Default Red Centercaps...

When I had my Audi, red centercaps seemed to be a nice touch in that it added a splash of color. Seeing that I am a fan of my OEM F-Sport wheels, I wanted to see how the red would look for me so I photoshopped the first two images and liked what I saw so I ordered some raised decals and a spare set of knock off centercaps from China. They showed up today, so....pics below. If I had to do it again I'd probably order the 60mm decals to fill the circle more.

Honestly didn't notice much if at all in sport and normal mode. Sport plus is a tad rougher but that was also the case without the Tanabes

Ping that Etsy seller and see if she can make it happen.

I think I saw you are running Tanabe NF210 + H&R 10mm / 15mm spacers and 275/35 and 245/40 tires? Have any threads on this install and overall thoughts and experience with running a setup like this?
Lastly, why didn't you go with the "F" sport logo instead the of Lexus logo for your caps? I think the "F" would be a much cooler look than the traditional Lexus logo in my opinion.

Didnt find an F sport logo as an option...or didnt look too hard to be honest. I may order a 60mm setup though, so will look for them.

I have a RWD GS, which is why I kept the stagger.

Finally found the time to remove the wheels and get the centercaps on. Did some spring cleaning while I was in there also 😁

The ones I got we're 57mm but for the caps I would go 60mm. I may order another set. The first set of generic caps I ordered to test had a lip so I thought I needed to go 57. The second set I got that I ended up using had no lip so 60 would be perfect.

Wanted to order 60mm delals instead of the 57mm ones I got, and figured why go with the chrome and red when I dechromed the car, so I recreated the F-Sport logo and shared it with the seller on Etsy and she has now added these to the store. Should have them in a week or so. Ill post photos when installed.

Thanks for the update. Do you have a link for the actual caps? I tried searching based upon the images earlier in the post but am a bit confused as to what size to get. I assume whatever we get has to have the silver logo removed?
