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.

Wow, but the offsets of those Euroteks are going to cause a lot more issues compared to the perfect offsets of the LC818's... for those of us who need to DD their cars.

**EDIT: Just found another retailer that has more conservative offsets for the Euroteks +35f/+40r for $899

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.

This is great! We as a group have gotten to the point that we are trying to buy knockoff wheels of a knockoff. Awesome!

What are your offsets if you don't mind sharing?

Thanks

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

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

I'm just going by the website which claims it is 15 up front and 20 in the rear but I am not 100% sure. Everything runs fine and it fits with 275 in the rear.

Seems to me like you will be rubbing like crazy if you are lowered with those offsets.. unless you really stretch the tires.

Just a thought is dont put some crappy wheels on a lexus man. You bought a "high end" make dont go cheap on it. Just leave it stock.

Nope, no rubbing at all so I an assuming the website is wrong. I have it lowered to 25 inches from the top of the fender to the ground with no problems.

Yeah those offsets are off lol. I thought it was +38 for the LC818s?

You would need to at least pull your fenders and run stretched tires if those offsets were correct

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.
