Default 2013 GS350 18" wheels on a 07' ES350?

Does anyone run these same spec wheels on their ES? I want them to ride and sit in wheel well about the same as the stocks. They are for my dads car and dont wont to cause any issues. I believe that the GS wheels are the regular split 5 spokes off the NON Fsport models. 18x8 45mm offset with 235/45 tires. The stock size should be 17x7 with a 45mm offset running 215/55 rubber. From my research the two sets are very similar in size with only a +.1mm height diff and +.4mm width diff going up to 18s. I think that the tires will make the most difference when it comes to ride quality. It seems that most ppl who put the last gen gs wheels on their ES used the harder riding tires from the prev gen. and that caused most of the problems. The seller will let me test fit em and drive em but hes in brooklyn and well those who know bk its not the best place to test drive anything haha.. I think they will be fine but ill throw this out there for the "experts" Thanks in advance yall..

Can't comment on exact fitment, but ride should be fine with 45 profile tires on that width. I run 225/45/R18 Michelin Primacy MXM4. Definitely use TireRack's reviews because you are correct in stating what a big factor the tread type, sidewall, compound, and design are.
