Where did you get the adjustable lowers? I just did a fixed one yesterday and negative camber was reduced by 1.0 degree.

Sweet! I've been following this thread for a similar product http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls43...djustment.html, but you actually have working pieces. Your friend may have a bit of a business opportunity here as there don't appear to be any adjustable arms presently available on the market. Shoulda come like this from the factory.

AZCAMBER is my buddy that made them. They are stock arms that he modifies with adjusters.

Default Aaarrgghh!!!

SO everyone is certain MRR HR3 and HR2 will fit. Found a good deal on a website, then called. Guy says hes certain they wont fit and his website is incorrect. Said the only wheel he knows will definitely fit are the LUMARAI Morro. Ive tried searching for them over and over again here but search seems not to be working. Anyone know these wheels? Pics? Any info?

These are supposed to be made specifically for LS w/ 60.1 bore and clearance for BBK. I believe the 19x9.5" 44offset wil fit w/o modification. I think the 20x10" 37offset may need the rear fender rolled.
Have you taken a look at the rear well fender lip? It is pretty wide/deep. If you want to get anywhere near even sort of flush it looks like this has to be rolled. I too was looking for a set of wheels to add w/o modification, but now after looking at the fender lip I am resigned to rolling. The rent a roller is coming via FedEx.

I thought the MRRs were supposed to be pretty conservative fit and would clear the BBK. Maybe a call to D2 Auto could confirm fitment w/o modifications.

PS. Hey Muti007, I feel for you in your apparently frustrating search for wheels. On my first set of 18s I got dose of BBK non-clearance. I was pretty pissed that I had to run 15mm spacers just to clear...but funny thing is that w/ this I got my first experiance of sitting kind of flush and damn if I've really grown to like it. Hang in there in your search for the wheels you like.

Thanks man.

The Lumarai come in 20 by 10 and 20 by 8.5. Im actually looking for a square setup with no mods, so am looking at the 8.5 all around and think theyre a 37 offset. From what I can tell, theyre designed very specifically for our cars and should be a perfect fit, but damned if I havent heard similar before lol.

This is why I started this thread in the hopes of making this easier on other folks in the future. Ive never had a car before with these issues, figured a thread to help the community would be a good thing.

Very nice. Those MRRs are some of my favorite lookin' wheels for the LS. Wish the HR3s came in 19". I applaud your restraint for not going staggered. Around these parts (forum) regular setup seems unique.

Thanks man. Wasnt looking for a staggered setup, wanted to maintain the handling as well as be able to rotate. Was also worried Id have to lower the car, but it sits perfectly. I posted a few more pics in the sticky of the LS430 pics thread.

I love them!

Toyo Proxes 4, 245-35-20s. Im running them at 35 psi. I havent put that many miles on the setup yet as I just got them today, but I can honestly say, much to my surprise, that the ride is all but unaffected. I can barely even tell a difference. Just as plush, quiet and serene as always. Im frankly shocked by that, especially since I went from the stock 225-55-17s to 20s.
