Default Wheel and offset question....AGAIN

Hello.

Im about to buy wheels for my Lexus and i have read alot about offset and tire size here, but i think there is some many different opinions.

So, heres what im thinking:

Front= 8,5x20. Offset: 35 Tires: 245/30-20
Rear= 10x20 Offset: 35 Tires: 285/25-20

Ive seen a car here that had the same tiresize and wheelsize, but he dident know what kind of offset he had. So my consern is that the wheels might rub the fender.

I will drop the car with Eibach Pro Kit.

Can anyone tell me if this is going to work?

do you really need 245 and 285? i can tell you those tires will look HORRIBLE and the 30 and 25 series will make your car rides like garbage!

The wheels that im buying dosent exist in 10,5"

And 255/35-20 and 265/35-20 isnt alowed But 225/30-20 is.

So maybe this is best:

8,5x20 with 225/30-20
10x20 with 255/30-20

Oh, this is so hard :P

Tyres look much better in your latest post (in your first post there is simply too much tyre)...but i personally think that 255 tyre on a 10 inch is too much stretch. I would prefer 265 if possible. Front looks good to me.

those will be pretty flush. no poke. if you dont want to roll your fenders, run 225/35 front and 245/35 rear. if you roll your fenders, you can run a wider tire but still i personally would roll all 4 fenders AND run the tire set up above.

Default Will these wheels fit?

I'm going to be selling my G35 and joining the lexus family pretty soon, and was wondering if my aftermarket wheels from the G would fit ok on the lex? they are staggered 20's and the tires are as follows:

Front 245/35/20
Rear 275/30/20

I'm not even sure about the bolt pattern if lexus and infinity are the same or what kind of offset is ideal. if anyone is an expert in this area please let me know!

im no expert but I have heard/seen people bolting up G wheels on the sedans. Along with that, from what I have read on the forums, with those tire sizes you will rub. someone correct me if im wrong.

bolt patterns are the same, but the G35 hub size is 66.1 vs. 60.1 for the 2is.

can't comment on the tire size or offsets, though.
