Looking really nice. I still need more work on mine so i haven't posted any pictures yet. Working on the Tein drop kit for mine so it can actually look like i'm driving a car not a 4X4. I wish i could get a coilover kit but wanna save my money for the Borla Exhaust if it ever comes out. Keep up the good work. Laters

Simply Wheels

Check out my new wheels...

TSW Laguna s

F - 18 x 8 -- 225/40 Conitrac All Seasons
R - 18 x 9 -- 255/40 Conitrac All Seasons

I really wanted 19s, but could not find decent all season or winter tires to fit the 19s. I had to go with 18s.

Next mod is Coilovers, get the wheels nice and close. After winter though... I am in the northeast.

Those tires look great for winter. Where did you get that setup from? How much did it run ya, if ya don't mind my asking. Also, you're not selling your stock rims by any chance are ya?

Installed LMS custom springs

I got LMS custom springs installed yesterday on the IS350. I was looking for a slightly lower and more even drop than the Eibach's provide. Steering and handling feel a lot better than stock. No rubbing, scraping or bottoming out. It feels close to stock without being harsh. This is definitely a good alternative for those who are looking for a drop but don't want or can't afford coilovers.

Here are some pics the day after install. Same pics as I posted on CL.

Nice... how much is the drop?

I assume you had a non-sportpackage 350.

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

The drop is about 1.25" on the front and a little bit more than 1" on the rear. The car is an 07 IS350 with premium package. From what I understand, the drop on the sport package is not as much as this.

No offense, but not a big fan of those wheels, the design makes the rims look a lot smaller than actual size, 'cause the end of the spokes are curled in. I love huge lips but don't want to sacrafice the cleanness for deep lips either.
