thanks for the input. I think its because camry owners want style without sacrificing comfort. 17 and 18's are pretty much comfortable.

Hey does this car belong to a member here? I've always liked these wheels in the dark graphite color. They can be had really cheap but does anybody know where to get these Toyota center caps? I've looked and haven't found any real info. Best I found was that the Toyota Avensis center caps fit but where does one find those? I put Acura CL wheels on my accord back in the day and I was able to buy just the H logo (official Honda part from dealer) which I drilled into the Acura center cap and it had adhesive on the back and had little locking like washers that compressed onto the pegs behind the center cap anybody knows if Toyota makes these?




Apparently this is what was talked about but from what I found this is a 16" Sasceo aftermarket alloy wheel for Toyota Avensis II So again I've hit a dead end.

Note:

For the IS250/350 18" wheels, since the rear are at +50, you need a very small spacer for it to clear the strut, I used a 3mm and it's fine.

thanks man. I wasn't sure if it will fit with no problems without the 3mm spacers.

Toyota Centercaps are really hard to find.. the size is 2 5/8's inches. i found mine on ebay. fitment of the OEM Camry and Avalon wheels fit. as well as the gen 8 and 9 Corolla.

hope this helps.

What is the compromise with using the Enkei EKM3 vs. the G-spider wheels. I know that I will need a hub centric ring. What else… weight? I have a white 09 CE. You think a silver or gunmetal will look nicer.

both are made by enkei... one is model specific oem and the other is aftermarket. the good thing about the enkei's is they have 18x8 +40 which pushes the rims to the fender a tad better. weight the enkei's might be lighter. Price? Better deal with lexus. IMO.

Hey Jan, good job putting this helpful thread together. :clap:
Thanks Sir! :thumbsup:

If they can be had cheap I'd like to know where. That's what I'm looking for, but I'm settling for the LExus IS250 wheels. 'cause I'm cheap. Hah.
ebay,clublexus and craigslist. theres a guy selling IS250/350 wheels for 350 now @ club lexus.

for take-offs, i would pay 300-600 a set. for new wheels like the ones i had, i payed 950 for wheels. 700 for tires.

I've been looking at that ad. I was actually referring specifically to that model wheel - I like the simple pattern.

I'm probably gonna pick up some from a local craigslist guy if I can talk him down a bit.

My car has the "low tire pressure" idiot light.

I have no idea how this system works. Is this something I need to worry about when installing new wheels/tires? I notice when I did some comparison pricing on the Firestone Auto Care website (wow, waste of time) that it had a checkbox for this type of thing.

There is a sensor in each of your wheel/tire that send a signal to a receiver inside your car. So when you tire has low pressure the light will come up.
So check the pressure on all your tires to make sure they within specs of 30 psi. Toyota recommends 30 psi for our Camry but most of us go between 32 and 35 psi. If the light keep coming back within a few days that mean you have a slow leak that need to be fix.
When you install a new wheels, you will need to transfer these sensors to your new wheels for obvious reason.
