Default LS400 rim fitment question

Anybody know if a 18x8.5 +43 super low disk with a 225/45/18 tire will fit a first gen LS400?
Thanks

You'll probably hit the caliper on the front....

With a super low, you will most likely hit. Lexus cars don't have the best setup for big lips (low disk) on the front. ...

Rominl...sorta...not completely...
