Wheels, Check. Coilovers, no check :(

Had some time this saturday to test fit some 18x9 BBS LM's I have been reading quite a bit on what will fit stock suspension and what won't. I knew the LM's weren't going to fit, but I couldn't stop myself from putting them on anyway.




They look awesome IMO, but wait till you see how hella-UNflush they are




Here is why you NEED coilovers (unless you like meaty monster truck style)








So I'm hopefully ordering some coilovers and other pieces to get a better fitment, with the aid of some camber

R u sure they will fit flush even with new coilover? It looks like a offset issue, but I might b wrong.

They will fit with no problems whatsoever. You'll need smaller tires though.

In fact... The rear will probably even be a little sunk after you slam it.

@twestman, thanks for the input. I think I will stretch a 235 on the rears to fit it, I think that would help.
However I have also been looking at the the white IS300 in the aggressive fitment thread (sorry I don't recall his user name) and he is running

Front: 18x8.5 +30
Rear: 18x10 +25
(XXR's 521's I believe, unless my eyes deceive me)
And from the pics it looks like it fits pretty good, of course pics only tell half the story
But I really like the look he achieved

@Kckouki WOW your rear is WAY sunk ! I had no idea it would go that deep (thats what she said *haha) on stockies
