Yeah, the 18" MSW wheels I have for my snow tires just barely clear the front calipers. Thankfully the Tire Rack could recommend wheels that fit.

Does anybody know what the stock offsets are on the F? This seems to be pretty difficult information to get. I don't know why I can't find it anywhere in Lexus's specs.
