View Full Version : I'm thinking of selling my Lexus GSI300 wheels

Actually I'm only toying with the idea of selling, I'm really interested in a valuation if possible.

They are all in perfect condition, except the rear driver's side rim which I 'slightly' kerbed last week (bugger), and also the centre cap has been resprayed due to an incident with a pressure washer (previous owner). Other than that all is fine.

Unfortunately if you want to have a look, you'll have to visit my garage to see the wheels on the car (as I'm using MacOS9 I can't upload pics onto these posts).

They are 9 spoke brushed metal exterior, with an anthracite/gun metal finish to the 'apertures' between the spokes. They are lovely, but I'm thinking of 5, 6 or 7 spoke 18" alloys with hopefully a black interior (apertures) silver exterior, not split rims in 9" (front) and 10" (rear).

Any help from anyone would be most appreciated. Please don't tell me to search, cos I've had a look, and the best I've seen for reference are O.Z Vela or Hydra. Unfortunately not available in my size!

Cheers!
Andrew :)

I should qualify that this would be for the wheels only. The tyres are relatively new, and would want to transfer them to the new ones ideally.

I have these alloys on my car (so does Peter Richards)...and they really suit it IMO, plus they also have the correct offset so theres no messing about.

Just thought I'd add that you can buy TTE center caps (TTE make the alloys) to replace the Lexus ones. You can purchase them directly from TTE (www.tte.de). The Part No is AM27533. They are (or where when I purchased mine) 16.57 Euro each.

Thanks very much for the referall for the replacement centre caps. I've looked everywhere and I think even posted a request a while back for info on these. I will contact Florian and see if I can get 4 centre caps. Thank you.

I know they look pretty good, but I've always preferred fewer spokes, and if I can find a good source of alternative wheels that will fit with the correct offsets I would be very interested in replacing them.

good price you paid there pete!

i still stand by my valuation, although perhaps closer to the 900 or maybe just below given the slight kerbing.

Yes they are 9" front 10" rear. I've emailed Florian, so I'll wait a response. The kerbing should be easy to fix. I'll give Wicked Wheels a call soon for a price.

as there is a black edge on the rim its easy to repair .
sand down the scuff and just repaint black , ive even as a quick fix used a permanant marker pen

I've had a reply from Florian already. Approx 90 euros for the set delivered. Not bad at all, and such a fast response. Excellent.

Thank you for the tip, Peter, about the wheel scuff. I will do that at weekend when I bring the car in to our factory to clean the interior etc.

Cheers for the info/advice Angarak and Mr Richards. Invaluable.

I ordered some TTE centre caps, and they were delivered, and installed on the wheels yesterday. Look fantastic. Will have to take some new photos for my garage soon.

Excellent. I won't have to sell the wheels now! :)

Yes they are 9" front 10" rear.
They're 8" fronts not 9"

I stand corrected. Its a shame they aren't 9" as the fronts could do with a slightly deeper dish IMO

Yeah but if they had slightly deeper dish they'd rub on your arch liners dude. So are you still selling the wheels?

For some reason when the wheels had the Lexus centre caps on them I didn't like them that much, but now I've got the TTE caps on I think they really work.

So no I won't be selling them any time soon, but I do have my eye on some others, but only time will tell if I get them!
