    I'm going to replace one of the 17 inch 5 spoke wheels on my wifes LS. Is it "silver" or "gray"? If I'm going to order one I want to make sure its correct because this seller indicates both were available? They indicate silver , chrome , bronze and gray? I thought the 5 spoke 17s were only painted ( silver ? ) or polished ( chrome appearance ).
    Please see this sellers ad as they list colors......

    I bought four Like new five spoke silver wheels for $100 dollars on craigslist ...I would seriously consider looking on Facebook marketplace or craigslist before paying $133 for 1 wheel

    I would call your local dealer and give them the VIN# of your LS... and ask THEM what color your factory rims are.

    The 02 LSE had a gray/gunmetal version of the Sport wheel with a polished lip. Maybe that's what they're referring to. I've never seen bronze though. Sending a picture of yours to the seller may help clear things up.

    For what it's worth, the silver on my original gen 1 Sports looks the same as my Jaguar Zeus set. 3 of them were refurbed locally with that shop's standard silver, 1 was bought as a refurb online. They all look the same to me, or at least are close enough in shade that the distance between them makes it impossible to tell
