Do you mean Tire & Wheel Package ?

Front 19x9 with a 255/35

Rear 19x10 with a 275/35

I expect the front wheel to have an approx. 45+ Offset and Rear to have an approx. 50+ Offset.

If I remember correctly, when I was looking for an aggressive concave design, the IS-F would not accept one.

Unless that's changed in the later years but i don't see that they changed the body on the F sedan.

yup, can't wait to see rcf on some quality jdm wheels

i am interested in finding out the wheel fitment on the rc too. hopefully it is something like the sc430 (compared to 2gs) where it could take in more aggressive setup

I noticed Liquid Platinum is only offered on the RC-F. I have it on my GS F Sport, and it is an outstanding color that almost glows when the light hits it... even in overcast weather. It will most definitely define the lines of the car, unlike the Silver Lining offered on the RC350 and RC350 F Sport models. That is pretty much basic silver. It also contrasts nicely with the darker wheels.

Test drove a 2013 IS F last week - in Liquid Platinum - I was really impressed with that color as well. Reminds me a bit of the 1998 Supra "Quicksilver" color. Very distinctive. LP really did highlight the lines on the IS F, and I am sure on the RC F as well...
