CEC Wheels Dresses Up the Lexus LFA for SEMA


In preparation for its feature spot at the CEC Wheels SEMA display, the Pearl Grey Lexus LFA will be getting some new shoes — here’s a sneak peek:

Hard to judge without seeing the full vehicle, but right now, it’s tough to imagine any else but the original wheels on the LFA.

(Thanks Allison!)

Update: Lexus Magazine has posted some additional photos of the new wheels:

    Nice wheel, but this is the sort of case in which… people complain too much, and they end up with something bland.

    I don’t think it’s good looking on Lexus LFA , because it doesn’t have much negative offset to match the low & wide LFA .

    “These minor quibbles aside, the LFA is an amazing car—and an amazing achievement. Out of the box, Toyota’s first supercar beats a Ferrari. Yeah, you read that correctly. If Toyota put the same soul and ­passion into the rest of its cars, the company would be unbeatable.”

    @Tilps: I feel like an idiot now… for whining about the price of the LFA and not placing an order while my whole family called me obsessed and stupid.

    Very ordinary and bland wheels. I don’t like spindly spokes anyway. Why in the world would you put those on an LFA, just to be different???

  • Pete

    yeah they look cheap no matter how expensive they may be. this car needs a nice lip front and rear and an aggressive offset. these look like something you might find on a corolla

  • Travis

    Dont look right on a car that cost almost 400k…

    Neat on a civic… not so much on a supercar.

    What I find amazing is that this is the first ever CarAndDriver victory for a Lexus in the million comparos Lexus has taken part in. And in this first win, Lexus beat nothing less than the flagship Ferrari.

    How amazing and weird at the sametime is that?? LOL
