also, where would someone recommend finding hankooks at around $500?
the best answer to this is to look at the regional forum section. Here in socal, there's a few tire shops that give great deals on tires, or you need to know a few people. Like I said, it takes a little shopping around or "haggling." When i talked to a few owners of tire shops, they were able to knock down the prices of the tires.

Otherwise I just got the Euroteks. They are the same design as the Avant Garde M310's. I got them for $800 shipped. Here is where I bought them from if you are still looking. With tires I payed right around $1800 for everything. http://www.b2autodesigns.com/index.php?cPath=15_996
I DD my car with no problems running 235/35 and 275/30 dropped 2 inches. I don't think the offsets are too crazy. Either way euroteks are a good cheap alternative.
What are your offsets if you don't mind sharing?

I believe they are just knock offs... if you start calling them knock offs of knock offs you need to determine which ones were really the first replica... besides the point... just someone trying to find wheels to fit their budget. Nothing wrong with that. Not like he is going to put some BBS center caps on them and try to play them off like something they are not... hopefully
I was thinking about running the 18x8.75 xxr 530 but I was concern that it would require fender work for the fronts since is a concave look. Did you have to do any fender work?
ScoobyLai you don't need any fender work, I am runnin the LC818's 8.5 front 10's in the rear, all depends on what size tire u run. The xxr's look exactly like the lc818's, I'm actually considering a set myself
agree with Jump, 818's have already been deemed knock offs (i personally like them better than m310's) but don't go cheap on a lexus, i've done my share of knock off mods and have been scrutinized for it (not that someone should care, but i do). from what i know XXR's are decent but the few people i know that run that brand have them on their track 240's and what not because their cheap to replace because they're constantly getting banged up and wrecked.
