that air suspension is probably keeping the car level so it doesn't rub..I have never heard rubbing on my 295/25/22 rears with my 600

LX, hoping you can provide some feedback on those Toyo Proxes 4...that 255/305 combo is starting to get my attention. Doesn't seem like many options besides the TP4s but the feedback I have seen has been good, but they aren't 305/25/22 sizes that were reviewed though. Hoping you can chime in on how things have been going for you so far with these my dude

So far I have 2,000 miles on the tires and road noise, comfort, and tread seem great. I have not been in any other LS's to compare ,I hope to do so in a future meet, but compared to my friends charger on falkens they were far better. Not lowered so I have no issues in regards to rubbing or anything, but the rear wheels are massive! They look amazing when dropped I took a pic of me backed up an incline that gave me that look. The only issue I think would be if I got a flat or anything that needed me to replace just one of the wheels either front or rear because it might be harder to get than say a 245/295 size.

Special pic request..I would love to see how wide they look from this pic angle..is there a way you can take one like this that I did of my old LS460? I did this at dusk but if the sun was higher and less dim behind me..it would of lit the tires up a little with less shade in the pic

Sorry for the late reply Jitty but here you go its not the best its an iPhone pic there always a bad shadow that doesn't show the wheels well and Im a horrible photographer. But if you save the picture when you zoom in on your desktop or phone you get a much better and detailed view.

Lol..ok man. Thanks. If the car was outside and the sun was at your back and camera nearly on the ground. .it would capture it pretty good. But I appreciate ya though. I was going to buy em but my Continental DWS tread is holding up ridiculously well and the 245s have not been an issue at all..but I b am def doing 255/305 combo when its time

Thats my trunk set up I removed the spare, had an amp rack made, and the grey "pipe bomb" is my TMPS bomb so I dont get lights all over my dash about a sensor missing.

L7 12" in the side of my tiny hybrid trunk... Still have to get a false floor made and rerun those wires since removing the spare causes my speaker to fall into the hole I have it suspended by wires all ghetto at the moment but soon I'll have it done.

Also to stay with the today's fashion All Gold Everything

Not sure why you need a TPMS bomb...why not just get the sensors in the wheels? One thing I learned over time is the TPMS warnings for low pressure can save you from a needless blowout if it drops too low. Also save your wheel. I'm sure those wheels can take the TPMS sensor right?

Wait, is this gold stuff a photoshop or did you really do that?
