what i was stating before was there was not that much info for me to base what i was about to do to the car at the time for me to correct what i have done. If i would have known the right ways i could have saved myself some time. But then again it didnt take much time to get to where it is now. its just taking more time to do something new.

Putting stickers on fake wheels to pass them off is the same as a girl rocking a fake Gucci or a Lamborghini kit car or some fake Jordan's. If you can't afford to play then rock the lower end brands and stop playing yourself.

information was around, it was just kept through word of mouth... most people dont like posting information that would help everyone else out on the forums because...
1.) it starts getting frustrating explaining to people who know nothing about it and want just want to learn "just because"
2.) its time consuming on your part and you dont really get much out of it
3.) most people want to keep secrets to keep their cars "one of a kind"

i know some may not agree to it but you've got to understand some people just dont want to be copied especially after you go through the hassle of trial and error.

Guessing you didn't roll your fenders for this setup?

I am thinking of this setup on my IS300 - VS-XX
18x8.5 FR - 225/40/18 + 50
18X10 RR - 255/35/18 + 38 (I know the tires is a bit big)

With size and the offset of the rims, will I need to roll my fenders to make it flush - Keeping in mind, currently I have Eibach Prokit (1 inch drop only).

Any feedback would help! Thanks!

Front will not be flush at all. You need closer to a +30 to be flush with an 8.5 with a 225/40/18. You could really go down to a +15 or so if you ran a 215/40/18.

Rear will be decently flush, mainly due to the tire size.

If you keep the 8.5 +50 you'll have to run at least a 5mm spacer to clear the suspension. You might have to roll the fenders a little.

Rears will need to be rolled for sure.

^ He right....no way u can get +50 in the front, it will rub the inner. U need a bolt on spacer like +15mm then get 215/40/18 or 35 series...then ur front will look sick, only need to roll a bit and take out the liner
For the rear, u need to run like 245 or 235 (like me), then go about 8mm - 10mm spacer, fender will need to roll flat.
This is talking about if u go like 1.8" - 2" drop and atleast -1 Camber Front and -2 Rear...ur 1" drop right now..u probably dont need to do anything at all, just need to spacer the front for the suspenson clearance.

But if u dont plan for change the tires at all, just drop it more...run spacer in the front like 10mm - 15mm bolt on one and u good. Same as the rear, with that tires, +38 offset, u good too, it just that u wont be that flush and meating tires no stretch at all

If u stretch as much as my rear, pull the fender like ALOT, then u might get it work on the front....the rear is the easy part.
And u cant drop more that 2", otherwise u will break ur fender turning the wheel
