Custom Wheels on the LS

OK enclosed are pics of new rims for the LS. Got them at TireRack for $89 each. Took the tire pressure monitors and the tires off the Steelies for ~$100 at Allied Tire. They could not reuse the stock valve stems (intergal to the TPMS) so you will need new ones that will work with the monitors - get at your dealer or I should have asked TireRack ($12). The cars' tire pressure information system reset itself to the tire pressures after 5 miles of driving on the new rims. Sold the steelies for $299.

I think they look very good and considering the price I would say it`s a pretty good buy. To me they seem to fit the car.

The photo's of course need to be reshot. The time of day and the angle to the sun is all wrong in those pics. They will look a lot better with right sun, background and some zanio on the car. Maybe paint the calipers.

Also the tires need some shine up too.

With a bit of window tint will also improve the look.

you know this is a very good design when even the most basic trim package looks as good as the top model. I think this trim package is the most retro of all the trim levels. those wheels you posted look good, but I think the ls has a good place just the way it sets.
