No problems with TCS yet. Only thing that has come up is I forgot to get my TPMS setup so that light comes on. Otherwise they're perfect.

So the wheels I got didn't have any TPMSs in them. Do you think the ones from the OEM 18" wheels will fit fine? I imagine so, but just wondering if anyone has experience with this.

looks realy nice ponychaser :thumbup
iam jealous
wich offset are your rims in the front?
i think about doing the same thing
have to buy the 19inch rims
but i have the choiche to go for the ET35 or ET40 on 8.5j rims all around
i hate the fender gap to i have with the eibach pro-kit
for the european market are the front and rear the same (1.3 inch lower)
thanks for any replay

Default isf rims on my 250 with isf front bumper

Hello, I'm running the same set up in the front 225/40/19 and 255/35/19 in the back...the tires fit fine with very minor rubbing when the wheel is locked to the left....If you dont want to do the heat gun trick with the plastic you can use 225/35/19 in the front to eliminate the minor rubbing...when my fronts wear down...I will go with the 225/35....oh yeah the stock sensors work fine with these rims........

Same thing really except I'm running 245/35/19 in the front and 275/30/19 in the back. I only rub on hard turns at low speeds, pretty much only while parking. The offsets are pretty aggressive as well so I'm just going to heat gun the plastics.

no problems with sticking out in the front?

They are reps as my signature says. And I like taking corners like this so I need added traction in the back.
