Where does tuning actually begin? For many, tuning begins with a lowering or a loud sports exhaust and an increase in performance is for a large part the epitome of a tuned car. But what if we take the trouble and compare the question with a statistic? Then it turns out that in a good 70% of all vehicle owners who want to change the rims of the vehicle are replaced first. Even before classic chip tuning or lowering, new rims are the most popular tuning utensil of all, but at the same time often one of the most expensive subsequent changes.
The choice to swap the rims is understandable in my eyes, because often the rims installed ex works are not always unsightly or even ugly, the problem is that the standard rims are selected in the manufacturer's configurator and that ultimately has thousands of other buyers of a, in this case Acura TLX, also done. In addition, the wheel sets are trimmed in the direction of mainstream optics ex works and of course not very individual because they should ultimately appeal to the general public.
The repertoire of Vossen Wheels
All good reasons for a new set of wheels! What could be more obvious than looking around in the Vossen Wheels repertoire to see whether a suitable alternative to the wheelset installed ex works can be found? The owner of this white Acura TLX has "the wheelset project“And the standard rims were exchanged for a Vossen Wheels VFS-5 (VFS5) wheel set in 20 inches and the color silver. If you look at the selection of rims from Vossen Wheels then it becomes clear to us why it had to be this provider! Vossen only has high-quality rims in its range and an attractive selection of designs in stock.
As you can see, there was something suitable for the TLX and the project could begin. In addition to the built-in and very attractive rims, the Acura has received a few other changes that we are only aware of based on the photos, unfortunately we have not yet received any technical details. No matter the main focus of the car is of course on the VFS-5 wheelset which certainly does not miss the standard rims and is an absolute asset to the TLX. The vehicle immediately looks more dynamic and sporty, which is always a plus. We took a closer look at the pictures of the vehicle and made a comparison with the production version and were able to determine one or the other change to the rims.
What we have learned directly from Vossen Wheels and have recognized ourselves, we provide you in a summary as usual below. Should you notice any further changes, we would be happy if you post them in the "comment box", we will then add them to the post as soon as possible.
Ps. If you have more tuned vehicles like this one Lexus RC-F (RC F) or even one Porsche 911 Carrera S (991) with Vossen Wheels just click on the name of the tuner at the photo hint (below the picture)!
