I'm tired of the staggered and stretched wheel setup I bought my is300 with and I've been looking to replace it with a 17" squared setup. I've had my eye on a set of superlites


but I'm wondering if anyone has/had them on and would be willing to share a picture and review. Otherwise, I'm open to suggestions on rims.

I can't give any details on the superlites, but I can comment on the weight reduction of the wheels. I swapped out my OEM wheels for lightweight aluminum ones, OEM are like 23lbs, the ones I picked up are ~18, so ~20lbs saved from rotating mass.

And it makes the car feel a solid 5%, maybe 10% more peppy.

As for the weight on the superlites, if they're even lighter than stock, their weight isn't listed on the site for the link you gave.

As an opinion, I don't think the ones you linked would be a good match for our cars, they even say they're meant for muscle cars. But it's your car, so make it look how you want!
