The rears should fit without a problem. The fronts might rub, I know that the front fenders were widened to fit the wider wheels.Does anyone know if the ISF wheels fit a 250 or 350 without rubbing???
JoeZ said:So finally today we had to chance to test fit the IS-F Wheels on a IS350 and the IS350 wheels on the IS-F (for Big Brake Kit fitment)..
A Huge & Big Thanks goes to member "CrazyMPG" for allowing us to use his IS-F and of course photo skills...
For the record the IS-F oem jack is cheaper than the IS350 oem jack..
Ok so here it goes...
Starting with the IS350...
In the Front the 19x8 IS-F wheel DOES NOT clear the oem IS350 monoblock caliper... The wheel inner face touches the caliper face... SO unless I / you get a spacer or grind the caliper, there is no way to test this wheel for full fitment...
Well I actually can, but I'll have to buy the OEM IS-F front Big Brake Kit (the Brembos) from the Group Buy Carson's having..
In the Rear the 19x9 IS-F wheel clears everything just fine from a visual stand point.. and bolted up with zero issues..
I could not drive my car, so that's all I can comment on that.
I'm sure the one's at Sewell are genuine. They sell too much Lexus stuff to be selling replicas. Also, these wheels have Lexus center caps with the Logo. It's a copyright offense to use that logo without Lexus's consent. Not to mention how hard Lexus would come down on them.The IS-F wheels are made by BBS and Lexus is not willing to sell them. You can probably find replicas online; I doubt the ones sold at Sewell are authentic, unless they're very, very tight with Lexus (which they probably are). You're still looking at more or less $8,000 for a set and honestly, there's much better looking out there for a better price.
By the way, what is the ISX50? I keep hearing about it over and over again but can't seem to find any info.
i don't see why you'd think lexus would sell replica rims. :suspiciouLowrideraz... Lexus does not freely distribute these. You cannot acquire a brand new set through the market unless you are an IS-F owner looking for a replacement rim. My best guess is that the ones on Sewell are refurbished sets. With the sales tax in my region they would come back at $7.4k, which is not far off from the $8k mark straigth from the dealership were we able to buy them.
yup and a very successful one as well...I had lexus college training for my ongoing certification as a lexus employee, and they used a phone survey in one of my classes that was recorded from their dealership who said very good things about them...Didn't know Sewell was an actual Lexus car dealership. In any case the dealerships around here won't sell the rims. Not that they're worth buying, anyways. I mean, really.
