Just got these supermesh. 19x9.5
Still waiting for the fronts 19x8.5 before I can throw them on
3.5" lip.

UPDATE!!!!!!
posted on end of thread.

Pissed: I test fitted the rims and the Rim don't fit. not that it is too wide but the design of the face angles back and the stokes angle pass the offset line made it touch the brake caliper.

It did clear the brakes with a 1/4 inch spacer but need stud extension. don't think I want to do that.

Good thing I didn't mount tires on them yet.

I'm going to make an appointment at Axis to see if the other offset would work.

Nice wheels man, make sure to check that you have caliper clearance.

Are you going to sell your x-philes :wink:

Sweet looking wheels! I have an older set of 18" lowenharts that look the same, but with a full cover center cap. Going to put them back on my car tonite.

what size for your tire?
the one I saw at my friend's car is 225/35/19 front, and 245/35/19 rear. They look incredably sick!!! I love it. I plan to get it for my car. How much did you buy them? where at?
Thank's...My friend quoted me about $2200 with nitto tires.

8.5 front is too wide for the is300. the optium size for the front of an is3 is an 8width..you can actually run wider tires with 8 than 8.5.
