Will a set of str 607s 18x8 18x9 35mm offset fit on a is350? Or Will the same 18" vossen cv3s fit over the is350 front calipers? Str 607s are vossen cv3 replicas basically I was wondering if they will fit with the is350 front calipers or not with the slim inner barrel... Also I should do 225/40 /18 front and 255/35/ 18 rears on an is250 awd correct? Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

Hi guys, need some advice on what might fit better. Looking at a set of Work Meister S1 and set of SSR Professors.

Work = 18x8 38p front and 18x8 38p rear
SSR = 18x7.5 43p front and 18x8.5 43p rear

Going of my calculations the works will be a little more flush, where the SSR are closer to the stock wheels right? Any issues with these clearing IS350 brakes?

Thanks in advance

This thread would work much better if different people posted pictures of their setups and specs. Its 400 pages of reading and such my eyes hurt already and I still havent figured out what will or wont fit on my car lmao.

I'm currently running 275/30 on my 19 inch 9.5 rears... I want to get 285/30/19...

car is dropped 2 inches with Road Magnet springs... fenders are not rolled... with current setup I don't have any issues with rubbing...

can I run 285/30 without any issues?

thank you in advance for all your help

That's what the search function is for. Search the thread for the wheel fitment you have questions about, IE. "18x9 +15". If nothing comes up, search for "18x9" and you'll get hits with offsets close to +15, then just use common knowledge to estimate.

Want to make sure rolling diameter is in check?
http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-Size-Calculator

Want to compare your current setup to your new setup?
http://www.willtheyfit.com/

Using all of the above, anyone should be able to figure out for themselves what will or will not fit in terms of stance. As far as the work required to achieve that stance.. Well, just prepare for the worst. Roll fenders, trim wheel liners, be prepared to relocate bumper tabs, get adjustable camber arms and finally, get a four-wheel alignment.

Cv3's cleared my isf calipers and I'm pretty sure it'll clear the is350 calipers..

As far as the tire set up your asking about for your is250 awd, I was always taught that awd rim/tire set up should be square. Because if the diameter of the rims aren't equal it could put stress on your differential

^^^ The IS350 calipers are a little bulkier than the ISF calipers.

The rim in question is KOING SSM 18X8 +45, 18X9+50. The front rim is pretty much exact spec as the oem rim, the rear is only .5" wider. The offsets are 'weak' compared to most of the rims posted on here.

These should clear without fender rolling correct?
Shouldn't have rubbing issues right? I know it depends how long I go but i plan on going to just barely tucking tires, no finger gap.
Being 18x8+45 in the front that wont be a problem for the front caliper as it is pretty much oem size?
What tire size do you guys recommend? I'd like a small stretched look to it since my offsets aren't aggressive.
I might want to add spacers to both front and rear for a more flushed with fender look. Can somebody give me insight on how much I should probably go?

Click the image to open in full size.
not my picture but just a reference for the rim.
Welcome man! Seems like you and I were on the same boat! I owned a ek9 , Cl9 , UA7 type S also ( true honda/Acura owners will know what I'm talking about lol ). Decided I needed to step up to a lexus after my gf's is350 kept killing my TL :/ .

Anyways, that wheel set up your talking about seems like it's for a flush fitment for an s2k.. With that much high offset id worry of the wheel rubbing against the suspension rather then the fender line.

And if you want that stretch look , probably want to look into wider rims with +30ish offset ( maybe like 18x9.5 and 18x10.5) . If you really want a stretch look on a 8in rim , you probably wanna run 215/35r18( not enough rubber for our cars lol )

It all depends on how low you go.
1. Look into trimming or rolling your fenders
2. To make sure your rims clear , id test fit and determine how stretch you should go. Personally with 18" rims I like going with the 40 profile. Something like 235/40r18 or 245/40r18 ( will give you a nice stretch look ) .

Haven't been on this thread in a while...so many questions without enough detail to give an accurate answer. It would be nice if those wanting to help got complete questions about possible setups. Here are a couple basic things one would need to provide useful information.

- wheel size and offset (this is usually not an issue, but width/diameter/offset front and back)
- how low you want to ride (spring drop, coils and how much gap you want to fill, etc)
- look or style you are trying to achieve (flush, poke, tuck, etc)
- amount of tire stretch (none, minor, etc)
- willing to do fender mods (none, roll, pull, shave, bumper tab, etc)
- camber preference (no camber, natural negative camber, max negative camber, etc)

Without getting these basics, you are pretty much asking hypothetical questions that will get in return hypothetical answers. If you really want some "expert" advise, you need to have your setup planned out and then ask an "expert" question.

No hate here, just love and a want to help everyone I can...but like I tell customers at work, sometimes you need to help me help you.
