Your thoughts?

Thinking about getting these wheels for my white CH-R. Thoughts?

Not bad looking, though they could be a pain to clean. Curious what they would look like in motion with those red accents. Going up in size?

Staying with same size because I don't know enough about tires to know how it will effect my ride. I'm not interested in better handling, only comfort as this is my long daily commute vehicle. I also have an FJ Cruiser that has close to 200K miles on it, hence why I have this CH-R now. I like the way it rides now and don't want to interfere with that. I just want to improve the looks from the stock wheels that came with my LE model.

I've narrowed it down to those wheels, vs these

If you clean your car yourself, don't do it. You'll hate your decision after a few washes lol

I prefer the second option but they will still be a pita to clean as others have said. I think white accents will look better on your white car. Much of a difference in price?

About the same. They are both from TireRack and less than $700 for a set of 4. They even sell the Vortex wheels that come on the XLE models for a fraction of what Toyota sells them for, $500 vs $1200.

Looking forward to seeing them @jdillard. Should make a big difference in the overall aesthetics of the car. Any idea if you've saved any weight over the factory setup? Might even see a slight improvement in your fuel economy. Great price for a set of aftermarket wheels imo and not surprised to hear about the massive markup from Toyota.

No idea on weight. Fuel economy seems better but hard to tell since I am still getting used to driving her.
