Ted!!

Wassup bro? You got them Symbolics yet? Post pics when you can.

Yah....those will be perfect for the rears....I got 19x9.5 w/ +40 offset back there....pretty much flushed with the fender.

PM a member named Lonely Toothbrush, he has posted pics of a GS with Brabus V's in 20", and I'm almost positive that those wheels only come in one width, which is 9.5". I'll see if I can find the pic, that thing was slamdanced too!

Found it! The only thing is, the car is running a 44 offset in the front and a 40 offset in the rear, so like PHML said the 40 up front may pose a problem

Heres a quote from his post
Quote:
Brabus Monoblock V's 20x9.5 with NO TIRES. In GREAT condition, just got them re-chrome so they're basically brand new. All four of them have been re-drilled to PCD 114.3mm with four custom hubcentric rings. Offsets are F:+44/R:+40. Asking $2500 plus shipping. They fit SC430, First & second gen GS300, GS400, GS430, and all LS models

9.5+40 in the front, my bet is it will rub pretty bad. even if it fits it will be so marginal. with 9.5, when you do full hard lock turns it will rub the sides of the wheel well like crazy

It'll be 20X8.5 w/ 40 offset in front and 20X9.5 offset in rear.

2.5" lip in front and 3.5 lip in rear.

I should have the Symbolics within one month - need to get car ready for some upcoming shows.

Peace Fellas,

Ted
