I've read a few different articles from OZ and Europe regarding the 2012 updates to the IS-F. I can't post a link because I haven't met the min posting requirement but do a google search and you'll find it.

A couple of things to highlight.

1. new wheel design (and I love it. It reminds me of the BBS Ch wheels.)
2. front wheels are now 8.5 vs 8 inches wide
3. apparently, it now comes in a new est red and a new grey color. I'm not sure if this is saying it's because OZ and Europe don't have these colors yet but we'll have to wait and see if this is referring to the MR and SGM or if these actually are new colors.
4. new interior red color
5. shocks have been tuned by sachs

That is awesome that they are going to put on .5" wider wheels front and rear. This means that you could put a 255/35R19 on the front without any problems. It is slightly wider than the recommended width, but there would probably be no problem throwing a 295/30R19 on the rear as well. I just need to see the design now.

^^^^Grasshopper, your wish is my command! And yes, if there is enough clearance 295/30 and 255/35 should work. I'm running 285/30 and 245/35 with the '08 wheel.

Hmmmmm seem to have that universal tuner lug look in the center. i think im a fan of the 11 wheel better but I like my 08s above all. I think the asemetrical thing is just a good thing. OEMs just dont invest like that in the details these days.

I like it A LOT...maybe not as much as the 08-09 wheels, but I'll take the extra width any day. I wonder how much I would have to pay a 2012 owner to swap wheels with them?
