Hi, im new to the forum and i have a wheel fitment question. I have some wheels that i bought. They fronts are 19x9.5 +40-ish. Backs are 19x10.5 +50-ish. The backs fit and i have roughly an inch to spare between the back rim of the wheel and the fenderwell. Im assuming i'd need to stretch the tire to make it not rub (255/35 or 265/35 im guessing). The problem is the front. The 9.5 hits the control arm. It looks like its about .5" too wide. Is there a way to make this sob fit?? These wheels are too sexy to let go. Theyre maya/trafficstar stm. Thanks!

Hi, I'm planning to buy new wheels for my 2007 IS250 RWD.

Work Emotion CR Kiwami
F: 19x8.5+35 225/35/19
R: 19x9.5+25 235/35/19

Also planning to lower it on BCBR coilovers in the future. Will this setup work?

Thanks!

Hey all. I have been searching and have not been able to find my answer. I just bought a set of wheel that are 18 x 8.5 +40 front and 18 x 9.5 +40 rear. The tires I have for them are 225/40/18 in the front and 255/40/18 for the rear. Do you think I will need to roll/pull my fenders at all? I have a 1.5" drop on Megan springs. If you could help me out, that would be fantastic. Thanks a lot.

Hello all. I wonder if this will work on my IS250 2007 RWD. 19x8.5 +30 front, and 19x10 +36 rear. I'm lowered on H&R. Thx in advance!

Just picked up an 05 as a daily. I've read a solid 3/4 of this thread and a few suspension threads for the last couple of hours. The first page calculator thing was helpful, but also kind of confusing...and to be honest i'm exhausted. I'm looking to fit 18x8.5 + 35 and 18x9.5 + 40. Lowered on Tokico blues and eibach prokit springs. I'm thinking 225/40 and 245/35 for tire sizes? Any fender mods needed? Thanks in advance!

I am looking to get 18x9.5 in the front and 18x10.5 in the back. +25 offset. What sizes tires would be best. Was told 225/40 in the front and 255/40 in the back? And how much rolling or pulling would have to be done?

Hello! Im new to the forum and I hope I found the right place for this question but I own a 04 IS 300 and was hoping to find out if the Scion FRS Stockies would fit onto my car? I don't know much about wheel fitment or anything and was hoping to get some more information about it. I know these are stockies but you cant be too safe. Any help and info is appreciate and thank you for taking your time to read this! :]


Below is the wheel I'm looking to switch over to.

Hi everyone,

I have a 2004 IS300 SportCross. The rims are 17x7 +50mm offset on the front and 17x7.5 +55mm offset on the rear. I am about to buy some IS350 rims that are 18x8 +45mm offset front and 18x8.5 +50mm offset rear. I am planning on buying +5mm spacers to get the offset the same as the 17's. To you guys see any issues with this plan or know of any issues with the tires rubbing or suspension issues?

Thanks,
Tom

Long story short. I have a 2008 IS250 AWD. I have a set of Tom's C7R's from my 91 Toyota MR2 (R.I.P.). Sizes are 17x8 30 front, and 17x9 29 rear. My IS is completely stock. Isn't a staggered wheel width not really ideal for the AWD or will it be ok? Suspension mods may come later. Just trying to see if these wheels are still useable, or if I should try and sell em. Thanks for any help.

yea, adding a 5mm spacer will not make the same offset as your original 17's. Spacers reduce the offset, not add to it. so essentially, the new 18x8+45 with the 5mm spacer would make the new setup 18x8+40. This means the rim face is almost 1 inch extended compared to your orignal wheels.

Will size 19x8.5 & 9.5 +38 offset rub, hit, or touch the fender walls on my 2012 Lexus IS250 RWD if I'm running 235/35ZR19 front & 265/30ZR19 rear!?? Ordering Work Wheels Emotion T7R Energy Mint Blue.

Hey guys, I’ve got a 2006 is350 stock suspension and fenders. I was wondering if a 18 x 10.5 +15 wheel would work without rolling and pulling my fenders? This may be crazy but I thought it was worth the ask...
