Default My wheel setup

Pretty darn conservative at stock height.
20X 8.5 front - 235/35 ZR20 TOYO Proxes
20 X 10.0 rear - 275/30 ZR20 TOYO Proxes

Will go with 285/30 ZR20 on rear when time to replace tires.

Default 20" Ultraleggera HLT on stock height Black on Black

Hello,

I have been looking at wheels for a couple of weeks now and I think I have narrowed it down to the 20" O.Z. Racing Ultraleggera HLT's in matte black from tire rack. They only come in one fitment for our bolt pattern:


8.50 x 20 ET40
10.00 x 20 ET35

Will this fitment work well at stock height?
Do i need spacers?
Recommended Tire Sizes?

Thank you for your help.

The rear looks good, The front is very very conservative....might need a 10~15mm spacer!!
8.50 x 20 ET40 is like pushing 11mm (7/16 inch) outer then stock

NICE!! i love those wheels.. not only because I have them on my GS but i love them. lol.. if you decide to ever sell them then please let me know! Would love to have these for my SC as well. do you have any side shots of the car from the back to show the wheel fitment with the fender.. want to see how far the wheel sticks out if any.

VIPNiss,

I love them too! I don't think I'll be selling them anytime soon since I just got them. Also, I'm in Korea so shipping will be too much of a hassle.

I do not have any other pic at this time but I sure will post more with future mods. Wheels do not stick out at all, it's sits right on the fender. So, I guess you can go with little more aggressive offset if you are planning on pulling out your fenders. mine is just rolled as stated above. I love your GS

Default Custom Wheel Spacers Hub Centric Made to order on Ebay

Has anyone tried these out?

They will make your spacers to order: ID/OD Hub Diameter, Thickness, etc.

It looks like a good solution at $87 per PAIR of spacers shipped.

Cool My Wheel Offset Info

Here ya go....

Front Wheels: Size 20" x 8.5" , Lip Size 2 1/4" , Bolt Pattern 5 x 114.3 , Offset 40

Rear Wheels: Size 20" x 10" , Lip Size 4" , Bolt Pattern 5 x 114.3 , Offset 45

Front Tires: Toyo Proxes T1R 245/35 ZR20 95Y

Rear Tires: Toyo Proxes T1R 275/30 ZR20 97Y (will go with a T1R 285/30 ZR20 97Y for a little more side wall) Potholes are brutal to band aids. :-(

I know this is conservative but the plans are to lower the car with coil-overs 1" in front and 1/2" to 2" in the back along with removing the heavy stock muffler for some Magnaflow bullets from the resonators back.

I did not want to have issues with the wheel housing lip(s) rubbing the wheels/tires after lowering.

An SC430 project car by WheelExperts Automotive group was my inspiration to do a tasteful executive style build over time:
