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.

Want to make sure rolling diameter is in check?

Want to compare your current setup to your new setup?

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.
How do you think I found this thread? lol but thanks for the links. I was only pointing out this thread is 80% jacked with people asking questions with little to no answers as to what theyre looking for. But I do realize that a lot of factors come into play so hopefully those links you posted will help others.

Lol no I meant search within the thread to narrow down the posts you have to look through. You can check the "Pic of your 2IS" thread too, usually people post their cars and someone always has questions about their stance. Good luck!

I suggest you buy something eles then. When running aggressive setup you not wanting to buy then you can rub all day.

I'm not worried about rubs as much as them looking funky. Flush is what I'm trying for. I can get the wheels dirt cheap. I just don't want spacers at all or have that mad max look with the wheels sticking out

This isn't a will these wheels fit question but figured this was a good spot for my question. If not apologies!

Just bought this within the last few months it's a 2010 IS250. I love the look of so many of your IS's in the picture thread here but don't have the budget or abilities to do 95% of the stuff here. I really like the look of the darker wheels is that something I'd be able to do without buying new wheels (I've seen kits to darken them for instance that looked pretty easily DIY)? Any idea what my wheels are made of and would that matter with the product I get if it is possible to do myself?

I was wanting to do that and get the windows tinted and I think that would be a great start and not too expensive.

I just bought my wheels couple weeks ago and just need some pro tips about what tire size should I get or do i have to purchase a camber kitand if there's any adjustments on the camber where should i set it and I pretty sure I'm gonna need some fender modification on this one. currently lowered right now with at least 2 finger front and a lil -finger rear. Pic would be really great too. thanks.

I got a F19x9.5 +22 & R19x11 +25. I was thinking of gettin a 225/35/19 on the front and 255/35/19 on the rear with Continental Extreme DW.
