I think I would like to get the Racing Hart M5's in 19's a little later on. Neone got pics of M5's on an IS300? If 19's are too much I might got for 18's. Ne suggestions?

there are a couple pics around here...i think bigdaddyrich has them and a couple other people, you should be able to pull up something if you search under his name or m5.

the three piece m5s are gonna be a good amount of money, or you can go with the 1 piece which are a lot cheaper.

I want 19's but if it's too rough I'll probably go get the 3 piece 18's. What can help 19's ride smoother? nething?

theres not going to be a big difference between 18s and 19s except performance. if your not worried about that, then 19s will be fine...18s or 19s, youll need a 40 or 35 series tire which is going to make the ride a little rougher so theres no way to avoid that

just get a good set of springs or coilovers and youll be alright.

that all depends on you...how much you looking to spend?..what kind of style you going for? do you want a lightweight racing wheel, or flashy chrome?

hey.... I just got 19" rims from L-Sportline and I'll have pics up in a bit..... they dont look bad without any suspension mods, but I MIGHT need to drop a lil.... I DONT KNOW, how about you guys give me an opinion if I need to drop an inch or so....... I would prefer not to touch the suspension though =/ (by the way, I'm into looks... not touching performance at all)

the eibach springs are a 1" drop...i heard it settles out to a little more than that...looks pretty good.

if you want more than that, tein springs are very nice..(thats what i got) the new s series is out and i think itll drop you a little more than 1.5"...not positive though.

and if your gonna install them yourself, theres a sticky on installing them that will help you.
