Hi I was wondering if you still have your 18 inch, 5 spoke stock wheels. If u still have them how much are you selling the wheels and are they new? Thx
#54 of 92 Are the run-flats only standard on the GS350 AWD?

Or are they also on the GS350 & GS460? I noticed a notice on some of the new GS' on the dealer's lot today that said the tires may wear out as soon as 15,000 miles. Can I use regular tires for replacements?

My 07GS350AWD turned 20K miles last week.
Still have plenty of tread left on 4 tires.
Rotated every oil change (5K miles).
My wife drove it most of the time. She does not accelerate hard
as I do.
So the car doesn't burn much rubber.

Because your car as the all season tires- the RWD car has the performance tires that burns rubber rapidly.

You can buy the G Spyder wheels for about $200 each at lexuspartsmall.com.
#58 of 92 Corrosion on GS300 wheels
Apr 02, 2009 (11:18 pm)
I have a 2006 GS300 with about 7000 miles. All four of my stock 17 inch 10-spoke wheels have corrosion or the finish is bubbling around the center cap area. I was wondering if any other Lexus owners are experiencing the same or similar problem with their wheels?

Dealer/Lexus should replace at no charge, F.Y.I I received recall notice on 3 items: 9LA fuel delivery pipe, 9LC Lexus Power steering link and 9LB rear brake dust boot on my 2006 GS300 AWD with 29k miles
I made service appointment and mentioned all 4 wheels are corroding with the LF the worse. Car was in the shop for 2 days covered the recalls and gave me an ES350 for loaner
Dealer called and said they were replacing all 4 rims at there cost but would be several days to get them in. No arguments or questions. Understand that even with the atrocious Cleveland weather, roads, salt snow, I personally wash the car in my garage at least once possibly twice a week depending on how much I've been on the roads. Also while the car has been in the shop for the recalls they attempted to fix the rattles in the dash. Dash began to rattle a week later all over again. Love the car but the problems and recalls are getting annoying and while it has been no cost for repairs I never thought I would have these type of issues.

Thanks for your response. The corrosion on your rims confirms to me that my problem is not an isolated problem. I forgot to mention that my Lexus dealer is also replacing all 4 of my rims with no arguments.
My powersteering failed on me last year. To correct the problem they replaced the entire powersteering unit.
I too agree that I never expected to have these problems, but I must say that the dealer has been very good about correcting them under the warranty. Excellent support so far.
#61 of 92 Upgrading to GS 400
Jun 22, 2009 (1:04 pm)
I've decided to upgrade to a 1999/2000 GS 400, from the ES 300. What should I watch out for and look for in terms of inspecting and asking what has been done to the vehicle. Especially things you all deal with on your GS 400. Much appreciated
#62 of 92 Replacing runflats
Jul 02, 2009 (10:18 am)
Anyone have experience with replacing the runflats with regular tires? Does it add a lot of weight to add the spare? Does the GS have a donut or would I need a full-size spare?
Is the handling negatively impacted? The tech said the suspension settings are designed for RFTs...
