Default Pictures of my 2013 GS350 on Strasse forged wheels. take a look.

Slowly but surely, I will post more pictures.

I was eager to post this one.

And now I can go to bed.

Be well!

Wheels:
Strasse Forged S5
20 x 9 inch front 42 offset
20 x 10.5 inch rear 50 offset
Brushed Aluminum Centers, Polished Lips, Brushed Aluminum Inner Barrels, Hidden Hardware Option

Tires:
Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport.
245/35 front
285/30 rear

Lowered on:
Megan EZ street coilovers.
Not as the kit comes out of the box. The rear springs were changed to 220mm as apposed to the 200mm rear springs that come with the kit.
Reason for swapping rear springs: The kit out of the box, was installed and sat too low for my taste even at max height for the rear. The great guys at Megan took the time to figure a solution for me. The longer springs allowed for 20mm more upward adjustability. Just what I needed.
The front had plenty of upward range and did not need to be changed as they were already 220mm springs.

The ride is fantastic. Definitely a difference from stock, but that is to be expected as I the car is now lowered and on 20 inch wheels. It is comfortable though.

I do not have too many more pics as of yet, but I will definitely throw some of my phone pics up tonight.

Strasse has talked to me about arranging a proper shoot. Hopefully, we will be seeing those shots soon.

I will update the original post with all other details tonight as well.

Cheers!
