Without a drop, none of these wheels look all that stunning. That wheel gap throws off the whole car when the GS has aftermarket rims, ESPECIALLY if the wheels have lips on them.

That's why the 5-Axis looks like money.

So, hurry up and drop those 4GS' ASAP, but don't slam it. Just drop it down like the 5-Axis car (that's a perfect drop), and then a lot more of these rims will be plausible.

IMO, drop with factory rims > aftermarket rims with no drop

I was able to transfer the TPMS from the OEM wheels. The next thing I'm asking "who do I gotta kill or sleep with" to get some drop springs?
Definitely springs or a navi hack. I'll keep the community posted. Thank you for the feedback. Went with Falken Azenis b.t.w. 245-40-20

Hahaha...yes, those springs are hard to get at this time. But, you have a killer car with the mean sounding exhaust already. I am still 100% stock and waiting patiently for my wheels/tires/springs/exhaust/intake...You got to make some more videos of your ride when you get a chance!!

Looks good! I like how the F-Sport wheels are lying on the ground with the pile of trash in front of your car

did you have to buy the shocks for the TRD springs to fit? Or dd the TRD spring set fit without having to buy the shocks? Also, it said (TRD) that buying the spring set comes with original Lexus foglamps and DRL. Did you get them? I've been wanting to order the TRD spring set but it seems that I would have to buy the shocks to install it which costs too much. Any feedback will be much appreciated. Nice ride, by the way!
Thanks!

What size and offset are your wheels? Will you have to roll your fenders once you lower it?

I really wish they had this design as official accessory wheels for the GS350 :

19-in (RWD) Forged Alloy Wheels
18-in (AWD) Forged Alloy Wheels

The aggressive styling and exclusive Dark Graphite finish of these 10-spoke F SPORT forged-aluminum alloy wheels [1] [2] [3] will draw attention. The lightweight forged aluminum alloy helps reduce unsprung weight, while the ultrastrong, hub-centric design limits vibration and decreases weight even further. They require spline-drive lug nuts, which are included in the available Wheel Installation Kit.

http://www.lexus.com/models/IS/f-spo...oy_wheels.html

This design is available for the 2011 GS350. Wonder why they don't make it available for the 2013 GS :

This light weight forged alloy wheel, exclusively designed in a dark graphite finish, includes a staggered fitment.

Front 19x8 Forged Wheel

Size: 19 x 8 inches
Bolt Pattern: 5-114.3
Offset: 40 mm
Weight 20.85 lbs

19 x 9 Forged Rear Wheel Wheel

Size: 19 x 9 inches
Bolt Pattern: 5-114.3
Offset: 40 mm
Weight 21.40 lbs
