So this is a See-Through Hood?

Was not sure if it was fancy paint job or photo-shop

HAHA

It's photoshopped, you take 2 pictures on a tripod, one with the hood down and one with it up and you layer them on top of each other. Then you get rid of everything in the hood up picture cept the engine bay.

Well I thought it was photoshopped, but did not want to look stupid saying is wasn't.

Guess that did not work....

i'm running F 19x8.5+35 235/35/19 and R 19x10 +45 265/30/19, my car vibrates when rolling around 20-40km then smooths out till 120km . i'm only feeling the vibrate coming from the front. I also had an alignment done after the wheels were installed and i still feel the front shake still. Do i need to change to a different tire setup to fix this? thanks

make sure they balanced the wheel correct and make sure your hub bore on the 19 are 60.1 if not you need hub rings.

I have a IS250 AWD and I wanted to put the vossen vvs-086. I was told at a shop that 20x9 in the front and 20x10.5 in the rear is possible for my AWD IS250. The tires to run that is 245-30-20 in the front, and 285-25-20 in the rear.
With some magical tire calculation this guy gave me at a shop said, "there would be 25.78 in the front, and 25.61 in the rear, leaving .17 different." ??? I don't understand?

So can i run this staggered setup with out messing up my car. I heard other wise.

It would be awesome if I could stager with these rims I want!!!!!!

Phillie you can run stagger wheel it's just all about the tire diameter the AWD system is a 30f/70r Which allows you some room to play with different tire size. Ask papahoff he running stagger 20's no issues

OK I was wondering if I can go with 18" rims

F - 235/45-18
R - 265/40-18

Reason being is we have pretty bad roads up here (Montreal), so going with a staggered and running 35's in the rear, it is only a matter of time before I damage a rim.

I know my speedo will be off, but other than that is there any other problems?

The OD is just 0.02" difference between front and rear.

Thanks

Salty250 it not the rim you gotta worry about it the tire size cause the rims will fit you can run a 225/35 or 235/35 front and rear 265/30 and 275/30

what does 30f/70r mean?

for the vossen vvs-086 20x9 front and 20x10.5 rear with tire size 245-30-20 and 285-25-20. I was told there is a .17 difference in diameter. Will that hurt my IS250 AWD?
