I was just wondering if anybody here could photochop a matador red 350 rims and make them have a chrome finish? I just read a thread where a guy posted his matador red 350 with chrome rims, but I couldn't get a good look at the wheels. Also wanted some opinions about chrome rims with the matador red, particularly making the stock ones chrome. I feel the darker the car, the better the chrome rims look. The matador red falls in the middle of the light vs dark scheme to me. Im debating on getting the stock rims in chrome. The stock finish doesn't look to bad to me. I was thinking if I didn't get the chrome rims, I would get the navigation instead.

PS did see the thread with the new IS350 photo chopped, but didn't notice any stock chrome.

I agree; those are so ugly! I think certain chrome rims belong on
SUVs - the only chromes that tend to look good are iForged and
HREs ($$$$$$$) ;)

those arent chrome, they are high polished... thats why they look good.

That's the car I was talking about. I can't really make out the rims to well. So you guys don't care for chrome rims to much at all. Are you guys fine with the stock 350 wheels?

If you have the means, definitely import the optional 18" rims for the new IS from Lexus Japan. I have no idea what Lexus USA is thinking not importing it but IMO this is the sexiest wheel design coming out of Lexus ever. Get them if you can!!:)

yeah. i sorta suck at tinting the windows. i think it was just a terrible picture quality and i just went overboard with the shading. see if this is any better (tinted, GS wheels, smoked tails. i think i'm in love):

Those are real nice. Would they fit on a 1st gen IS?
