Default Yet another Wheel fitment question

Hey i came across a great Deal for a set of Vemiri Peralae Wheels. The fitments are as follows:

Front: 8.0x19 / 5x114,3 / Offset +30
Rear: 9.5x19 / 5x114,3 / Offset +42

Wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 235/35/19 in Front and 265/30/19 for the Rears. Judging from the pics in the Aftermarket Wheel Thread this setup should fit the 2IS nicely but i'm not quite sure about the 8.0" wide wheel with the +30 offset in Front. Do you think it fits without rubbing? I have an IS250 with Sport Suspension. Thank you in advance guys

btw here's a pic of the Vemiri Peralae:

That will fit just fine, and you shouldnt have any rubbing issues in front.

I thought I saw a tweety bird!.
I am sure the tires will not cause any rubbing issue. The question is more on the wheels. +30 off on 8" is a maybe. I see most using +35 above on 8.5" front.
Good luck!

If the 8.5" +35 works the 8" +30 will definitely work as that combo actually retracts by 1mm so you have more outer fender clearance, and you have more backspacing as well.

I'm no wheel expert, so don't trust me 100%, but it should work as long as the design of the wheels work.

Try reading this thread, it might help.

That bolt pattern and offset is correct.

The only other thing you need to check is the hub size. Ours are 60.1mm so if the wheels have a smaller hub then it would not fit your Lexus.

Whether it rubs or not also depends on the tire size and your suspension setting. On stock or on eibachs (1.4" drop) You can use 235/35R19 without rubbing. anything wider you might have issues in the front.

Question Question about 18x8.5 and 18x9 offsets...

I recently decided to buy new wheels of this size from D2 Autosport... Derrick sent me an email asking which offset I would prefer:

You can get them in a very conservative fitment:

18x8.5 / 48offset
18x9.0 / 35 offset

This spec will be conservative and you will have no rubbing issues whatsoever, if anything my concern would be clearance of the caliper with such a high offset. If you want to go this route I'll just double check with AME on clearance

Here is the more aggressive spec that's availible

18x8.5 - 30offset
18x9.0 - 25offset

This is an aggressive spec and you would need to strech the tires a little to avoid rubbing etc. This spec would reallt fill out the fenderwells nicely and continue the really aggressive theme of the black wheel finish. If you need a reference a 18x9.0 25et will sit flush with the fender like a 18x10 37et


I'm not sure what he means by "stretch the tires"...? Also, what would you guys recommend? (the car is dropped 1.4" in the front, and 1" in the rear)

I would like the offsets to give a more aggressive look than stock, but not necessarily completely flush if it will cause any rubbing issues. I also plan on putting 235s or 245s in the front, and 265s or 275s in the back once I need to replace the stock tires (keeping them for now), and I don't know how that might affect any rubbing.

Thanks for your help.

I am now driving
18x8.5 20+ offset
18x9.5 20+ offset

I have a little rubbing problem at the front while making a big turn.. but the heatgun trick on the "Aftermarket Wheel ForuM" should fix the problem for me..
and yet.. other than that.. i don't have alot of problem..

Oh.. my tire pressure warning lights are on..
I probaly hv to go to the dealer..
that s all!

Is your car lowered? ... And what would cause the tire pressure lights to come on with those wheels that wouldn't happen with stock wheels?
