The wife got new sneakers for the Solara and because of this, the Venti V53's she had on it will become my Spring/Summer wheels. Because the chrome is flaking on one of them, and before I spend a lot of time and $$$ having the wheels sandblasted and powdercoated, I would like to find out if anyone would happen to know if my '08 EX AWD would have an issue running them.

The stats are as follows:
Venti V53 20x8.5J with offset +38 running Ventus Sport K104 245/35ZR20

Also, has anyone had any experience removing chrome in place of polished aluminum or powdercoat and ballpark idea what it would cost?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Regards,

Here’s a virtual photo of what my car would look like with the Venti V53 wheels installed. I’m torn because I’m also considering selling the wheels and getting a set of BF Goodrich A/T KO tires to mount to the stock wheels.
Opinions please.

nice looking wheels! I used to running 8.5 20 on k104 40's same off set on my 03, no rubbing on a stock height and DYI on powdercoating/paint, save you a bunch of mula. ;-)

The wheels look great! They go especially well with the color on your E.
