They may be integral with the headlight assembly. Many of the ones on eBay are from auto recycler yards, so you could try asking them. Or contact these folks who are a large Lexus recycler in CA. ...

Have you run your VIN through CarFax or AutoCheck? I wonder if it is a totaled or flood car with a wiped title. Where did you find this vehicle? You have not provided the year and mileage.

255/50/19 is the same diameter as stock and a bit wider and will easily fit those 8 inch or 8.5 inch wider wheels. I plan to get that size next time when I get new wheels.

I thought the bumper shield/whiplash cover was less prominent, and looked much better, than the round metal bar. It does not have a step, which we do not need.
