Thats good then. I checked the fitment on the ikperformance site andit says it fits the the lexus. Just a bit concerned about the tire depth.

That's not right, they won't fit at all. Different PCD. The GS's have 5x114.3 which is not all that common.

You can get Rivera RV177's in the right PCD, however, as these are off an Audi, so the stud pattern of these is 5x112.

Dam.  So much for a bargain. Thank you for the heads up. Ill keep a better look out next time on PCD for my car.

Thanks guys.

You need to consider 3 points for replacement wheels the stud pattern or PCD, the offset i.e. how far the wheels stick out or in and the centre bore i.e. how big is the hole in the middle of the wheel. If the bore is too small the wheels may not fit on the hub, if too big it can be reduced to the correct size (normally 60.1mm on a Lexus) using spigot rings.

Another factor is to make sure the wheels will clear the brake calipers on the front.

Here's a interesting/depressing pic showing compatible alternatives.... of which there aren't many.

I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to wheel fitment, so my bad if I'm slow at this.

I assume 5x114.3 is the correct fitment on my car?

I want my car to fit exactly like this (I know the car has a wide body):

http://www.japanracingwheels.cz/project/lexus-gs-jr20-20x10-20x11-gal-72157675813880696/

But with these wheels in gunmetal in 20" wheels.

Just need some guidance on choosing the right ones.

Both of those sets of wheels will fit, but there are somethings further to consider if you intend going to 20 inch wheels that are also wider than standard 8J  (8 inches). 

Your rim to road clearance will be reduced by 1 inch, and unless you go to wider tyres the tyres will be stretched on the rims making the rims very susceptible to kerbing even on low kerbs or even the edges of potholes. The GS wheels are easy to kerb as they are, and wheels with spokes that run out over the rim lip are asking for trouble particularly when there is no tyre side wall to help with feeling the kerbs.

The 20 inch rims with lower sidewall tyres will also make for a hard ride, and increase road noise. Of course the decision is yours, but do consider the downsides.

John.

Thanks John. I assume your talking about low profile tyres? Im aware of the pros and cons. I used to own an ibiza sport back in the day with low profile tyres, so i completely understand what you mean.

I could always revert back to my stock alloy wheels and tyres if its not manageable.

Ill wait it out until black Friday and see if theres any good deals on the wheels. Any good tyres to recommend going with the Riviera wheels?
