Lsportline Wheel

Recommended Posts

I've just ordered my first gs300 arriving tomorrow, very excited!!! I found the lexusownersclub via google, and must I say there is so much good info posted here, great for novices like me!

I am looking for some new wheels to replace the standard 16" wheels. I saw the Lsportline wheels and really liked the model 1.

Does anyone know if they come in 18"? Are they expensive? Does anyone else make a wheel similar?

thanks in advance.

What do you mean by they stopped making L-Sportline? Where did you hear this? So the location in CA is closed? I noticed website not working?

Just to clear some things up... Lexus the company has no affiliation with L-Sportline.. L-Sportline is just a aftermarket company.... If you throw on a L-Sportline Exhuast on your car they'll void your warranty..

Thanks to everyone who replied and to MrSypher for clarifying the status of L-Sportline and Lexus.

Another question, I'm currently riding on 16" factory rims, as you all would know, it rides very smoothly..... how will the ride be affected if I went to a 17" or 18" wheel and/or lowered the car by 1"?

No problem..

You should definitely upgrade both.. Going from 16's to 17's isn't really that big of a difference in ride.. You may feel bumps alittle more but nothing to loss sleep over.. But now remember, the bigger the rim the nicer your car will look and sometimes you have to sacrifice ride quality for looks and performance.. What ever you do, make sure you widen your stance with wider rims.. You'll handle alot better with extra rubber on the ground.. And I always say if your gonna upgrade your rims you should to the same to the suspension.. You don't have to be extreme like me but the lower you are the better.. L-Tuned has springs/struts that lower the car about 1" and will tighten it up a tad for the corners, plus it won't void your Lexus warranty if installed by a Lexus tech..

Tom, I forgot... Welcome to the Club...

BTW, whatever you do make sure you buy yourself some high quality rims.. You don't want to put something cheap on your beautiful car.. L-Sportline are good but they're heavy.. Go with some JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) wheels.. Not many people in the states have them or can even get them.. I have Work Rezaxx II on my GS and those things are soo strong.. Like last year when I took off my old rims for winter I noticed they all were bent, and I mean bent and mangled.. Now a few weeks ago when I was looking at me car on a lift 3 out of 4 were straight not bent at all.. But the other rim was bent to $hit, but that's because I was in an accident and it bent my front right rim.. But other than that it would have been fine.. And let me tell you, I hit a curb a few months ago after I was trying to drift around some turns in a park and the rim that hit the curb heldup.. I thought for sure it would have bent.. I'm very impressed with the quality of WOrk rims and if I were to ever switch to something different it would probably be to HRE's or I-Forged.. But that's it..
