The ride actually seemed a little better.

Wow. That looks pretty neat with the stock rims and spacers. How much closer do the front wheels get to the inner fender liner when you're making turns?

Also, do the Lexus center caps fit the Lumarai wheels by default? That's kind of nice in the design.

Not quite sure how much closer it puts the tire on full turn at the outer apex, but they're not rubbing. The front space rings are 15mm. Back 25mm.
Timmy0tool was rightin that 20mm for the back would have sufficed.I have a set of 20mm I ordered just in case I wanted to adjust my setup and still may.

Funny thing about the Lumarai Lexus photos. About 3 weeks ago it was for sale near St.Paul Minn. with 120k for $4500.00 detailed records and well cared for.
A good buy.I wrote just to ask about the wheels, real nice fella. It even had the Weathertech floor mats.In just a day or two it was gone and rightly so.
If i'm correct, those Lexus center caps are from a eye ess model. I know my moon wheel caps are too large. The wheels come with the Lumarai caps.

Did you choose type 1 (extended studs) or type 2 with the stock studs?

GoldLex99,

I used type 2 as this is what the ebay vendor had.

I wonder if type 1 were superior in design or strength?

one isn't superior than another just different in design.
I've seen drifters use type 2 spacers with no problems; you can imagine the forces exerted on the studs/spacers during a slide!
