These are the x-package wheels, it was a factory option that I fell in love with and had to get. If you are looking to stay with Lexus for rims why not check out the F-Sport wheels, they are kinda purdy.

EyeEss I am already planning my spring mods...first on the list is a wheel/brake mod. I am going to get wheel spacers/new pads/painted calipers.
So I am trying to decide on what color to paint my calipers...Should I go black calipers or something else? Should I go with Lexus logo on front calipers? I am also changing all my pads to the Hawk pads when I do this. As for wheel spacers, what size should I choose? I don't plan on changing my rims, I will change to stickier tires in the summer though as soon as I burn these treads a little more.

Gotta throw the redouts on my tail lights when I get a chance as well.

I live in NY also, I didn't realize they were summer tires until after I bought them. I ended up buying a set of winter rims and I have 0 worries in the winter now :D

btw check your sig for typo on "back on black"

Yeah, I threw on a trim to protect fenders because some jackass slammed their door into that exact area. I kept getting chips around there, so when I went to body shop I had them throw those on. It is very stealth in person, I am not sure if I am going to leave it on though.

I am thinking about painting calipers, but I am a noob heh. I might have to try it in the summer. As for a drop, X-Package allegedly came with a better suspension? I might have to pick up the F-Sport springs/Shocks.

They already are tinted heh, 35% all around from the dealer. Tints are all the way to the tip of the glass. I should have gone a little darker since I have a beige interior. I don't like tint that is too dark.
