I'm gonna go CJITTY on you and ask if you've seen this thread yet...http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls46...ls-thread.html

Most people are running 22x9 22x10.5 rims with the tire sizes of 245/30/22F and 295/25/22R being the most common... My tire of choice along with a lot of others is the Conti DWS 540 treadwear etc. there are other tire brands that are cheaper though...I'm sure jitty will chime in...

LOL! Adam you beat me to it, I agree read thru that thread a lot good info is in there. Adam is right about the common wheel widths & tire size, I went with 255/30/22 for the fronts running Kumho Ecsta ASX KU21's, they are quiet and ride great!

If you are not dropped I would go with the Conti DWS. If you are dropped then go with a Pirelli or something a bit cheaper. In the end I had a really bad alignment with my Contis at stock height and they went in less than 17k . MAke sure your alignment is good. The Continentals are not available in the 255/30 so you are stuck with a 245/30. Not bad looking but the 255 fills it in better and looks better on the rim. The 245/30 has a slight stretch to it on a 9-9.5" wide wheel

I usually run Michelin on everything but Michelin didn't have the rear size I wanted at the time but now they do so I'll be replacing my Vredesteins with Michelins.

245s are 10mm less wide and have a slightly shorter overall height compared to a 255.

245s have a load index typically around 92, which is too low for the weight of our cars and will wear faster and you need to maintain good pressure. 255s have a load rating around 95 which is an acceptable load rating and it has a good plus size matchup to the stock 235/50/18 tires.

I had to put 245s on because i wanted to use Continental DWS tires, but they do not make a 255 size..I initially had 265/30/22, but I ended up rubbing slightly on the front control arm and the outer fender..245s are 20mm less wide than the 265s. click my links in my signature below for in depth write ups for more information

Thats going to be stretched. Is your car slammed?? I would wait a bit longer before going with the Super Sports. They just started production 7 months ago and the sizes are limited.Give them another year and they will be like Pirelli or Falken where they pretty much make every imaginable size
