What do you guys think looks better on the IS300, the original Sport Design 11 spoke wheels or a newer generation IS350 OEM wheels (2nd or 3rd gen)? I'm looking for opinions so discussion is pretty open. Budget isn't an issue since the wheels are all within my price range. I'm also open to hearing opinions on recommended aftermarket wheels that looks great on the IS300. However, I'm trying to go for an OEM look.

if budget isnt an issue, why limit yourself to OEM wheels? my vote is for reputable aftermarket wheels. i really like the 57 DR and CR models rays makes, they look great on this chassis and arent as expensive as TEs or 3 piece wheels.

I'm not too familiar with aftermarket wheels and know what brands are out there, I always stuck with OEM wheels my whole life for all my cars up until I really dislike the OEM 5 spoke wheels on the IS300. What's the 57 DR and CR models? Pictures would also be helpful.

I think the original sport design rims looked amazing! For Aftermarket, (if budget isnt an issue) I would look at Rotiform - they have some amazing Forged rims!

I am going to start saving up for some Rotiforms myself.

Budget friendly: for cast rims - I have Motegi Racings on both my and my fiance's RX300. They have done really well by us; paired with some nice Michelin Tires we have no complaints.

my post says who makes them. use google. you will find plenty of images.

there is also more than one IS350 OEM wheel. you will have to be more specific. with that being said, its all subjective. so just pick what looks best to you and go with it. there isnt a one size fits all answer here.

posh, they're called wheels. not 'rims'. a rim is a portion of the wheel.

I also thought they look great too. I am just asking if anyone else thinks there's anything else that looks even better while keeping the OEM look and feel.

I'm bad at the aftermarket wheels department, I wasn't sure which wheel you were referring to, tried Googling, didn't find the answer, so I wanted pictures to get a better idea. Any IS350 OEM wheel is fine, I just purely want opinions from others, whether they are subjective or not, critical, bias, anything. Looking for OEM wheels since I wanted the Lexus logo in the middle of the wheel.
