Default Is my wheel combo good fitment for ls?

I need advice whether i should keep the tires I just got. I bought some wheels 20x9 and 20x10. The tires I bought were size 245/35/20 and 265/35/20. Is this ok? I dont want super stretch. Should i keep the tires or get wider? I got michelin super sports btw. I am also slightly lowered on coils to fill tire gap. Thanks

If the rims fit to your liking offset wise and you don't have clearance issues with those tire sizes, then I don't see any issue with those tires and your rim widths. They won't be stretched.

Depends what you call stretched. The 245 on the 9" wheel will have what I would consider as a mild stretch, and the 265 on the 10" will definitely be stretched to me. I have a 245/35 on an 8.5" wheel and it seems to be the perfect width, and a 285/30 on my rear 10" wheel. Previously I had a 275/30 in the back and it had a mild stretch to it. I wouldn't want the 265, but that's just me. I really don't like any "stretch" at all.

Depending on your offset up front and your ride height you may have rubbing issues. I ran Hankook 245/35/20 V12's on a 20x9 +23 wheel and it rubbed to the point that the car wasn't even drivable. My car was lowered but not crazy low.

The rears should be alright.

Well I test fit my front and rear rims and they poke out past my fenders. But when I measured the offsets front would be 20x9 +44 and rears are 20x10 +51. It doesnt make any sense Unless I measured offset wrong. The front have a 2.75 inch lip and rears are 4 inch lip. The offsets should be super conservative. My tires come in wednesday and I should have them on wednesday or thurday. I will take a picture for you guys to see.

If those are the offsets then they should fit fine but those are some big lips though.

What brand of tires will you be getting? Some seem to run wider than others. My old Hankooks ran quite a bit wide and rubbed like crazy while my same size Nittos were smaller and didn't rub.

If your car is at stock height and the wheels poke you should still be fine. I have 20/10.5 with a 45 offset in the rear of my 99 ls400 and when it was at stock height the rears poked out a lot but when lowered they tucked in nice.

Yeah those a big lips for me but probably not for the others on here lol. I got some michelin super sport tires. Hopefully they don't rub or I can get away with just a light roll.

Thanks. I will lower some more when I get my lip kit in. So maybe it will be flush when I do.

Rims should fit fine and hopefully you'll have no rub, I have 20x9.5(225/35) and 20x10.5(245/35) and I rub. I need some fender work to make it right (I also have camber/toe arms to install), you should have no problem depending on your offset with a 9/10 set up.

Well I recalculated my offset. I had measured back space the first time. My actual specs are 20x9 +38 and 20x10 +44. Tires are 245/35 and 265/35.
