Wheels help please.
 
About to buy a set of XO Wheels, New York, 22x9 +35

I have a 2009 ls460 AWD. From all my research I believe these will work, what to confirm!

Does anyone have them?? :D

Are these the ones that look exactly like CV3s?

Why not go staggered? 35 offset is def gonna looked sunken in on the rear. Have you looked at the wheel and tire sticky research thread? 3 of us LS600 owners have posts in there with pics and wheel specs and we all have AWD by default since they are 600s. If you do go 22x9 all around I would shoot for 25mm to 30mm offsets. Farming posted in that thread too and he had 22x9 with 30mm offsets and could of easily ran 5mm spacers to help reduce the sunken in look IMO. I have a 22x10.5" wide wheel 38mm offset with 305/25/22 tire and it fills up that fender perfectly. That 305 wide tire makes all the difference.

I believe it is the Havana's. The spokes look a little bit wider than the cv3s I think

Thank you, I understand many are running staggered on the AWD, but my only concern is that the car will be driven a lot, 30k miles this year at least. You don't think that many miles will be a problem with a staggered setup? Also, was trying to stay with a 30 tire over a 25 due to the amount of miles the car will be driven. Please advise :D

just had my tranny and transfer case checked, rotors resurfaced, new brakes... i am running a staggered set up on an AWD LS460 and everything checked out fine and i have 30K miles on this car in a year. oh and put new tires on, the tires were worn on outside on pass. and worn on the inside on driver side. my alignment was perfect, so the worn tires were due to the weight of the car and maybe the tire pressure.

You have an AWD?
What is your setup, wheels & tires? Thanks!

As suggested earlier, all of that is in the wheel and tire info thread, I urge you to look through all the posts which show setups for suspension, wheels and tires to show real world examples on what works for people

Here is his Syd's setup from that thread. http://www.clublexus.com/forums/7918196-post53.html
I know him personally and he is speaking the truth

Plus, keep in mind that 25 series or 30 series is merely the aspect ratio or percentage of overall width. So my 30 fronts have the same overall diameter as my 25 rears and same treadwear rating. I can get all 4 tires shipped to my house for $575 brand new and they are just as quiet as my $900 continental dws tires, so don't let that keep you from going staggered. I just had my tires balanced after nearly 10 months and they checked out great. I had some feathering on one but that was due to an alignment issue and if I need a new one sooner than the rest, it is only $92 shipped..not a big deal
