Default Can you put IS-F Rims on IS250?

Does anyone know if the IS-F rims are compatible with IS250s?
Ive got the 16inch and it looks crap... and love the new IS-F rims~!

What are the specs on the ISF rims? What other parts will i need to change if i can get those rims later on?

I don't know about fitment but the rims will most likely be in the 3-4k range without tires since they are made by BBS and are forged. You could get your car a unique personality with exceptional quality wheels for that price.

your best bet is to ask again in about 9 months when the car actually comes out so you can get more accurate answers...

Aren't 17's standard? How do you have 16's?

Also good luck finding them for a decent price when they DO come out.

I realize that IS-F wheels are nice but I'd rather not be called a poser and start taking things off the IS-F for my IS350. = /

Thats like a V-6 Camero running around with the SS hood. All show no go!

Yeah I ask similar question already, and you should wait for the IS-F to come out and ask....

Why not buy 'Work Termist TM1' wheels now, they are almost identical and D2 (a CL sponsor) has them -> http://www.d2autosport.com/works.html.

guess i'll wait and see, like it alot.
Oh, im in australia, the is250s comes in 3 different configurations.(Prestige/Sport/Luxury) which comes with 16,18,17 inch rims respectively. The 16inch looks crap on the IS~!
They didnt offer 17/18OEM rims on the prestige model as an option when i got it.

IS-F wheels are staggered 19" wheels, which some members have been able to add to their cars with no rubbing.

My hypothesis: we can add it on. It will most likely be expensive, but we can add it on...
