#2190 of 3073 GS 430 Tires: Advan A10-B
May 06, 2005 (1:05 am)
I just bought a 2006 GS430 with G-spider wheels and Advan A10-B tires. Question is does anybody know anything about these tires? I know Advan is a Yokohama top brand racing tire, but unable to find the A10-B tire called out on their website or any other for that matter. I know the dealer installed the G-spider wheels and mounted tires themselves. Are these tires OEM for the Lexus GS series or are these special? Also, who is the manufacturer of the G-spider wheels?

LCDs can have subtle burn-in effects. I also find the bright display a distraction when driving, another reason to leave it off unless needed.

Were you able to sync up your phone book with the car as well?
#2194 of 3073 aftermarket wheels on GS300
May 06, 2005 (9:13 am)
Picking up my 06 GS tomorrow (black/grey). I have aftermarket 17 inch wheels I want to put on, curious if there are any issues with the tire pressure sensor- I dont mind not having it, but will I see an annoying light in the dash because its inop? any idea? the dealer is not helpful, he's encouraging me to keep the stock rims but I have aftermarkets from another car which would look awesome on the GS.
Thanks in advance
#2195 of 3073 Owners manual

Does anyone have the owners manual in a PDF file? If so - how did you get it?

BTW, the Liberty Sport 2WD would be well-equipped for $20k, after rebate + rate. Weighs 500 lbs less than an Xterra (negating power advantage), is better-looking, with a more upscale interior. And did I mention it's $20k?
Back to the GS, I'm surprised so many are going to aftermarket 17", when the 430 has 18" standard, and "Dubs" are en vogue.

I have been on the site for 3 hours reading all the posts(which I love) and have been looking for an answer to my question. I am on the fence with the GS430 and the M45. What is causing me to lean towards the M is the bluetooth. What I noticed is, you cannot have a private conversation in the car if you have other people in the car. Meaning, in the M, if a call comes in, and you dont want people in the car to listen, you can simply pick up the heandset and speak privately. Can anyone give me insight on the GS??? Can you do this?

You're going to spend $50-60K for a car and you are worried about the cell phone??? Sorry, but I just don't think it's really that important in the final decision - IMHO. Besides bluetooth technology will certainly change during your ownership period.
