Default Help~ Thinking to Fit a Standard IS350 18" wheels on 2nd Gen GS300

Hi everyone, this is my first time posting up here, i jst bought myself an 2nd Gen GS300 and i would like to start modifying~

i have couple of ideas, please heard them out thanks~

First thing first which is wheels and suspension. I am planning to install a 18inch standard IS350 wheels on my GS.

thn i come across a problem, the standard IS350 wheels are 18x8 et45 and 18x8.5 et50. Does anyone ever fit the rear wheel in the front??
i have found someone owns 2 of 18x8s and 4 of 18x8.5s and i want to get those 4 of 18x8.5 et50, but i am not sure if they will fit?? or should i be safe and go for the 18x8s and 18x8.5s? (seen someone done it before~)

This thread reminds me of my first thread when i wanted to do a retrofit. I literally posted about 15 different GS' retrofit shots not realizing that abviously some where CL members. I was just pulling um off google lol. #tbt

Op you'll find that almost anything can be done it will really come down to if you want to do it or not. The front rims in my signature were 20x8.5 and were fine but I only had a small drop on springs. I'd imagine if i went lower i'd need the fenders worked a lil. Good luck bro and congrats on ur new ride.

Nahhh they'd be idiots for being offended by someone sharing a picture of their car as inspiration for someone else. Good luck - hope someone with these will chime in soon
