istatic Posted September 25, 2019 Share Posted September 25, 2019 The wheels on my 2012 IS 350X have sadly developed so much gutter rash that i had to get a quote to repair and repaint them....Yikes ! Its been suggested that for a few more $$$ i could fit new wider rims.I've been looking at many brands and styles but i most like the look of the Work Emotion CR Kiwami. The problem is i cant find anywhere that definitively tells me what offset will be suitable for my car,and the places that sell them are only online for me here in Brisbane. I've spoken to them on the phone but they don't offer information on suitable fitments. Its all your own risk.... and at a couple of grand for a set of rims ,its a big gamble to order a set and then be stuck with them if they don't fit. They did suggest i take it somewhere and have it measured.So i took the car to two places i thought might be familiar with this issue .. but it was obvious they would only be guessing and didn't have any set procedure for determining what offsets will fit my car As the IS 350X has the bigger caliphers on the front ,comparisons with other models with the smaller caliphers is no use at all either. I was looking at a set of 18 x 9.5" ET +30 to maybe +38 . I also realise i could opt for an offset closer to the original +45 on the fronts and +50 on the rears ...but i kinda like the look of the concave rims and high offsets just arn't going to do it. Is there any information out there (or in here) regarding width and offsets that will suit my vehicle or could people let me know what offsets work on their car providing they have the bigger caliphers as per the Fsport or the 350X MODELS My car is stock height and i have no intention of lowering it so guard clearance should not be a factor. I have one other question about stretching tyres ...but i'll leave that for another post. Any advice would be most appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
