you can't do it, you will throw a cel if you swap them. At this time I do not know of any aftermarket wheels for the new IS

They're serious! The VDIM is very sensitive to changes in wheel size... so putting on aftermarket rims of a different size will cause you to get CEL's.

Aftermarket wheels + IS350 = CEL. So I read....I guess we wont know for sure until someone does it....trust me there will be aftermarket wheels on the new IS. Until then....enjoy this photochop :)

Oh... well obviously the coupe won't give you CEL since Lexus assumes a more "enthusiast" type of driver will own it and thus want to customize it. But you will need to get the secret code to turn off the VDIM first. That code/button sequence will sadly only apply to the coupe. Even the convertible will not allow you to disable the VDIM.
