That will totally fit - given that I run 20x12.0" wheel with 295/25-20 on the rear under stock (trimmed) rear quarters. On yours, I'd shoot for 20x12.5 or 20x13.0 with 305/25-20. All day, every day.....

Price dropped to $2000 wheels and tires / picked-up locally.

There are TPMS present in these wheels, but I do not know if the batteries work.

I'm a long time CL'er who has had many sets of wheels on my 2GS over the decade I have owned it. I've sold all of those previous sets Club Lexus members and I suspect all of them would have good...

I won't promise that the lower ball joints will cure the vibration, but definitely replace these ASAP.

255/35-20 + 295/30-20 is really quite a bit too tall for the 2GS.
You can make it work, but expect the front tires to rub the fender liners when reversing with the wheels turned. It hits enough that...

Unless you have mondo-tall profile tires, it's basically impossible to have the tire hit the control arm - they move up and down as a unit. With a short tire like your 235/40-18 my guess is that you...

Did you really say "fiance" and "my first car" in the midst of all that?
