Thanks man. I haven't removed them since i put them on but should because i get a bit of vibration due to the lack of hub rings. ModInJapan said they have contacted Rays for a solution. I will keep you posted when there is a solution. How are your wheels coming along?

Do you need hubcentric rings with the Lexus? If so, who makes them? My wheels wonít be stateside til December and I donít know what day either.

in my opinion, its needed..you should ask your vendor to include them. Hub sizing for the GX is 106 and the Volks are 112 so there is a size variance there.

I like that set up, was wondering if you did a +30 offset, then spacers any reason you didn't just do a 0 offset or something along those lines and no spacers? Also I really want the 275/55 set up, can you fit it without much rubbing on stock? I don't mind to trim a little but don't want to lift. seems like theres a lot of 285/50-20 but wanted to check how the 275/55 fits? thanks. Also how much spacer? essentially a +30 with .75-1" spacer is close to a 0 offset or -10 i think. Anyhow nice look. Thanks, Chris

You asking me? I have 18" wheels so no idea about 20". I didn't want to run spacers and prefer the 0 offset for concaveness of the face.

Default Tire size?

I have my eye on some Mickey Thompson wheels size 20x9 with an 18mm offset. I would like to pair the wheels with some nitto Terra grappler G2 tires. Im wondering if I can run 265/50/20 or 265/60/20?

I dont want want to use spacers and I donít want any rubbing but also want to fill the wheel well as best as I can.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks to this thread, I purchased a set of 20" Black Rhino Traverse wheels for my wife's newly purchased GX. Does anyone know the size of the center caps or where I could purchase blank black center caps or black Lexus center caps that would fit?

Default 20í XD Addict



just put 20í XDs on my 16í. I went with Nitto Terra Grapplers in size 265/50/20 and I really like the look and the feel. Obviously the ride isnít as plush but I wanted it to be a bit more rigid. I probably could have gone with a taller tire but I absolutely didnít want any rubbing. It is a Lexus after all....

Default Falken Wildpeak AT3 - 265 / 65 R18

265 / 65 R18 Falken Wildpeak AT3
Stock Lexus 18" Rims, powder coated gloss black with center caps painted gloss black
No rubbing issues, no spacers, no lift, no wheel well changes
Fills the wheel well nicely while retaining close to stock handling
I personally like it better with a bit firmer of a ride, less floaty feeling
Noise change is not noticeable (always ran BFG KO2 on previous subs and trucks, been very happy with those, also happy with the Falken so far and a 55k warranty so well see)
Went back and forth with sizing, offsets, backspacing etc and my head was about to explode....kept it simple and happy I did
GX is brand new so i can get more creative down the road with lift, sliders, rims etc when she's a little older and ready to get beat on off road

Looks really nice! How much room you have between the tire and the inner runningboard bolt in the front with the wheel turning?

dont have a measurement but apparently enough. I know one size up at 275/65r18 will rub

hereís a visual

Drivers side wheel well at runninboard connection , partial turn the closest itd get to the screw. Full turn it tucks in with more room in the wheel

Passenger front corner (grill to right) full left turn

Default F-Sport Wheels

Anyone running F-Sport Wheels? If so I'd love to see some pictures. I have F-Sport wheels on a GX that I'm having shipped to me. I want to wrap some new rubber around them so I'd like to see what others are running.
