The Lexus dealer where I purchased my RX400H insists on chroming their wheels. Now that the vehicle is almost ten years old, the chrome is starting to flake on the wheels and one in particular will not hold air more than a week or so.
Time for new wheels. I wanted the simplest design available with the idea of being easy to clean. Curved edges are great, little sharp corners not.
I was concerned that these wheels were manufactured in China. Setting aside the idea of sending our money to China, I questioned the quality. Some Chinese stuff is great, some not so much.
But . . . the price was the reason for taking the chance with these wheels. The wheels were well packaged and shipped with all necessary hardware to mount the wheels on the vehicle.
After a month of using them, I am extremely satisfied. They look fantastic on the car. Very clean looking! Quality of manufacture is very good. No complaints. I lost the ability to use my Lexus wheel lug nut lock, but these new wheels use a spline type bolt and needs a special tool to mount/unmount. Someone with a traditional lug wrench will not be able remove these wheels from your car.
I'm trying to talk myself out of purchasing a second set for use with snow tires for winter driving.
Very happy with these, and as always, Tire Rack service and speed of delivery is second to none.
