F Sport Wheel Options

I am looking at getting the F Sport in Atomic Gray. Any opinions on which wheel option to go with?


18-in split-five spoke alloy with the black inside spokes or the split-five spoke with the superchrome finish?

18-in split-five spoke alloy with the black inside spokes since I've never been a fan of chrome but it's ultimately up to you.

I would concur. I'm just not a huge fan of chrome. Given that it is already on the vehicle I think its best to keep the chrome at a sparing level.

If you live somewhere that gets winter weather and plan on having these as your only set of wheels.... the road salt could damage chrome.

I love the pictures of the superchrome! I'm waiting to see what it actually looks like but have not seen one yet. Unless you are ordering it and waiting for it to come over on the boat, I think we're pretty much limited to what's here on the lots already. I am always checking out two or three of the closest Lexus dealers around my area and have yet to see even one F-sport with the superchrome. I was trying to get one with the triple-beam headlights but the only ones that have it are fully loaded and even the fully-loaded ones are really scarce with the triple-beams.

It's one of the reasons why i'll be weighing out my aftermarket wheel options, then there's wheels from Five Axis (a Toyota company), i'm sure they have wheels that'll look good on the NX, but they may not be for everyone.

The 5 spoke wheels with the black looks good on Atomic Silver. I also like the triple LED headlights they are far better then the HIDs on BMWs.

Not a big fan of the triple LED lights, I like the standard ones more.

If you live in a snowy area be careful about getting 19 inch or larger wheels. I had them on both a X3 and a X1. Unless you put on winter tires they were squirrely on slippery surfaces.
