Default Vossen/Works Wheels

Hello everyone. I was wondering what would be the best set of tires for my 2019 Lexus RCF without rubbing. I have a set of Vossen VWS 3 wheels that are: Front-20x9.5 and Rear-20x11

Are you lowered? That can make a difference. I'm lowered on Penske coils (26" at each center fender well) running 265/30 and 295/30 Michelin 4S. I scrubbed slightly at high speeds in the front so i made a few trims on the liner and all good.

I originally ran 255/30 and 285/30 but hated the stretched look on the 9.5's and 11's. There was no rub though, just depends on the look you want and alterations you want to make.

Just adding a couple of pictures of my new wheels. I went with the TSW Bathurst in Gun Metal Grey. They are 19" since I did not want to increase rotational mass. They are 19 x 10.5 and 19 x 9 respectively. They weight saving over the stock wheels is about 45 pounds all the way around. I think that is quite good actually. The dealer had a special on wheels and I was able to save some good coin as well. I am also liking the fact that they are easier to clean.

Nice choice! Have you noticed the weight reduction at the wheel in terms of performance?

Also, have you considered lighter calipers? The RCF has some nice big brakes and the dark ones seem to get lost behind darker wheels IMO.

Yes on the weight reduction it really seems to make a difference from a dead start and I so agree with the Caliper comment. I was sooo considering the chrome wheels and it was back and forth. The chrome (silver) wheels lost out in regards to me being lazy and not wanting to clean the wheels all the time. Eventually I would like to replace them, although it isn't really spinning so rotational mass is not that much of a difference, but they sure disappear in there. What I would really like is carbon brakes. Now there is a weight reduction. The front wheels weigh 9 lbs less than stock and the rear weigh 12 lbs less than stock. So that is 42 lbs total.

I actually weighed them each on a scale. Mind you it was a bathroom scale. LOL

But I think we are all digressing, I think jumpmaster was talking tires. All I know are the Michelins that came on the car. I am also wondering what to stick in there when they are worn.
I hate the fact that there is no spare (obviously that makes sense since there is 2 different sizes under there), so I am considering runflats eventually. Oh boy I am sure this will start some criticism.
So I am just as jumpmaster kind of curious about what to get..

30 in the front and 27 in the back I am not super good with this just went to the TSW website and that is what it showed for the 9.5 and 10.5 19" wheels for the Bathurst
