Can't go wrong with 5 spoke wheels. Are you dropping it as well? Does the Lexus Emblem fit in the center? Make sure the rotors aren't rusty. The rust will take a way from the appearance

Those look really good, and 21's are GOAT size for these cars. What's the offset on them? Gonna have to run spacers?

That looks good - can't wait to see actual pics. 5 star wheels make the LS look so much better IMO. I'm going to show my ignorance here about wheels though- what made you want to go with these instead of buying the 19" 5 star wheels from the 2007-2012 LS generation? They look pretty similar but obviously the size is different.

no from what Iíve learned I wonít need spacers at all. Since these wheels were on more than just the 7 series they make several of them. So I got them for a combo of vehicles, and they should fit without spacers.

ive got the data controller so I can drop it and will post up for sure dropped. Iím still trying to figure out the exact Lexus cap. Iíve see a couple that could work but I want to make sure I have the wheels first and match the silver...

I may be the first to think that these look better on the prior design LS (2007 style), but that may be just me.
Don't get me wrong, it doesn't look bad to me at all, just somehow I feel it looks even better on the older style LS

I tried on the 21" from the 7 series on my 2007 ls460 before and from what I can remember the front rub the clipper a little and dose required maybe a 5 mm spacer might work. Also need hub rings and new lugs nuts. Sorry I didn't take pics at the time. I just ended up returning the wheel because it was crack. Where did you get order the wheels from? I love the look of them and would want to make it fit with my 2015 update
