I was running on 18" Falken rims..... in silver. by chance i ran into someone that wanted to trade for his TRD rims in chrome.... I personally love chrome but do firmly believe that Chrome doesn't always work with the vehicle.

Either way we ended up trading and so now I have the before and after pictures....

Before: :)

what kind of lip is that
Stillen... I'm currently trying to find some side skirts that would match with this lip... I've made up my mind about the rear... it'll be Vizage.

UptownIS300er,

I am not a fan of chrome especially on the IS300, but for some reasons, the wheel looks good 8) on your GGP.

Are the new wheels 18's? What suspension setup do you have? How's the ride?

The wheels feel great and sturdy.... I guess its moving up to 8's.... They are 18x8 all around.... i would like to go staggered but I figure till the next set of rims where i go GUnmetal w/ polished lip... i think staggered will look better. The ride is excellent, almost identical to stock but softer.... They are wrapped in Falken Ziex 512's.... 225/40ZR dropped w/ Tein HT's and Koni shocks..... I drove around a lil bit and re-adjusted the Koni shocks for a more softer ride... they are excellent... not too much bounce and not hard at all. Bumps are alot less felt now.
