    I am looking for a set of the 17" Lincoln LS wheels pictured below. If you have a set and are upgrading your wheels, please let me know. I am interested in your factory wheels.

    Have you considered the factory chrome 17's that came with the 1st gen. Sport package?

    In person, they look very nice for a factory set, IMO.

    Anyone have thoughts on whether or not these would look good on a silver LS? (chrome grille, 6 piece chrome pillar set)
    YOu can find them relatively cheap online sometimes but I'm afraid they wouldn't look good.

    Yep, those are the wheels I am looking for. I don't really like the 2000-2002 wheels. I am not a big fan of any of the aftermarket wheels I have seen, so I just want a nice set of factory chromes to replace my machine finish wheels.

    I have set of these wheels brand new in the box in my garage. They have the center caps and lug nuts. I'd sell them for $700 shipped if someone wanted them. I got them to put on my LS once I decided to sell it.

    I love my wheels. By far the best looking stock wheels for the LS. Five stars are soooo played out.

    so from your research your saying that it'll fit no probs? or do you believe some slight modifications would be in order??

    I really don't know. Do you know what the factory offset is on your car? If it is 60mm or less then they should work.
