What size did you end up going with? I went with a 255 in the rear and 225 in the front.

^225/35/19s and 245/35/19s. I tuck the rears, so I went a little slimmer in the rear to start; can always go bigger if wanted.

Those wheels look great on your car. The Lexus center caps give the wheels a nice oem look.

Im looking at getting a set for my AWD is250. Have any of you experienced problems with the "staggered" option with your AWD car? Its my only concern. Also does anyone have pictures of these wheels on STOCK suspension?

I saw your post and loved the way the genesis wheels look on the IS. I have a 07 IS350 and im looking to get a set now, if I get the 5mm spacers for the front wheels I wont have any other issues right?

There have been AWD owners that have had issues with a staggered setup; but I'd say as long as the tires were the same size all around, you should be fine. The wheels are 19x8 up front and 19x8.5 in the rear...all with a 30 offset.

Correct. I assume you're not slammed, otherwise you'd have to look into the fender tab mod and other small mods like liner moddification.

if anyone is looking, try and keep an eye out on Ebay for those wheels. I found a dealer take off set when I got for 900 bucks, Since the tires didnt fit, I ended up selling the tires for 500, and put them towards a new set of rubber when I installed on the IS

Default Track Wheels

So these Genesis track wheels are plug and play, just recommend aftermarket lug nuts. No other additions or modifications needed to safely travel with these wheels on. In another thread a read about different hub bore sizes....? I have a 2008 IS 250 RWD by the way, Thank You

You will need "tuner" style aftermarket lugs AND you'll want hub centric rings (60.1 to 67.1). Since you have an IS250, you'll NOT need a spacer to clear the calipers like I did for my 350.

Why do we need tuner style lugs for this wheel? and what hub centric ring are you using polycarbonate or aluminum? I do not track the car. I drive highway and city daily.

^Why? Because that is the style of wheel lug nut seats that were designed to be used with the wheel and the Genesis car from the factory. People have good luck with the plastic ones, but I went with a nice billet aluminum set off of ebay

^It's not like Hyundai actually made the wheels though; they just came on them. Hell, the same manufacturer of the "Track" wheels and the OEM Lexus wheels could of came from the same foundry.

You have admit these wheels are MUCH better looking than the stock ones!
