Default Will these wheels fit?

Hello, it's my first time posting here so i hope that my thread is in the right category. if not i would appreciate that a moderator/admin redirects me to the right thread!

So, i want to buy a set of wheels to my 1993 LS400, and i've found a design that i like. but i don't know if they'll fit properly.

The rims in question are dimensioned as follows:

Front:

8.5x20 ET: 35.

Rear:

10x20 ET: 35.

what tire dimensions do i wish to have and am i in need of spacers for a proper fitment?

( I'm going to use a 3rd party controller for the air suspension so that i can lower the car while standing still so i want the wheels to line up well to the fender when it's lowered)

Thanks!

Welcome to Club Lexus.

Wheel fitment is how much are you willing to spend to make more aggressive wheels fit the body. On conservative fitments this is less an issue and it also relates to how low you want the car to sit when driving and parking height. If you are after that flush fitment when parking it is going to be poking while driving. You can be flush while driving.

We've discussed wheels on many cars and there are some current threads to reference. In a search use "wheel fitment".

Thanks! yeah i've been looking a lot at this thread: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls40...eel-setup.html and it helps a lot to see different configurations on the same car, i want to spare my bags so i'll go for a bit more poke when driving and as flush as it gets when parked, i'm considering rolling my fenders to get the rim as close to the fender as possible! =)
