Oh man that really bites the big one.....

Did u try them on yourself or did you bring it to a mechanic?

When I got my 16x7 ALT 190 Seven's (offset 40) I took off my driver side front wheel and tried one on at 3AM in the morning, heh. Luckily is not near the brake caliper and spun quite freely. This doesn't mean there may not be any problems, but I'll find out when I get my tires and mount them on this weekend. I'm crossing my fingers.

I tried them on myself and it didn't look too bad, however, the weight was too close to break caliper. I didn't install it properly and spin it around so I didn't know if it really works.

Today I took them to the dealer to get the weight adjusted.. and guess what?.. they don't fit .

alright.. its going to be a pain in the butt, but they are putting a calltag on my wheels. I'll get my money back (at least that's what the guy said) and they come pick it up at my door

You need to be really careful since the IS has such large calipers. I had 5Zigen send my wheels "free of charge" so that I could test fit them.

Hope you get your $$'s back.
