Figured I should really look at replacing the Gen3 16" wheels which the missus' Mazda 6 is currently sitting on. So a quick trip to ebay and a couple of bids later and I'm the new owner of a set of 17" Lexus IS200 alloys with Dunlop tyres (with plenty of tread left) for a humongous £46 :cool:

Turns out all that is wrong with them is a little laquer peel and oxidisation on the diamond cut face. Nothing a quick sand and re-laquer won't sort out. Best bit is, no kerbing :)

This is the worst of them (cat optional):

And a quick mock up of how they will look on the Mazda:

ebay :)

Key is to just keep looking, some will turn up eventually, especially if you don't mind having a go at DIY refurbing.

Hutchy, how did you get these to fit? I know the stud pattern is the same but the centre bore for the Lexus is mm and the Mazda is is 67.3 mm (same as the coupe). Did you have them drilled out so they go over the hub as these are standard Lexus alloys or are they not sitting flush against the hub?
