2013 Lexus GS 350: Dark-Finish Wheels

June 24, 2013

2013 Lexus GS 350

Our long-term 2013 Lexus GS 350 has a dark finish on the alloy wheels. As part of the F Sport package, we get 19-inch split-five-spoke alloy wheels with a dark graphite finish.

I like the way they look in combination with our Nebula Gray Pearl paint. It gives the car a subdued edginess.

What about you? Do you prefer a brushed aluminum look, shiny chrome, or this darkened finish?

    I LOATHE dark finished or black wheels and think Lexus is making a mistake by not giving buyers an option on the Fsport GS as well as the IS-F.

    I like anthracite-colored wheels on darker cars. Shiny chrome is awful in most vehicles except for a few painted in white. Aluminum is just boring in my opinion.

    my neighbor got his IS350's wheels re-painted anthracite over the previous silver finish. thinking of doing the same if we ever get our e90 wheels repainted.
