After about 3 weeks of waiting, my Iforged Aero's have shipped out today. I got them from Derrick(very cool guy) @ D2Autosport. Now I'm gonna order the Dunlop Sport Maxx tires tomorrow since there wasn't any feedback on the Hankook S1 Evo tire. Is there any places where I get them cheaper than tirerack.com?

Taking this thread on a slightly different tangent than its original author intended, it seems that, in spite of the Michelin and Bridgestone tires that appeared on the 18" wheels of the first IS250s/IS350s that made the rounds of the auto shows earlier this year, Lexus has decided that ALL IS250s/IS350s sold with the Performance Luxury Plus Package (AKA Sport Package) will wear Dunlop Sport Maxx tires.

Apparently, as with the Bridgestone Potenza RE040s that graced many an IS300, Lexus has really done its homework on optimizing the excellent ride and handling characteristics of a given tire and, in conjunction with the expertise of Lexus suspension engineers, produced a truly exhilirating driving experience. Here's what Tire Rack has to say about these tires:

Bear in mind, however, that there are sometimes subtle differences between OEM tires and replacement tires, even when bearing the same brand and "model name".
