Default 19 inch 5 spoke wheels

My search is over! These beauties came in today. Gorgeous rim in person. This will be a HUGE refresh for my LS460. I will post pics with them on soon.

UPDATE: Here are before and after pictures. I LOVE how these look! It is the perfect size for me. The ride is a bit more firm, rides like my old GS350 with 17inch wheels but a little softer. It does not have that "pillow" ride anymore. I am riding on original shocks with 90K miles so I may recoup some if that back when I decide to change them later.
Handles better around corners and definitely more control on the highway at high speeds going around curves. I found a vendor on Ebay selling new sets of Goodyear Eagle Touring tires for $480 shipped (best offer) They have rim protector on the which I like and is a soft compound tire, quiet and comfortable on my 30 mile highway and street test drive. Also my highway wheel vibration is almost completely gone at all speeds. The wheels were road force balanced.
Had a little drama with the last wheel I was waiting for. It was a knock off without the Toyota stamp and the bolt pattern was wrong ! It was 5 x 114 which is for nearly all other Lexus models. They either refurbished the wheel with the wrong specs or there were 19 inch replica wheels with that bolt pattern at one point that is still circulating around. I have all oem wheels now. All my mods are pretty much all set !

Sweet! Welcome to the club! Will you post before and after pics? Are you waiting a while until you need new tires or making the transition immediately? Those rims make such a huge difference- cosmetically it's almost like getting a new car.

just fyi never buy used or replica wheels as they may have unseen damages and the replicas easily crack under stress

Thanks, waiting on a set of Toyota tpms to arrive and I am looking for a place that does road force balancing and can program the sensors. I'll probably end up at the Toyota dealership.
I probably would have gave in and got replica 19s if they made them. I believe they were available a while back. Oems in good shape for around $1000 shipped is hard to find Never had a problem with replicas from back in the day. I kept up coats of wax on them to prevent peeling and maintained the correct tire pressure.

I'll post pics soon!

Hi JLaws, the new wheels look awesome! I like how they show off the rotors and calipers. You should paint the calipers black with the L logo to make them pop!

BTW, I just looked at the pics on my desktop and noticed what looks like curb rash on the 5 spoke wheel. I thought you bought them new or refurbished. How much did you pay for the set?

Love these wheels! Where did you find them? I did some basic searching once and was having a hard time finding anything.

I'm hoping to move to a LS460 and hope I can get into a 2013+ but the only thing I don't really like about that year model is the wheels. I'm curious if anyone ever put these wheels on a 2013+ LS? I

Hi, No I did not say I got them new. I stated " Oems in good shape for around $1000 shipped is hard to find" I found a set of 3 with some minor curb rash which I grinded down, buffed and now looks much less noticeable. The tire rim protector hides the curb rash fix. The face are all near perfect near perfect., The last wheel I found was a full refurbish oem.

They are very hard to find if your budget is around $1000 max. If you want them bad enough then you are going to spend $350-$400 for each wheel. I don't think it will look as good on a 2013+. The 2007 -2012 has a sleek classic look and the 5 spoke wheels work.

Looks awesome. It's really amazing how much a simple change like that totally transforms the entire look & stance of the car. There are a decent amount of 4th Gen LS's in my city/town but I've only seen a couple of '07-'09 with those wheels (more common on '10-'12). Great decision!
