Good thing you already have those Ichiba spacers on your car. Can't wait to see what they look like on the 2GS in person.

Yes. Most definately. Waiting for the tires right now. JSpec (CL Moderator) from America's Tires hooked me up on a set. They should arrive in a few days.

Yeah, i am not sure if i should use 15MM and 20MM spacers for these. I am afraid it might rub.

With the spacers, the new offset should be +20MM front and +15MM rear.

I might consider using spacers for the rear only. If so, then it will be +35MM front and +20MM rear. I am still contemplating.

I don't want to be the one to break it to you but 245/35R20 is a ridiculous size to put on a GS. That is over 5% larger in diameter. First off 245 will crown like hell on a 7.5" rim and with having a 35% sidewall it makes the tire over 1" taller in height and will rub every turn you make and no to mention through your speedometer completely off. The proper size you should be running without having any problems is 225/30R20

running 235-30-20. Yes 225-30-20 would fit better but i decided to go with 235's anyways. Rest assured based on the OE size 235-45-17, the rolling diameter on the 235-30-20 is almost perfect. Also, no rubs so far.

thanks! Yes, these wheels do fit and feel great. So smooth.

I'm looking to lower the car a little more.... trying to tuck the tires.

Looks pretty good Jimmy. I'll pray you don't bend/crack your wheels with such little sidewall. 87 and 101 are pretty bad when I drive there.
