Thanks man, I found the wheels cheap and snatched them up based more on the sizes and offsets than the looks, but then I decided they looked good too. I'll probably never fit more rubber under the fenders than I do now, but I've been dreaming of building myself a set of 3 piece works lately (something like 18x10.5 +45 and 18x9+35 step lip vs-editions). I won't have the money any time soon though. Your car pulls off the 19s really well, but I can't imagine how my car would ride on 19s, its stiff enough with 17s.
Yeah, I wanna see someone with a full body kit here in the states too! Well, one of these months there should be just a Sportcross only competition. lol Too many sedan owners hate the Sportcross. Oh well.

Ohhh, that step lip VS in those specs would be stunning. Yeah, I really never wanted 19s until I did a test fit of those and fell in love. The thing is....the ride wasn't as bad as I expected. I do want to go down to 18s soon.

We could rig the poll. It only takes about 20 to win. We just got to get all the SportX bros to vote for one and we can take this.

p.s. Sedan guys don't hate SportCrosses, they are jealous!

A full kit would be badass though, like the C-West or the TRD kit.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.

Thanks man, you got it dead on with the wheel specs, except I'm running 5mm spacers in the front for an effective offset of +37. Tires are 245/40 front and 265/40 rear. I'll need new fronts soon and am debating 255/40s with a 10mm spacer instead of 5. I think that will clear everywhere, but it's a tad wide for the 8.5 inch wheel.

I'm not going to be the one to go for a kit, every time I get any money for the car it goes into the engine or the suspension, but I really think someone will soon. The IS300 platform is becoming really popular, and the sx is a way to be unique with it. I've heard a few people saying they'd like a cross to mod. If I ever won the lottery though, I'd probably have the full elixir kit... that wing.

If we're planning a coup in the rotm contest, sway's probably our best shot, lol, he posts enough that people recognize the car. You've got my vote, man.

p.s. I had a sedan first... no doubt I was jealous

Yep, it's officially for sale now.

If I sell it and the buyer doesn't want the rack, you'll be the first to know.
