thats alot of camber buddy. have fun changing front tires every 1000 miles. you wont need to do anything with that much camber. will be sunk.
Thanks captain obvious. We all know what camber does to your tire life. Im running around 4° and I believe I'm at 1800 miles. Easily have 500 more. All in your setup/alignment.

You don't know what you're talking about lol

Wrong thread. The wheels will hit the front spindle as well.
Where's the proper thread then?
I thought this was aggressive fitment?

this looks awesome.
thank you. I need to get back to her. revalve and new springs are next, then I think I will tackle the spindle issue.

I may be crazy, I'm just looking at getting some wheels for my IS (just got it). Did you roll and pull or how is a +22 on 9.5 fitting?
roll is a must. the front fenders kind of pulled themselves when we rolled the fenders cause they are so thin.

im sure there is way to get around rolling the front fenders without pulling, but I don't know of said way. the rears are a PITA to roll.

Also worth noting. When you are this low, you are going to run into spindle clearance issues.

great fitment...I went through some "aggressive" fitment and I was shocked to see a bunch of wheels sub 7.5~8" :laugh:

do your fronts not rub on the spindles? my 9.5 +22 wheels are 5-10mm away from the spindle and I compared your specs to mine on willtheyfit.com and it says your wheels are 6.7mm closer to the spindle. I didn't know you could run 9s with that high of an offset in the front.

Hi all - not sure how active this thread is anymore, but hoping y'all can help me out!

Looking for Level A - semi-aggressive

Wheels: 18x8 +40 (front and rear)
Tires: 225/40

Planning on using with air ride suspension (UAS bag - IS300 model specific)

I want front and rears to be able to tuck up a little bit inside when parked and lowered. Not going for hella flush or anything like that.

Will these wheels work?
