The owner of this RC F was interested in improving the looks of his vehicle, to give it a more aggressive stance while maintaining the factory look. To attain this, a set of VFR Wheel Spacers were recommended and installed. Wheel spacers are one of the most easily accessible upgrade available in the aftermarket industry. Essentially, a wheel spacer “rounds” off the overall look of your car by extending the wheel and tire to the outer edge of the fender. The end result is a look where the wheel and tire look flushed with the fender making it seem as one cohesive vertical line when looked from front or back. As an added bonus, wheel spacers also increase the track width of your vehicle at each axle. Not only you improve the looks of your car but you also improve the performance. The wider stance will enhance cornering, straight line stability and braking. It is the equivalent of installing wider tires without the side effect of added unsprung weight.
On this Lexus RC F, we installed a set of 15mm spacers at all four corners. They are perfectly match to the RC F. These VFR Wheel Spacers are of hub centric design and are manufactured of light alloys. The particular design and build construction allows them to work in conjunction with the vehicle’s stock suspension and wheels with no additional vibrations or tire rubbing when cornering at higher speeds. This modern-day muscle car now looks as it should have from the factory and will perform better too. All of the available 467 bhp will be put to the ground more efficiently.
Next on this Lexus wish list are performance suspension upgrades and a high performance exhaust system. With each performance enhancement, this RC F is one step closer to his racing counterpart the RC F GT500 currently participating in the Japan GT500 series.
