    Please Help! New Wheels and Tires Rub!

    Let me start by saying I'm new to this forum and really need some help! I recently purchased a 2013 GS 350 for my wife. I ordered a set of Lexani CVX 44 20x9 front and 20x10.5 rear
    with 245/35r20 front and 275/30r20 rear Nitto 555 tires. I did as much research as I possibly could and didn't see any problems with the setup. The wheels were ordered from Discount
    Tire and they agreeded they would fit with not problems. I had the tires mounted and balanced here at the shop I work at and installed on the vehicle. They look amazing BUT the front
    tires rub on turns and hit the left front fender lip on dips. I started doing some investigating and notice the front wheels are a 20mm offset. I called Lexani and they tell me 35mm would
    be a better fit and 45mm was stock. Discount Tire says its not the offset but that my front tires are too big. I think the front wheels stick out too much causing the problem with hitting
    the fender when going through dips but if they bring it in then its going to rub ob inner fender liners more, right?? Do I need a different offset or a smaller size tire OR both? Please help if
    you have any suggestions or experience with this setup. My wife is about to make me put the stocks back on if I can't stop the rubbing problem.
