18" wheels for trackday

I need some help guys. Does anyone know if the 18in wheels from the IS350 will fit on the ISF and clear the caliper? I am going to set up a seperate tire/wheel combo for track days. I just about ruined a set of PS2 All Seasons this weekend

The dealership mentioned they used the aftermarket (F Sport?) rims from the IS-250/350 for mounting winter tires on the F.

Other than that, I used tire rack to find compatible 18" rims for my winters. I ended up with Enkei Imola wheels. AFAIK tire rack is the best place to check fitments because they check calliper/strut/fender clearance on all their wheels for you... provided they carry the brand you want.

I have run for winter G Spider's and X Package rims from the IS250/350 in 18's no problem

Top my knowledge the F-sport will not fit in 18 and 19 in factory off sets. I believe the front spokes will hit the calipers. I will also assume that being race tires you do not want spacers.

The X-package are staggered and the G Spider's I had were not - but they all fit in 18's. You can get G Spiders staggered as well.

Specs
X Package
Size: 18 x 8 inches Fronts & 18 x 8.5 Rears
Bolt Pattern: 5-114.3
Offset: 45 mm Fronts / 50mm Rears
Weight 27.30 lbs Fronts / 27.75 lbs Rears

G Spiders
Size: 18 x 8 inches F/ 18x8.5 R
Bolt Pattern: 5-114.3
Offset: 45 mm F/ 50mm R
Weight 27.65 lbs F/ 28.35 lbs R
Accepts TPMS Sensors

Using the off-sets above are very safe and you will have no clearance issues at all.
