The wheels are 18X8 +25 Offset all around, Effectively +20 on 215/35/18 tires perfect for the IS with no rubbing on my rolled fenders.

When you rolled your rears, did you have any issues with the paint chipping?
Agreed about WA roads, and no, Ray at Autohero did an awsome job, but most people do get chips because of the metal of IS300s. I think i have one small one, but bare noticable.

Thats man! The only lip i really liked was the TRD one and i felt its to played out so i went with the sportX look plus i think it looks way cleaner anyway, and i've never seen lips for SportX's that would be cool to check some out!

I want one badly....but the only way to get a front lip is to get the JDM Gita bumpers.

Or find a shop that can custom make one to our USD sportx bumper. If you know any custom shops...PM me!

I just got mine rolled and had no issues at all. Yogi, Josh, Mason and a few others helped.

Lets do a photoshoot together
Maybe we can get Josh and Mason out with us

You will need to roll your rear fenders with that stance. What size tires you going with?

Im running 18x8/9 +35 all around. Tires im running are Fr.215/40 Rr.235/40. Without the rear fenders rolled, I was rubbing the sidewall on big dips. The fronts have no issues at all. Probably can get away with 225/40's if you dont want the even stretch look.

Yup....we all rolled ours and everything came out smoothly. It's all in the heat gun. One was heating while the other was rolling.

Definitely down for a photohoot...I know Mason would be too.
