i didnt chime in at first because I didnt think they would look very nice, but seeing them on the car now they look really clean, like a stock look but slightly upgraded.

nice

Looks good! I previously had 18" OEM replicas from OEwheels on my old LS430 and never had any issues with them. I am going to buy another set for my new LS430 as soon as they get them back in stock. I wish I took them off my old LS430 before I sold the car.

You can have the mounting face milled to take off a couple millimeters but not much more than that, I'd say 3mm tops. For my 20" wheels I had my rears done at the factory before they sent them to me, took off 2mm to make sure they'd clear the fender lip.

The wheels look great! Why do you want to bring the wheels into the well more? Are you having any kind of rubbing issues?

The offset is about 10mm less than the Lexus stock wheels. They fit fine now but you can tell by looking especially at the front that the wheel sticks out a little farther than the stock wheels. They do not rub or stick out beyond the well but I wouldn't mind them being moved in a little. If not it's ok it's not a big deal.

Are you able to post some more pics? The LS430 I'm looking into has aftermarket wheels. Looking at these and I like a lot!
