LS400 Missing hubcap! Are these stock wheels?

Recommended Posts

Curious if anyone recognizes these wheels as stock? They are on my 1997 LS400 Coach I just purchased and I can't find a replacement hubcap.

No, they are not original wheels.  The 1997 LS400 Coach Edition came with wheels that looked like the standard wheels on the 1998-2000 LS400 although I think the finish was different - see the attached photo of a 1997 LS400 Coach Edition.

Finding replacement hub caps / wheel centers for aftermarket wheels can be difficult to impossible since an aftermarket wheel style might be sold for only a limited time.  Have you looked on the back side of one of the wheels to see if there is anything about who made them?

Okay awesome, that's what I thought. It was owned by an older gentleman before. I couldn't imagine him putting aftermarket wheels on it.

Anyway, one of the wheels has a small air leak so I'm just going to buy the matching wheels off Craigslist. I wanted to keep the car mostly original which is the reason I was wondering about the hubcap but I'm not worried about it if these aren't the original wheels. Thank you for your help!
