22" Lexani LSS 55 Black & Orange

Here are my new Lexani LSS 55!! Lov'n em!! Better Pics 1/16/11

4/9/11 Do not reccomend these wheels.. They are an automotive paint.. and the offset isnt perfect.. Discount Tire Changed my tire size for me, becuz the front tire was gettning into fender.. in the process they scratched 3 of 4 wheels and had to send back to factory to be repainted (thank god i9 still had my stock wheels) Waited around a month for them to return.. they scratched the 1st wheel they tried mounting a tire on.. Needless to say i asked for a refund and am now waiting on my forgetstar f-14's in 22" matte black to arrive!! cant wait

Partially yes... i would say it was discount tires fault.. The problem i forsee with the wheels is this... they were scratched on 2 seperate occasions when discount was obviously being as careful as possible and using plastic guards( doubt they really like the idea of having to send wheels back to Lexani to be repainted, money losing situation for them, not gonna stay in business long having to do this) so my question is this.. If the wheels scratch that easy what are they going to look like after a year.. offset is to great as well.. My friend drives a camaro with giovanni kilis, pfadt drop springs and had no issues running the pirelli 305/30/22's. I ran these tires as well on the lexanis, and the offset created an issue of the tire getting into the sheet metal of the inner fender.. Maybe my opinion.. but multiple issues in such a short time,, do not reccomend! although I can say I loved the look of the wheel!!

Anybody who wants to deal with this issue.. discount tire in Farmington NM has these wheels and tires for sale for 2 grand (1 wheel slightly scratched)
