When it comes to 17's what's the general rule for 17X8's is +30 to low with a 225/55/17 tire?

235/45/17 would be a better tire size, since that's what the OEM size is (with the OEM 17x8 wheel).

Thank you for your help. Would this be a staggered look? I def. would like to go with a staggered look, but one in which would not cause clearance issues. Another guy has told me that the initial set up that I was thinking of would be not be staggered and would have pretty much the same lip. So a +35 rear instead of +40 sounds good...just not sure on the front now.

Those wheels should give you a staggered look, not unless the wheel manufacturer made the same lip size for the same wheels.

Just to verify, is there anyone who personally has 20x10 with an offset of 35-40 on the rear of their GS that knows from experiance that the wheel fits on with absolute no need for modifications? I just want to be 100% sure before I order my wheels in this size that they will fit correctly. Thanks again for everyones help.

If you want to be totally safe, follow the specs of the 1st post. Just because the lower the offset, other variable can affect fitment. Like tire brand and size, amount of drop and OEM suspension settings. Remember we are talking MM here, and any one of those things that I mentioned can affect the outcome. If you are not prepared to do any type of fender modification, just take the safe route and run conservative.

I had 20x10 +38 with mild lowering (1 finger in the rear) with 275/30 Nittos. I had to shave. I don't have alignment specs but with what I had at the time, the wheels did not clear.

As with everything, there are multiple factors involved when fitting wheels.

new to the gs family, I recently acquired an 02 gs300.

looking at wheels already, I plan on going w/ tein ss or flex coils, wondering if this offset will be ok for the tucked/flush look, or if spacers will be necessary.

stagged axis mod 20x9 +37mm and 20x10 +38mm

I don't want it to be super agressive and stick out, but I would like a clean flush look.

I'll end up purchasing a rear camber kit, and would rather shave the fenders vs rolling.

any advice? it would be appreciated.

what do you think about 19X9+33 and 19X10+41, do you think I would have to shave or roll the front? the rears should fit w/out I would think

Rears are fine fronts would probably require a roll depending on the drop.
