I'm wondering what the difference is between the ISF and F-Sport wheels. I know they're different wheels, but which cars come with each kind of wheel and what makes the ISF wheels so much more expensive*?

*ISF @ $6.6k, F-Sport @ $2k

I own a 2006 IS350 and have read that the F-Sport wheels do not fit my car with the stock front calipers. Anyone know if this is the case for the ISF wheels?

Thanks! (If this has been asked, then I fail at searching; sorry!)

Fail at comprehension! :lol:

19" IS-F wheels DO NOT FIT IS350 without Spacers.

19" F-SPORT wheels WILL FIT IS350 without Spacers.

IS-F wheels are made by BBS, therefore have a heftier price tag.

Oooh, I see. Thank you both for the clarification.

On the IS350, what disadvantages would there be to using spacers to fit the IS-F rims?? Do they cost a lot or are they hard to install?

And can you point me in the right direction for finding more places to buy them (in hopes of finding cheaper dealers)? Thanks!

Post what you ultimately do OP. I kind of want to look into putting on the IS-F wheels on my 2008 IS 350 next year but know that I need the spacers. The problem is that I'm really not familiar with what they are and how much they cost. I'm also hoping the longer wait to put the IS-F rims on will make them get a little lower in price because right now, they seem to be around $2,000+ used

ISF wheel is better wait for some ISF owner change their wheel and sale it used. hehe $6600 just ridiculous, u can buy VR-G2 or RS-D with tire and still cheaper.
Factory parts cost a lot at dealer if u buy them new, but factory parts always cost less if u get them used or from junk yard!
