Here's the drop!



Here's a video too because the black rims make the picture kind of hard to see the drop.
(I have to clean the car/tires, a day in the shop and plastidip isn't ideal for a white car lol. Might need spacers, but i think i'll just wait until i get wheels)

I recommend you add fog lights, 17" wheels, and an HID retrofit. Those coils are going to make it look sweet. Lets see pics with the grille on too. That SE grille is my next mod as well as the tails.
I bought it with 55k miles. I think i might go with 19" wheels because that's the smallest that the Stance SC 5ive wheels come in. But there is still a lot of time to think about which wheels to get. Fog lights/HID retrofit may come within a month or two since my current HIDs are starting to fade a bit. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll add them to the "Future Mods" list.

It does look a little cheap, but it's an alternative until i can get my wheels. They look a little better now that they have a couple coats of metalizer on top of the plastidip.

Lighting is bad. Take some pics on a bright day to get good effect. Grille looks way better though.

Will do. it's pretty cloudy right now. I'll take another one a little later.

Edit: My two friends want to do a photoshoot. We'll have the cars clean/waxed and take pictures with a high quality camera. Hopefully by the end of the week i'll post some better pictures!

Yes, better pics are in order!

So, were the fenders rolled? Hopefully.

I would not waste money on wheel spacers... money that should be put to new wheels!

I'll take better pictures tomorrow morning!

And the fenders actually weren't rolled. My guy test drove it after the drop and he took sharp turns and steep dips and we didn't hear any rubbing, he said it should be fine since the wheels aren't too far out and are tucked in. But i'm going to wait for the coils to settle before concluding that i won't need to roll em.

Dont worry! I'll have these babies at the end of January I'm not sure what size to go with.

All four wheels: 19 x 8.5 + 35. 235 tires. Any input? I will DEFINITELY make sure that this fitment goes on perfect, i'll buy spacers/extended lug nuts if needed.

Don't buy spacers, just buy the right offset. And I meant that you will need fender rolling to get the wheels to look flush.

Oh yea, when i get my wheels i will make sure everything is how they're supposed to be. And the problem with offset is that i don't know which one to get. +35 seems to be what most people on here are going with.

I drove to a park near my house specifically for you guys to get better lighting lol. I think these pictures should suffice until i have my "real" photo shoot within a week.

Looks good! Will definitely take it to the next level with flush aftermarket wheels (not black though).

Anything lower would work, there are several tire&offset calculators online to figure out your wheel poke. 25-30 should fit flush with fender mods. On my IS, the stock wheels are 50, and I've now got 26 in the back and 31 in the front.

Thanks! And yea, i won't get black wheels, i won't even consider it.

According to Stance they only have +15 and +35 offset options on 19x8.5. (the matte black machined is the same wheels that are on the g37). The 19x9.5 have more offset options, +20 might work but 9.5 might be a bit thick.

I'm also interested in MB Battles, but i would rather go with the Stance SC wheels. There's still a couple months before i make a decision though.

looks good bro, I'm currently on 18x8.5 +35 and my fronts rubbed and it ate the tires a little bit, and my back rear right rubbed because the right rear wheels stick out more on all camry's. But +35 is still kind of flush, but next year I'm going to get fender work done and probably going with 18x9.5 +30. BTW how do you like the ride? Its nice right? lol

Thanks, I'm still getting adjusted to the need of crouching low to get into the car. =P

If i got +35 in the front and +15 in the rear would i still be able to rotate the tires? I think if i get +15 in the front i might rub quite a bit since my stock wheels are already pretty close to the fender on the front.

And it rides pretty good, i defeinitely feel the difference but that might only be because im trying to notice how it feels. I didn't tell my brother that the ride was supposed to feel a little different with the coils. After i got home i asked if he felt anything different and he said he didn't, so it might just be in my head. All in all im extremely happy with em.

Well if the wheels are only offered in 35 and 15, I'd get the 35. See how that is, you can always add spacers if you have to.

On concave wheels would a +15 offset make the rims look like they are more "concaved" compared to +35?

Because spacers would simply make the wheel stick out a little more towards the outside of the car. Is that correct? Sorry, this is the first time I'm purchasing wheels and i don't want to mess up on a $2,000 expense.
