YES, they use the same offset wheels from the factory.
MOREOVER....even though *visually* it looks like the C rear fenders don't stick out as much as the sedan, they in fact stick out SLIGHTLY more......
I did A LOT of research on this when I was playing with offsets for my wheels. I was very concerned that there wouldn't be as much space in the vert as there was in the sedan due to the way the rear fenders flare in the sedan vs the vert.
But, lo and behold, when I measured it vs a factory sedan, I found that there was about 1-2mm more room in the vert
Also, the vert has the same "issue" as the sedan where one side sticks out slightly more than the other (IIRC the left side sticks out more)
Here's a pic of mine for comparo. This is a 8.5" +40 front (225/35) and a 9" +40 rear (265/35). Factory ride height
Hope that helps. LMK if you have any other sedan vs vert questions. There's some parts that do interchange, and some that don't.....
And just some differences I've noticed from the 06 to the 10 model. http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-s...0-changes.html
