IS 250 with LFA WHeels

I was thinking about putting 19" LFA wheels on my white Lexus IS 250. Does anyone have a pic on how it would look?

I'm curious, Where would you be buying these ''LFA wheels"?

Are you sure you don't mean IS-F wheels?

You should also do a bit more research and figure out what size you actually want instead of starting multiple threads asking how wheels would look. As 19'' rims will give you a completely different ride than the 18'' GS wheels you made a different thread about.

You can get lfa wheels in eBay and I do understand that a 19" wheel will ride different but I'm more worried about the look. That's why I was asking about the different wheels.

I believe the wheels on e-bay are knockoffs. They are the same size as I am looking to run, but due to the width on the rears you would have to mod the body. Fneders need to be wider at least 1.5-2". I am prepping the rest of my car before buying wheels and tires because I want the suspension and brakes to be in place prior to measuring out the wheels for the stance which I am looking to achieve. Goal is R: 19x11 F: 19x9.5
I definitely know that 19x9.5 and 19x10 fits an IS perfectly. Just do your reasearch and do not forget to take into consideration the offset of the wheels which you will be considering of running.

I like the LFA reps, but being replicas, I would personally be weary of defects, etc. (even if they are "manufacturered to OEM specs and TUV, DOT, ISO, VIA and JWL certifications"). I've read on ClubLexus that some members were having issues with balancing due to manufuactures defects...

Don't get me wrong, I really like the LFA style and was thinking about getting these myself, it's just that resale may not be the greatest

I was looking at those wheels too.
OEWheels+ they are 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear for $800 (ebay/website)
Mod Express sells them 19x8.5 for a set of 4 for a $1000 (silver) and I think they charge $250more for black/power coating?
Anyways, the wheels are priced well, but 19" tire$ co$t $, especially the rears
when you got to use 255/35/19 on the staggered set.
I really wish they made them in 18's.

I bought replica ISX50 wheels for my IS300 two years ago from eBay. Not a problem with them what so ever. The only problem you might run into is if you hit a hard bump then the possibility of a warped rim is greater than that of an OEM spec. I paid $950 wheels, Nexan tires, and shipping.

Run it with a fatter tire in the rear then you will get your staggered setup. I have 8" wide wheels with 235 in the front and 265 in the rear.

i have a 245 on there right now
the 265 fits on the 8 inch wheel? the tire shop was telling me the widest you can go on a 8.5 is a 255

Do you have more pics of the LFA rims on a 2IS? What are the specs? Any issues with clearing the IS350 calipers?

No you don't have to roll your fenders if your car is not lower
