Hi all, Enkei has some really nice new wheels out, the TS-5s. I am looking at the 18's, and they have the following specs available: 5x114.3: a) 18X8.5, 40mm, b) 18x8.5, 38mm, c) 18x9.5, 38mm. My car is lowered by 1.5" front and 1" rear, no fancy coilover setup or anything. Can anyone advise whether these would work on the my 2002 IS? I know these specs don't line up perfectly to our stock 17's, which I believe are 17x7, 50mm. Appreciate the help! Haven't had much luck with searches with these wheels being so new. I would be fine adding spacers, if that would help with fitment. Thanks!

The 40mm on the front. The 9.5 rear in 38 will work. You will need to roll the fenders and quarters.

Thanks much. I'm actually considering the 17's as well..would be nice to have a decrease in weight versus stock. The 17's are offered in 17X9 and 17X8, both in 40mm. Would those work without requiring rolling the fenders or quarter panels? Is the 40mm versus stock 50mm a concern? I've read in the past that you should try to stick as close to stock.

You may need to. It will be close. I would, just for piece of mind.
