I think I finally achieved it. I have been looking for that balance of subtle, yet UNstock-look that will turn some heads, but at the same time NOT attract too much attention from the local PD. I also don't want the hassle of being too low that I have to slow down on every dip or speedbump.

I just added a set of '06 OEM IS350 wheels on 225/40 and 245/40 tires. Since the wheels are 18s, I am a bit higher off the ground, and at the same time cover up more wheel gap. However, I did discover that the rears rub when I hit certain bumps, and the front inner wheel well rubs when I reverse and turn.:( I also put on my front plate since my last post - just to avoid any future issues with california law enforcement...
Here are some pics:

This one shows how flush this sucka is. Also a nice picture of the Lebron logo I put on my rear windows...


View from the side:


How she was before on stockies...










***Can everyone tell me how much they paid to roll their fenders? Planning on doing it soon, and just want a figure for reference.

I am still looking for that ever elusive TRD grill, but I may have an alternative. If that does not work out, I guess I can live with my plastic ebay grill. The only other change I would like to make is the maybe the exhaust; other than that, I think she is a done deal.

Have a good and safe weekend everyone, time for beer and BBQ!

Everything flows together very nicely. You'll probably have to shave off some material where your rear bumper screws in. My rear wheels were rubbing until I did that.

Thanks man, I plan on rolling my fenders. What size tires did you have on the rear? I was going to go with 255, but decided it would be safer to go with 245 - still need to roll!

dude, nice bump.

thanks for the videos, I actually had my local tire shop to do it for $50/fender. I like that Japanese video, he got a nice headband and really enthusiastic about rolling fenders. The other one just seems a little too... Mr. Rogers (RIP) if you know what I mean...

I say take that hammer and bonk that fool that stole your spoiler.
