Default Lexus LFA Style Wheels, Thoughts?

Hello everyone, Im ready to pull the trigger on some wheels, I found these and I just would like some feed back. I would probably go with two rears instead of the staggered. But the rear is 9.5 but im not sure about the offset working, its 45. Or I could go with two fronts and I think everything would be fine. But this means nothing unless I choose to get them. So tell me what you think. Lexus LFA Wheels and they come in three finishes.

$699.00 Ebay
Brand New Set of Four (4)
19" LFA Style Staggered Wheels
w/ Center Caps Included
Specifications:
Size: 19x8.5 Front / 19x9.5 Rear
Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3
Offset: 38 Front / 45 Rear

If you go with rears only, they won't work in the front with 45 offset. You'll need to bring the offset down to 38, 35 or so to fit perfect.

Even in the rear, 45 offset is too high. You'll need to bring it down to 38

I had 20x8.5 on my 04 Maxima but I dont remember the offset. So if I went with these, and chose the fronts, would the 38 offset look flush or would I need some spacers to bring to 35. Keep in mind I would like to do the Wilwood BBK front and back real soon. So whats the best option? Thanks DB!

He said he might just go with two fronts which are 38mm, which would work fine. I think you got them mixed up.

Go black!

8.5 wide would not be flush with +38 or even +35. It would have to be like +25 to be flush on a 8.5 wide wheel. Now 10 wide with +35 or +38 would be flush.

The ones in your sig?? Those are not flush bud, sorry. I have tried many wheels with different offset s and 8.5 will not sit flush with +35 or +38. Just not gonna happen. 10 wide, yes. My Volks now are 9.5 wide with +35 and sit flush. Maybe your tires were flush but the the rim part of the wheel.

When I bought the set I have now, they came with 20x9 with 30 offset and that sat a bit in. I used 3mm spacers to bring it down to 27 offset and it sat beautiful. Then I bought another set of the same wheel and used the 20x10 in the front with the same spacers and made all my 20x10 (front and rear) sir flush with +35 offset. If you want to get these wheels as a set of staggered or not, you'll need to get 10mm spacers for the front and rear to bring the offset to perfect, flush look.

My opinion is not to use that much spacers in size.. Get wheels that look similar, but have a lower offset. Or you can get these and use spacers. It's up to you.

Thanks man! Wheels make the car IMO. So I want to make the right choice. Im not totally sold on the wheels I posted. Thats why I posted so I could get some feed back on the looks. They kinda look like the new Maxima wheels. I also have my eyes on these concave wheels.

Be careful about center bore size. Lexus is quite a bit smaller than Nissan's.
