopped the drop. LAAAAAAME!

25mm + 19s will be FLUSH. if your lowered you will hit the fender unless you have fender mods.

if im correct, +33mm wheels + +25mm spacer = 8mm offset wheels!
25mm + 17s [50mm offset] = 25mm offset. i rocked that with absolutley no problems. NYC craters and all.

i'll snap some close up pics this weekend so you can see how far the fender is from the tire.

guys the wheels look nice on your cars.

not for me though, more of a purest at heart. i think if you are gonna go with a stock wheel then the lexus wheels are the way to go.....however, i do wish that lexus had better looking stocks.

just be sure and swap out those center caps.
