Hi there, i've just picked up a loaded 2013 gs350 awd (even has the night vision!?) it's a great ride, just not sure what to do with the wheel gap. i have the 18" 235/45 r18 tires/wheels. it also has the variable ride suspension. If i'd like to put a priority in maintaining a good ride...what are do you folks recommend - lowering (i do drive in snow occasionally though i have a 4wd truck if it's bad), or 19" rims with slighlty over sized tires? or spacers? (i have an es350 that i pushed out 15/20mm and it looks great...and it maintained the soft ride...
in the past i've kept the rims, upsized the tires slightly and lowered the vehicle for a nice combination of small bump compliance, but a sporty ride due to the springs.
i also don't ideally want to go with a larger wheel...it'll hurt acceleration and mileage first and foremost... It looks like i'll go the route of the Tanabe springs as they seem to offer the right amount of drop and are just slightly stiffer than stock. Coming from an es350 the GS already feels good!
so for now i'll use the stock rims i think and then maybe in the spring get some F-sport ones.
