Question Weds Wheels on a 2008 GS350 AWD.. Will it work?

I've read countless threads on this subject and forgive me for not knowing how to truly use the tire calculator..

So here's the scenario:

2008 GS 350 AWD..

Wheels: Weds Kranze LXZ
20x9 +30 Front
20x 10+35 Rear



The car is all stock right now, body wise. The million dollar question is:

1. What size tires do I need to NOT upset the AWD system in the car?


Secondary question is:
2. Will this work at all?

3. Will I have to pull or roll fenders to get this to work?

****Backstory. I committed to buying these wheels because I got a good price, I liked them and they came off of another GS, but a RWD GS.*****

Tire wise, what do I need to do?

I have AWD, that same spec on my rims and went with 225/35 and 255/30. You will need to roll or shave fenders.
I've previously ran 225/35 and 265/ 30 also, depending on tire availability. Car is lowered about 2".

Do you have any pics? I'd love to see it? I also have BC Coilovers that I'm ordering to get those inches off the front of this thing.

These pics are with Conti DWS 225/35 and 265/30-20. I now roll TOYO 225/35 and 255/30, which are a bit stretch on a 10" wide rear. I would have stuck with Continentals but they discontinued the 265/30-20 size and dont offer 255/30-20. Good Luck!

That looks really clean. I like it. That's what I was wonderig right there. I can live with shaving and even rolling if need be. I just needed to know how they played out and id the AWD system agreed with it.

Cool man.. and good luck. The only thing that sucks is the vibration and wobbles thats typical with the AWD when lowering. I've had my car lowered and riding staggered tires for about 65K miles, no issues so far with transmission or AWD system
