While i was searching for wheel restoration since i sratch both of the right side rims while I was turning.


I came across this http://www.transwheel.com/search/page674.htm
Stock 17" rims for 200.00 each. Well I have seen someone quoted 375.00 each at dealers, so I just wanna let you guys know. I might go back to my dealer and maybe let them check it out, and see how much the reparation cost.

hope its not too much.

BTW, could it be possible that bumping into a curb while turning affect the alignment.
The speed wasn't too high about 10-15 miles. Also it was moving straight into the curbs, it was kinda sliding against it, but it was definitely a bump.

thx guys

That's a very good price. Are you sure they aren't "designer imposters"
Thanks for the info. I wonder if they sell the graphite wheels.

C'mon, look at that wheel picture!

It's obviously cut from a larger picture of a wheel mounted on an IS. I'd be a lot surer of this if it was a picture of the wheel alone. Wouldn't that be easy if these were even in stock? But then again, they use the same photo clipping technique on other rims they sell, so maybe that's their standard practice.

Or maybe I'm just a suspicious [email protected]@rd.

I was looking on their website...
Seems these people buy rims too.

They refinish rims.
They sell refinished rims.
They buy damaged rims.
They exchange refinished rims for your damaged ones.

I love this site.
Maybe they do graphite? Yes please...

What are you talking about? Winter rims? Are they wool?

Lexus makes their 17 inch rim for something around 375. No tire.

These are the stock rim, not a sport upgrade.

Anyway, at www.transwheel.com you can supposedly get them really cheap as they are refinished. Maybe they turn them into winter rims too. Add a little fuzzy wool here, some fleece on the inside, and dangle smores of the spokes.
