Need help on tires + wheels for an F-SPORT conversion
I own a Lexus GS 250 (sounds strange but its not from the US market) and I'm trying to do the conversion to F-SPORT. So I found an OEM bumper for a with the rear lip spoiler for a bargain price.
The F-SPORT wheels and tires are whats giving me the headache now as the staggered OEM wheels are very expensive compared to the aftermarket replicas, the tires too.
My 4GS came with bridgestones on it (18" rim). What I found was that only 4 types of tires come in the sizes of 265/35 R19 and 235/40 R19 those are :
Continental ContiSport Contact 3
Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Dunlop SP Sport Maxx
I'm not thinking of the bridgestone at all coz its giving me nightmares (NOISY and uncomfortable) but the handling is close to perfect, Conts and Michelins are the best choice but expensive. I don't know about the Dunlops but its the closest for me to choose and thats for the price tag factor.
What does anyone else suggest ?

there should be some members here willing to part with their OEM wheels and tires, seems as though most 4GS owners are going aftermarket wheel and tire set ups. so if you ask real nice i'm sure someone will chime in and cut a deal with you. Dunlops are good tires, had the Dunlop sport maxx on my LS, now i have the Continentals.
