19x9 +31 High disk (for your IS350 bbk)
19x10 +24 Suple low disk

with 225/35/19 and 245/35/19 or 265/30/19 tires. you will need to roll your rear fenders...and get coilovers.


18s will look too small...especially since the sp3 has a step lip. 18s are already small on our cars.


plus...i kinda find it weird that youre coming from a z and dont know your offsets lol havent you lurked the z forums?!???

don't try and run Z offsets on the IS, you'll have to do fender mods and stretch tires

That's what I meant
I'm just not sure what offsets would work best on the IS. IS350 also has much bigger brake calipers compared to 350Z....that's just make it more complicated

I don't want to spend couple thousands on a set of rims and found out that they don't fit or end up looking like something half@ss. Also, I don't really want to go for 19's....I drove some cars with 19's and the cars would feels really hash and rough.

Thanks

if you dont know what stretch look means, just go to discount tires and let them make the choice for you....more than likely you dont know how the tire tread affects your driving experience

Default Offset ? For wheel Gurus........

I gots a set of 20's 8.5 front and 9.5 rears +24 all around. If I change the barrells with an extra 1/2" more would that make the front a 9" wheel and the rears a 10" wheel and if so what would the offset be then? I just started calculating that for every 1/2" it's basically 12mm so I just kind of guessed that the fronts would then be +12 and the rears would a +12 also but that's not figuring in the 1/2" added onto the barrell that's just the added offset on a 8.5" and 9.5" with the added push onthe lip. Technically I'm still just figuring offset for the 8.5 & 9.5 not it being a 9 and a 10". Can anyone help out.

1/2' is 12mm but that applies to both side of the barrel, so 6mm on one side. eg. 8.5' +24 in 9.0' will be +18

+1 ^^ you would be running +18 offsets which will probably rub without MAJOR fender mods...
