Default 2004 LS430 UL - HRE's

I've been a bit of a lurker on here over the past year...

I bought this 04' UL last September. I'm an Audi guy, but this is one of the select few cars I've had that hasn't had four rings on it.

Only mods are the Data Systems controller and a set of HRE 20" wheels. Finally got around to getting some good pictures after a Pzero was on backorder for this thing for 2 months!

Look great. Amazing how low you can go with just the controller. Lots of 04 UL owners lately.

Nicely done, like the wheel fitment. Wheels pecs and tires?

The car looks very nice. It's rare to see HRE's on an LS.

This is pretty clean, nice how just the Data Systems controller and rims set the car off. Nice set-up, just right offset-wise to fill the fender wells. Good choice.

It is my car, and I am selling it. The 22k is just because I know I'll be low balled. I'd be happy with $18.5.

The LS is an awesome car, but I simply have too many. If anyone on here is interested please let me know...

Any pics of these wheels at stock height or just a slight drop?

what are the specs on your wheels and what did you have to do to your fenders/wheel wells to get that tuck and do you drive at that hight?

20x9 front and 20x11 rear, I can't remember offsets off the top of my head. Rear fenders are rolled and all the black plastic fender edge guards were removed. No pulling needed if you get the correct offset. I don't drive it this low. With the factory UL air suspension the quality is awful at this height. The DataSystems controller makes it very easy to raise and lower when parked

Thanks! I'm an Audi driver at heart, so HREs were a natural choice
