Is there a limitation on wheels for the 2011 IS350 AWD?

Recently parted ways with my IS300 for a 2011 IS350 AWD. Purchased through Lexus the F performance 18in 5 spoke split rims (the ones in the commercial). Apparently dealership's parts department has to research whether or not the specs are going to work with the AWD system. Beyond having to match the wheel diameter, does anyone know if this will work without messing up the AWD system?

Your car sholud be more than fine... As long as all 4 of your rims are the same size and width there would be no problems.

You can't (or shouldn't) use the "regular" F-sport wheels on AWD, Lexus offers an AWD-specific set for AWD models that aren't staggered.

I also picked up an '11 AWD 350 (traded in my '08 RWD 350). I put the 18x8 5 spokes on, with the 225/40-18 tires. Still wish I had something "taller" to fill the wheel wells a bit better--what's the tire size you guys are looking at?

Just make sure your rolling diameter is the same front to rear, beyond that your wheel/tire options are the same as any other 2IS model.
