Default LS400 owners post your wheel setup

I noticed that the IS forum has a nice library of configurations, and thought the LS4 community could use one too. (I would post, but I'm new here and still have stock setup...certainly looking to upgrade though!)


Please fill in the following information:


Lexus LS model and year:
Wheel Make & Model:
Wheel Size (diameter and width):
Wheel Offset Front:
Wheel Offset Rear:

Tire Make and Model:
Tire Size Front:
Tire Size Rear:

Suspension mods:
Amount of drop:

Description of wheel gap, fender flushness, rubbing, aesthetics, and other comments and problems if any (clear pictures to support description would help greatly):

Can we get some pictures of 1" drops?
I purchased a set of eibach pro's for my 91 and I would just like to know what I'm getting into. Thanks

Amazing what a positive difference those wheels and drop make to the appearance of the car--without any other adornments, body mods, etc.

Spacers to get them right up to the edge of the fender?

nah no spacers... i guess the width and offset was just right for that car cause i had to roll the fenders all the way around so it wouldn't eat the tire edge.
