For as long as I’ve been here, a joke amongst us here at ModBargains has been to tease our Customer Service rep Eric Li about when he was going to get a set of wheels for his Lexus IS350 F-Sport. Well, that time finally came recently, and Eric ordered himself a set of new wheels for Lexus IS. Eric went with a set of VOSSEN Wheels, the new Vossen CVT Wheels for Lexus, featuring a twisted, straight spoke design with a bit of concavity. After mounting them up to do one final check for clearance, we took the IS350 F-Sport outside to admire the difference.
Vossen CVT Wheels for Lexus are Directional, meaning they’re twisted to face forwards on both sides of the car. With a bit of counsel from the Mod Experts, Eric went with a staggered fitment of 19×8.5 / 19×10, wrapped in Falken FK453 tires to keep the Lexus Sport Sedan planted.
As we mentioned earlier, the Vossen CVT wheels also have a bit of concavity, which is especially apparent in the 10 inch wide rear wheels.
Even at stock ride height, the Vossen CVT wheels look totally at home on Eric’s F-Sport.
We love how the Lexus came out, and though we can’t rib him anymore about “When you getting your wheels?”, now we can ask, “So when you gonna drop the Lexus?”. Of course, it’s all in good fun because the car looks great as it is, and we look forward to helping Eric mod the car, one step at a time.
