Another wheel question thread

For those who have more experience in the wheels part, please give me some advice

My is250 will be arriving early May and I was just wonder if these wheels will fit/look good??
If im not mistaken, the OEM is 18x8 offset +40
these GGames are 19x8 +42
Pretty similar, other than the diameter of the wheel.

My car is a RWD, sooo..... will the 19x8 look funny? will it work? (i know it will work... but is it a waste of time? or should i just sell and save up for a new set of wheels?)
ps: my very first set of wheels and i do like em alot :P
Your input is very much welcomed!

They'll fit but you'll have to add spacers. I had 19x8 on my IS250 but it was awd so I couldnt go staggered. My rims are +35, I had 5mm spacers on the rear and was considering throwing the 5s on the front and getting at least 10s for the back...

Long story short, buy spacers if you decide to run these. Or go staggered for best fitment since its RWD.

if you change your rims.. you will want to drop your car.. you drop your car, you may void your warranty.. so just wait until you have all the funds and do it right the first time ;^)
