IS300 with Sportmax 962 wheels...

I know there are some haters out there in regards to the Sportmax 962's on an IS300 ... here are some pictures of mine with newly installed 18" Sportmax 962's (plus a few other Altezza mods) - let me know what you think! There aren't any other IS300 pics out there that I know of with 962's other than one with gunmetal wheels.

I kinda like them. Looks a lil too big for the spokes...maybe if you had some 19s or 20s, they'd be better for you. But, thats just IMO. Looks good overall and as long as you like them. GGP love BTW!

Im not feeling them, they look smaller than 18's. At least I know why people stay away from them....so have some rep!
