Just recently redid the vossens from a machined silver/matte to an all graphite/gunmetal matte.

I noticed a slight loss of power/acceleration and my fuel Milage went from 9.7L/100km to 10.1L/100km instantly after being stuck at 9.7 forever. I get slight rubbing in the rear if I have my kids in the back and hit a large bump at hiway speeds but it’s pretty rare it has happened and I haven’t taken the time to investigate where it rubs its the driver side rear but what it rubs on I am not sure.

I no longer have a photo bucket account so i will try uploading on the forum. I got 20x9 255/45 and 20x10.5 275/40... I am in desperate need of lowering it now.

Why did you go for the former despite the latter being the perfect match for the stock 18" diameter?

Thanks! I was initially very apprehensive about the idea of 22ís. I knew that my options were either a smaller wheel and a suspension modification or a bigger wheel. I decided on the 22ís with a 265/35/22 tire. I must say the ride is very smooth. Yes I must now be a lot more vigilant about watching out for upcoming defects in the roadway ahead but the 265/35 tire really holds its own. Itís as quiet in city streets as it is the highway and feels a lot more stable around turns than the OEM 17 wheels it came with.

Have some 20" Volk VR.G2s I pulled from my GS450h before selling and looking for opinion on using them on the NX. They are staggered, (20x10+30R, 20x9+25F), but im wondering what the thoughts are if i ran 265s all around on them? Any opinion on these offsets and widths?

Did you do this yourself? I like that color and would be interested in possibly doing the same.
