Default Let me summarize

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!
Thank you for the compliment. I am riding stock height, no springs, no shocks (yet) I am anxiously awaiting springs. Oh C'mon Tanabe....

I went 20x9 all around with a +40 offset.
When this is lowered the tires should tuck under the body just fine No fender roll. Just looking forward to cruzing low & slow. But sporty and smashing @ the same time.

Oh yeah. Albert always treats me great when I go in there. He also has really high end cars at his shop all the time. I was suprised to hear he said that I was the first 2013 Gs350 he had seen in real life. Are you local zz?

Can someone do a proper photochop with the TE37?

It was a silver GS. very sporty and clean.
In the past 24 hours, i was lucky to find 3 used wheels. 2 fronts and 1 rear.
going to hunt for 1 rear or will cough up the money for a new one through Sewell.

I notice you have a 2nd gen. These will go on my 2nd gen graphite gray GS300

Default extra space?

Just got my 2013 GS Luxury package. I actually got the dealer to swap out my old "20's from my 2006 GS 430 to my new ride. On my old car the wheels filled up the entire wheel well. I notice that these same wheels on my new car that i can see a little space. makes me think we might be able to get "22's on here? I've checked tirerack and discout tire's websites to see if i can picture wheels on this new body style but our car hasnt showed up on these websites yet.
