There was a certain section of my commute home that my LS use to downshift. It would only downshift after hitting the brakes though. Your car should not downshift if you are off the brakes.

Lexus LS 16's fit just fine. Mine were off a LS400. Disk height I think is the correct term for clearance for the front caliper.
