Default IS250 with IS-F brakes (need help)

Hi everyone,

I recently picked up IS-F callipers and rotors.
I read online that the IS-F front hubs are needed although the IS-F callipers bolted perfectly to my IS250 RWD hubs (both front and rears), only modification that was needed is bending/hammering in the dust shield.

the only reason i test-fitted the brakes is to see if my wheels will clear them.
It didn't, it only clears if I add a 10MM spacer.

My current front wheels are 19x9+18 with a 215/35 tire.


my options are as follows:

1. sell BBK and live with small, ugly IS250 calipers
2. Run the 10MM spacer to fit my Work wheels (I will have to raise up the car from my current height)
3. sell my wheels and buy new ones.


I need help deciding as I have no idea what to do.
