Never mind. It's stated in your first post.

What size is the tires, and how wide are the rims?

sounds nice, but need different perspectives of it..can you provide sound clips of:

1) parked revs after initial start up
2) parked revs after few minutes of driving
3) normal acceleration (normal mode)
4) medium acceleration, to 5k (normal mode)
5) hard acceleration, to redline (normal mode)
6) repeat 3-5 with sport or sport+ mode

yes i know i'm asking a lot but hey, as a community we're here to help each other right? besides, you're the first to get the exhaust--have fun, experiment, flaunt it. and we'll follow after hearing how it sounds.

Finally got a chance to record a high quality cold start-up! I'll be posting some videos under full acceleration for those waiting to hear this exhaust. So far, it sounds great and i hardly notice any drone!

Could you take a close up on the front tire edge? I want to see how a 225 tire sits on a 8.5" rim.

this is the closest shot i have to the front tire edge. ill try to take a closer shot next time. but i think i could easily fit 9" in the front. plenty of room with 8.5" of course assuming with the same +45 offset.

Thanks man. I already hear couple of people complaining about how subtle the exhaust is. But IMO it suits the Lexus perfect. Not too loud not too quiet
