Default Need help to source Lexani wheels.

Hi. My cousin wants to import these wheels for his car. The speciality of these wheels are that they are studded with crystals and look supercool. They're very expensive and the only company manufacturing these wheels is Lexani, as per our source.
Now the queries:
1) Has anyone seen these wheels in real?
2) Are they worth importing to India?
3) Any other companies manufacturing these wheels?

Any inputs will be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Can only answer question2 & the answer is NO. There's one importing these but some people would be willing to import a set for you on order.

iraghava: Can you PM me the persons name who imports it.

akshay1234: Well, its for his newly aquired white Cayenne turbo. So im sure it'll go well.

GTO: Thanks. He finalised on these after a lot of research. He was bored of seeing the same damn wheels on most of the Cayenne's.

The Cayenne will look really unique with these rims ... Very thin probability that any guy is importing these wheels in India.


My suggestion is that you ask any of your friends who are in US to pick up the wheells and ship it to you through DHL or any other courier service. You will have to pay customs duty when it lands here.



Another option is that you can check with dealers who import vehicles and spare parts and find out if they can import these wheel for you.

Hi Akshay. It'll be nice if you could photoshop the rims on the Cayenne. Would like to see how they look.

@ Ricky: Aint it good to be unique? Whats the sense of driving cars that look alike.

@ Bharat: Thanks mate. Have been in talks with the Lexani guys regarding the import. Will update soon.
