Tested out the rear F-Sport wheel of an IS250/350 with 255/35R19 on it. Fits like a glove, just as I thought it would.
There is actually a ton more space for wider, but anyone looking for an OEM type wheel and a good wide, forged wheel, these should be highly considered! You'll need new front center caps though, or remove them as the half shafts stick out too much...but really, thats it.
Oh ya, and even though the picture is only of the rear wheel on the rear of the car, it does fit the front and does the lock-to-lock without issue! You'd want the 19x9's all around.
I for one coulda used it. Regardless of look. Mine isnt a show car so function over looks for sure! And Rain-x doesnt always work!
Neither is mine, but I never use it regardless. I don't see the point to it. Honestly, as I said, rain, sleet, snow, dirt, no matter, I will NEVER turn mine on. Its guaranteed to scratch the glass.

Probably could, but it wouldn't be forged. These are about $500+ USD each. Considering Volks and other inflated cost wheels are almost a grand a wheel, thats not bad for a wheel that weights only 21lbs for a 19x9.
By chance, did you take a picture of the wheel on the car from the back? To see how it sticks out (if it does at all). Or a picture from the front?
I'm kicking myself for not doing it, but I can say in the front and rear there is about 1/2" of clearance between the tire edge and inside fender lip. Depending on how the car cambers with being lowered, that could be greatly increased.
I'm planning 9.5" wide now myself with a 255/40R18 all around.
^Good choices. The PS2's are a great tire, but a little costly. The one benefit is they are non-directional, so you can rotate them without taking them off the rims.
The new F-Sport wheels are the same specs as the one I installed. You'll have no issues fitting rears all-around. The 245/35R19 tire works too but you could do 255 if you wanted. The tire on the one I mounted was 255/35R19. Your speedo might be out 0.1%, which isn't enough to even care about.
