Ok, thanks, didn't know those were stock. I bought my 06 is350 last Tuesday and thought the chrome rims that came with it were stock.

Click the image to open in full size.

Looking to keep these rims and lower with swift springs.

Thanks,

Veach

Bakalag sorry to bother you with all my questions but may I ask if you felt a huge difference in ride quality when you moved from 18" wheels to 19" after lowering the car with swifts?

I have swifts on by 250. I paired them with the F-Sports shocks and I love them. I had them on the OEM shocks but they blew out a few years ago. It's a subtle drop and ride quality is pretty close to original. Handling is better than OEM.

Glad to hear that especially when coupled with the fsport shocks!
May I ask what wheel size your running?

I guess the ride was slightly stiffer with the 19s but the car felt more planted. I did go from 225/255 to 235/275 tires, could be also a factor. It's still comfy to me, however I do feel like the stock sport shocks are too soft. No complaints with the springs.

swift makes the best springs in the world
the swift springs for the 2IS is linear which is superior vs. progressive
the only linear springs for the 2IS are swift, tein h tech, and road magnet
downside is they had minimal drop (except road magnet, 2" all around)

any "discomfort on paper" would be negligible

I have decided to pull the trigger on these springs. I have an IS250 and have already purchased 19" wheels and tires. I was deciding on which lowering springs to get and it seems like this would be a good option for me. I figured it would be smart to install the springs first and then put the wheels on.

The things I am looking for is of course a better look, a comfortable ride, and an increase in performance would be a plus, although I don't plan on racing the car at all.
