Hi all,

Looking to fit these wheels front and back and then lower it - I shouldn't have any issues fitting these (I think) but will I still need to roll the guards....

Planning on running 225/35/19 tyres.

Use this calculator....

Basically they will fit kinda perfect with that offset and width.

If you live in Australia your track wont be increased by more then 25mm so thats good but with those tyres your just scraping under the max diameter increase by .01 mm lol so you wouldnt want to go any wider in your tyres or you would be at risk of a defect notice if you live in Australia. 18" are a better option as it would let you run a wider tyre.

You wont need to roll the rears but the fronts will need to be rolled with a 23mm increase in your track up front.

Oh no that offset is perfect in my opinion. Its got nothing to do with scraping the inner guards because I run the same width wheels and the same diameter tires as you do. On the front they are 225 and the rears are 235 so you have no chance in scrubbing out.

The problem lies in the fact that 225 are a pretty narrow tire for an IS making any sort of power. If you have an IS200 and not planning on dropping in a JZ or going down any sort of power route then they will be perfect. On a IS300 though your going to want 235 on the rear at least and whilst they will fit no problems it WILL increase your overall tire diameter beyond Legal limits (15mm greater then whats on your placard) and you cant drop a profile because 35 is as low as your going to want to go which is why 18"s are better because they allow for a wider tire.

http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp this calculator will explain it a bit better. Keep an eye on the overall diameter when making tire choices.

guard rolling will only relate to how much camber you will run at the rear. generally speaking though no rolling is necessary. you'll be absolutely fine with those specs biggrin.gif

You'll be fine, i run 19's at 8.5" wide +35 all round. Had to cut some of the plastic inner, use to scrub when turning. Probably could roll the guards or run different tyres, but at the moment using 225/35.

If you're still running the oem sussy you may need to roll the rear guards Ad's. Up front you're going to scrub the front plastic guard mounting tabs.

I modified mine by use of a heat gun and pushed them further away, but once again I was lowered with firmer spring rates then the oem sussy (you may find it scrubs more at stock height with the oem sussy!)

But as the guys have already stated this offset is fine, I'm running 19X8 +38's up front with 3mm spacers with next to no scrub (scrubs occasionally)
