Question I want to upgrade my 99 LS 400 wheels/rims, any suggestions?

Im trying to keep it stock as possible because I had bad experiences with after market rims, I was thinking about getting the new ls 400 rims but which ones would fit perfect on my 99 ls400?

You do have the newest ls400 wheels on the car currently. You probably mean newer LS430 wheels. Anyways, you should go with the 06+ gs430 18s. I had those on my 00LS for a week. Looks a whole lot better than those ugly 16s. You can try to look for the LS430 18s but its kinda rare.

definitely go with a 5 spoke style, looks by far the best on the LS....I just ordered the 18" LS430s, to me those are the best because of the width of the spokes

06+ GS wheels should fit fine.
'98-05 GS wheels will not.

18x8 +38 front
18x9 +45 rear

these specs should fit? I am looking for some AME Shallens
Too many wheel choices...can't decide on one! But don't want to cut or pull fenders.

Is that the reason you want to stick with OEM Lexus wheels?
