I want rims like this:


If anyone can find me a great condition set for a reasonable price in a JY and you live relatively close to me, please let me know.

Murg if you see these in that yard by you call me or PM or something.

This is what I want for my rims that I would use for the dragon or things like that. After I get these I'm going to do some minor autoX for practice

Why stock?

They look really nice on the car and would be better for dail driving.

Like, I like the Enkei's I have and would like to keep them but I have always wanted the 400 rims on a 300, because the 300 sits a little lower

04-22-2008, 08:13 PM
I guess what I should say is that the 400 wheels are half an inch wider (8" as opposed to the 300's 7.5") and have a more aggressive offset.

I'm heavily considering buying Jason's wheels and mounting my Toyo's on the car.

Because this is what it would look like:

That silver one looks like a Cavalier...

no lol.....but those rims cost a lot of money. The cheapest set that I liked was 800 rims alone.

Here's my breakdown:

20's look good if you have a ton of money and have slammed the hell out of your SC and have a body kit.

19's look good if you have a pretty much bone stock car with no or little lowering

18's are better all around for performance and daily driving.

but 17's also allow more tire, and with the weather around here in the winter, when I put my rims on in the spring there is still going to be a plethora of pot holes. I'll take my chances and stick with 17's. When its lowered they look large enough and there isn't a hugely noticeable difference between those and 18's (At least not to my eyes).

04-30-2008, 06:01 PM
anything above 17s on a Lexus will look terrible without some sort of lowering, your wheel gap will be huge. IMO spend yourself some money revamping your stock suspesion. Some Tein CS, or JIC Magics VIPs etc

04-30-2008, 06:07 PM
You aren't going to be able to fit any tire to speak of on Jason's rims. Yeah, they look good from the side, but is the offset correct?

I think those things are 17x7s. You need like... 17x9 on that thing.

Take a gander around buddy.... These prices are cheap, and they're entirely decent wheels.


04-30-2008, 10:39 PM
You should buy mine! :bigthumbu

04-30-2008, 10:55 PM
hell yea 17s are the best. you cant go wrong with them. and if you got bigger then that tires are goin to be very expencive

05-01-2008, 12:54 AM
hey aaron, youre a jew....g35 rims would look the best.................

05-01-2008, 03:16 AM
Dude Ben....XXR does not have prices on their site. The only rim I like is the XXR 006 and they do not have the wheel in a 17"X8 or so in hypersilver (The only color I want)

We will be mounting his wheels before I leave for TX to see what the look like.

If I need to get some spacers so be it

^Call them, they're pretty good about bending over backwards for you. This company was formerly known as Sportmax.

I have a set of their 002s from them, and they were really good about helping me choose offset, answering questions about the wheel vs other options so on and so forth.

They may be able to do it in hypersilver for you.
