Default Weird wheel fitment

Hey, soo i just got my mb battles and i am extremely excited! i got the 18x9.5 +15 like most people run here. the thing is my fronts stick out like a whole inch or more and i don't know why. I"m not sure if any one has experienced this and my car desperately needs to be lowered

"Most" people here run that offset with a bit of camber in the front. Your front wheels look like my back wheels.

I would say a drop and some camber and you will be good. Oh and rolled fenders.

Mine's usually like that too when I jack it up. Lol

Edit: I see a lot of people giving wrong info here. Your offsets are totally fine, it's not gonna be easy fitting it since its a bit aggressive for SC's and Lexus in general. But it is doable. Just roll and pull your fenders, it'll fit nicely. And i did lower my SC. I personally have;

19x9.5 +12 225/35/19 -2.9 camber
19x10.5 +22 265/30/19 -3.9 camber

And I'm even planning on installing 5mm spacers all around to get some more poke out of it. Good luck.

Lower the car, camber should fix the fronts and run a spacer in the rear, I got quite a bit of natural camber when I dropped my car on ksports. PS, is that garnet red with bronze MB battles? Everything looks dark mainly the wheels.

Once you drop it, it will sink in with the natural camber. Mine did the same thing. Might still get a lil poke.
Unless you dont plan on dropping it,then it'll stay like that lol.

9.5 +15 up front will rub like a SOB if you dont stretch you tires even if you lower it it will look alot better but most likely you will rip your fenders off with those tires you need to run at least a 225 front tire

lowering that car will not tuck those wheels, you need to swap to a way smaller tire first , then lower it and see

im running a 225 on my 10.5 fronts, you should be going with at least that

also are you sure the disk on all those wheels is the same? Have you tried moving the fronts to the rear and vice versa?

offsets are too low. Im running the same but 19x8.5 +15 offset and with a 235, my fronts are rubbing so I had to raise it a lil until I get the camber worked out after I put some 215's on.

What size tires are you running? I wouldn't go any bigger than a 225 on a 9.5, that's what I ran on my Xb before, I like 215's on a 9.5 personally.

The car will look odd until you dial in the fitment, really shouldn't run low offset wheels with out suspension.

Offsets are not "too low", just needs to be lowered and dialed in. I have 10" +15 front with 235s and can turn full lock tucking tire. Lots of false info being given lol.
