    Look like Ray's wheels. Possibly Volks or Advans. Popular with the imports. Super common, 20 different knockoffs of the design.

    They're tough to price since they're so hard to find.

    KennyD's set has a bunch of upgrades so they are the nicest and highest end of the market. There's a pair of rear wheels for sale on eBay for $3500 for just the two. I'd say they're somewhere inbetween. I had them shipped from the UK originally...they were tough to track down.

    I believe these are made by Neez and they are centre lug only if I recall correctly...but I agree they look deadly.

    edit: nevermind I believe they do come in 5-lug. They're at the very high end of the market as far as cost however. Expect to pay 5 figures.

    IMO and in my experience, 19' Rims, while totally look cool are not worth the sacrifice in ride quality on the 355.

    the stocks are most beautiful anyways.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    I personally would use 19's around the city for aesthetics and put the stocks or challenge wheels back on for spirited driving.

    Dude, that seems like going to a lot of trouble.

    Maybe others can chime in with their experience. Perhaps they had better luck than myself

    I could understand if you're not mechanically inclined...but swapping wheels takes like 30 minutes at home.

    I have both 18s and 19s and there is no noticeable difference in ride.
    I race on my 18s, cruise on my 19s.

    You "would use", or you "do use"?
    Like said above its a lot of work changing the wheels just to go out for a spirited drive and then swap them back to 19s just to cruise around town/city lol. Then maybe put the standard wheels on again tonight because you fancy going for yet another spirited drive lol :D
    Who does that?;)
