Hmmm... well, without knowing anything about the wheels (width/offset) or the tires, we can't do anything for you when it comes to offering advice.

You may want to look into the Wheel Size & Offset thread or better yet the Dub Style sub-forum as most people here don't run anything larger than 20s.

Yeah...should I go with another pattern? I thought that the spacers alone would do but studs weren't long enough...I see some places online you can order the spacers/adapters with pre-installed studs?...Just lookin' for a place that has the pre-installed studs and want to be sure I'm getting the correct adapters/spacers for the 22's...


Thanks...

The 745 has a 5x120 bolt pattern and the Lexus has a 114.3 bolt pattern you're going to need adapters. Adapters will push the wheels out. But I'm 90% sure the wheels will stick out too far because the 745 has a low offset and the GS has a mid to high offset.

If you tried to make it work, you'd need smaller tires. Like a 235/30/22
