It actually looks pretty good. The wheel design flows with the fender emblem. What emblem is that?

If you like them I'd say go for it, but I prefer the lip look.

SportDesign emblem. Came like that from Factory.

Yes, this is a full face wheel compared to Lip wheels.

Glad to see you went with a smaller size that what you originally planed. Suits it much better

The proper size you should be running without having any problems is 225/30R20
So what exactly is sidewall? Is this needed? I am not the best driver in the world and happen to get a lot of curb checks, I am working on being less aggressive now that I have a Lexus and not a truck lol. Will having a higher Sidewall prevent me from dinging any wheels I may get?

I think you need at least 65 series sidewall to clear most curbs. The thicker the sidewall, the thicker the tire. If you are rolling on 20's, you only have about a inch or so sidewall, so this would not help you in anyway.
