Default Thinking of new wheels for Daily

So the ADR wheels that are on my SC400 daily are all beat to hell. I'm thinking about replacing with a pretty cheap set. I have ADR's that are staggered on car now at 18x8 and 18x9. Looking at Tire Rack and they have a set of Enkei Lusso in black with a machined lip (staggered) that I think might look good on it. What you guys think???

First pic is current ADR wheels.

Second pic is wheels I'm looking at

I think they will look pretty good on your car. The black adds a nice contrast to the silver car.

If wheel weight is important, you could look into the fairly light-weight Yoshihara Design D-12C wheel. They are pretty inexpensive and come in decent sizing.

Shane, I'd personally go with these wheels to be honest. Always loved them.

RPF1's are awesome -- great for performance, good for looks and price -- but they wouldn't be my first choice aesthetically on a SC. They're too thin & sparse of a spoke pattern for the bulk of the car, IMO.

I agree about black wheels being a winner on light colors like silver.

Those ADR wheels looks awesome. Do you have any details around the offset and tire sizes? I've the exact same color SC and am shopping for new wheels.

​​​​​​Thanks
