I found a guy locally selling a set (4) ES300 15 alloys for $120, That's a steal. But I can't see how it would look on my camry and I endlessly srearched everywhere for pictures of these wheels on a gen 4, but no luck. I already have alloys but not in good shape.

Wheels just like these


Going on this.


Other then the lexus center cap, would you roll on these? Do I loses the "sportiness" look with the Leuxs wheels instead of the toyota split-spokes?

Don't have time to shop it properly right now, sorry. But it hopefully will give you some idea of what it will look like.

Thanks for the photoshop. If I didn't have any alloys, I would have grab those wheels in seconds. But I think I'm still attach to my current wheels because they look the closest to two of my favorite wheels.

Enkie RP-F1 vs. OEM vs. Kosei K1-ST.


I guess I'll save the money for a set of Falken 912s this weekend.

I think the Lexus wheels work on the Lexus (don't love em but don't hate em either) and the wheels you have work on your Camry. I'd keep em. Although for that price, I'd be very tempted to buy those Lexus wheels.

If there's nothing wrong with the alloys, you can always buy them and if you don't like the look then sell them out, that's a great price anyway. And seriously though, I like the rims you have now.. you WILL lose the sporty look with the lexus wheels.

OEM 5 spoke looks alright, I kinda prefer the blades though. The RPF1's are really nice; if you have the money get those cause they're lightweight with better specs. Those and the TE37's are my all time favorite wheels; they look great on any car.

I just had new tires tires install but Firestone damaged my wheels, again.

I had to fight with them on the warrany from the old Bridgestone. I got 14k out of a 40k RE960. Perfect alignment, costant rotation and balance, even wear; I'm just hard on tires. It took two hours to negotiate four Falken ZE912 installed for $176. I think they hate me, and just jacked my wheels up, one cracked center cap, damage rim lip, and they rip out my chrome valve stems when I told them not to change them.

I think I'll save the money and wait to upgrade to 17" later on

Good call man. Keep what you have for now (those are my FAVORITE gen 4 wheels) and get 17's later on. :)

Good call on keeping them.

Time to take your business elsewhere. No one deserves that kind of abuse when they're a paying customer. :disappoin

I never had problem with this store in many of my pervious visits and service was ok (they never put the center caps on corrently). But I happen to meet the new store manager this time and I think he hates prorated warranty. I love how he tried to void my warrany by asking "Have my car been used for racing?" "Is it a commerical vehicle like a delivery or rental car?" :facepalm: What is he thinking? A rental...

Time to look for a new place for tires, and wheels. Hopefully these falken will take a while to wear out.
