What is your wheel setup? I'm really feeling the black, looks very sporty. Do you any pics of the rear/side quarter?

Thanks, I wish it was a camera trick. I'm not great at pulling fenders so it came out pretty ugly... not to make excuses but my heat gun also broke right as I started rolling the fronts too... As soon as I get a new heat gun and fender roller (which also broke) I'll be back at it trying to smood it out.

The fronts are 19x9.5 +1 (they're +16 but I ended up having to use a 15mm spacer to clear the caliper.)
The rears are 19x10.5, I forgot to check the offset but its got a 25mm spacer on it (I didnt want to fronts to stick out more than the rears after putting on the 15mm spacer.)
Sorry, I didnt get a chance to take any more pictures, it took me FOREVER to get all the coilovers on, lol.

Rolled and flared. I wish I had cut them though, would've been much easier and would have come out way nicer...

Thanks for all the compliments everyone. I bought these rims second hand so I can't take all the credit for trying something different, though when I saw these for sale I just had to have them, haha.

Edit: The rears are 19x10 -15 (theyre +10 but using a 25mm spacer)

That's my roommates car and I took that pic a long time ago.

He is on 19x9.5 +15 and 19x10 +9 SSR Kleids. 225.35.19 & 235.35.19.

He just sold the car to one of our very good friends. We just did an interior swap this weekend and took out the tan and put black in from another LS400. Look for a thread showing the interior swap in the next day or two. This LS will be going thru some crazy changes so its gonna look way different pretty soon....

These are the most recent pics I have with the new coilovers and ride height.

I couldnt flare the rears much so theyre not as bad as the fronts. I think I might just end up purchasing new front fenders and cutting out the lip next time since thats what messed up the roll (it was the holes in the lip from the clips that held in the fender liner and plastic gaurd.)

The fronts dont rub at all. The rears only rubbed when I made sharper turns or when I'd hit uneven surfaces. I just found out the offset I was running was -15 in the rear so I'm not surprised myself that they kinda rubbed. Im going to switch the rear 25mm spacers to 10mm for now untill I can finish the roll.

Looks as good as ever Bippu147. Can you lower your parked height? Do you 'have' to drive at that height?

thanks schnitz!

i don't "have" to drive at that height, but i don't want to destroy my fenders. When it's parked that's as low as the stock suspension goes.

I'll be upgrading to aftermarket air soon, I want to finish building my aristo before i put any more money into this thing.
