Please everyone, share your thoughts with me on this. Below is a pic of the wheels and description as is on the eBay site...
Why not get used OEM for cheaper?

They're out there...trust me.

--- I like new bro. But if I run across a set I'd definitely make the effort to buy Em. Almost close to none drive Lexus out here. So the odds of me running into someone with those wheels are very thin. I'm tryna run the same setup you have on your GS ☺☺ stock tho. Forever. Lol

OEM IS350 18" Wheels. Car needs a good drop though.

I actually like these wheels on a black GS, there classy but nothing too crazy, of course im biased because I have them too on my black 300, but is your car lowed at all? If not I would drop it a little bit and then you be good to go.

--- Looks GREAT bro. I'd keep it just AS IS. Really nice look on the car and compliments the car's color heavily. Post some interior pics!

--- Just leave it stock. Avoid all those suspension problems. That's just me. I see a stock car's beauty in its entirety. But do as you feel fit bro. Please post pics with the club ☺☺

Thanks guys! I did get the grill on eBay. Surprisingly, figment was pretty good too. I don't see that style grill often. I think a lip or something would compliment it well. Not sure yet

18" Tourmaline wheels.
From a 3rd Gen GS or maybe SC430, seller didn't know.

I've looked through this entire thread to see if I could find the wheels that are on my GS. I'm not even sure if they're OEM except for the Lexus center cap.

Anyway, these are they... 18s




BTW, if you haven't guessed, I'm new to Lexusdom so pardon my ignorance.

Just got these thru mail today.... the rims... They're OEM wheels from the 3GS models. And the Pirellis yesterday... They're 245 40 28s.. I'm super excited. Now I'm just waiting to get the Lexus center caps to mount them... super excited to finally get to see my GS430 with new wheels and tires. It deserves it. It's been nothing but rock hard steady driving for 3 years straight. All seasons long. No breaks. I'll post pics of the car before and after I get them mounted. Stay tuned CL!
