Lexus GS With GT-R Touch by Matt Rus

Posted by

I don’t often see cars rolling on other manufacturers wheels. The more typical upgrades of course are aftermarket wheels. To me, any car which chooses OEM wheels must choose very carefully and select a good combination, otherwise the results will almost always look a bit funny and amateurish.

The owner of this Lexus GS450h made it happen and pulled off a successful OEM swap perfectly. He put those iconic RAYS forged 20 inch R35 GT-R wheels on his Lexus and the result shown below is a super nice VIP GS. Add the Job Design body kit and you get a sleek appearance with wheels from the champion. Bold World coilovers helps to fit the Rays wheels under the fenders. This will surely not be the end of R35 GT-R wheels being used elsewhere…with one of the best OEM wheel designs of the past decade, these wheels are sure to be a go-to selection for many more cars to come.

Cars You Would Not Expect To Be Rocking Volks

Posted by

Volk RE30 On Ford GT

I thought I’d make a post on some cars you’d never expect to see rocking Volk wheels. Thanks to Phillip at Mackin, I have a few pictures to show.

Without a doubt Rays makes some highly functional wheels, but due to marketing and image its unfortunate that often they dont get much play on non Japanese cars. In recent years we’re seeing more of them on BMWs, Porsches and other German cars thanks to Rays international marketing, but still it is relatively rare to see some of our favorite Japanese rims on a wider range of rides. The Ford GT above is a great use of the lightweight 1pc forged RE30 wheels and I’m sure it was a great upgrade for that car.

Here’s a picture I took in Japan 10 years ago of a Japanese market Camaro Z28 with Te37s. This car was my own personal introduction to this topic. Sorry for the low res pic, thats how they made digital cameras back then!

That JDM Camaro was up on game, check the Brembo BBK hiding behind those TE37s. I’m sure this was a super tough car for the late 1990s in Japan.

One more car for this topic: Te37s on a BMW X5. This is something I never thought I’d see.
