Wheels, Tires, Suspension installed and aligned to spec.
1. Enkei Nt03 SBC 18 x 9.5 +40
2. Bridgestone S-04 235/40/18
3. BC Racing Coilovers
4. OEM Lexus Camber Bolts
These were test fitted before they were mounted. The fronts and rears clear fine. However, there was only about 3mm of space between the rear inner rim and the rear control arm. The fitment is PERFECT. It does NOT protrude out of the fender like VIP style setups and it does not need much camber. I only used two OEM Lexus camber bolts and aligned the car. Camber was evenly at -1.91 in the front. In my personal opinion, the size combo is the best width/offset for an aggressive fitment.
Installation of the BC coilovers were a breeze. I've owned many sets of higher end coilovers and these BC's are a great compliment to our CT200's. Compared to the stock F-Sport suspension, these are slightly stiffer but still VERY comfortable. My wife does notice that it has a sportier ride but still comfortable enough where it did not irritate her. Overall I give these a 9.0 of 10 for comfort.
As for the Bridgestones S-03's, I thought long and hard about these and other low rolling resistance tires. The current set I have on my E92 M3 are Michelin Pilot Sports and these are very comparable in regard to sidewall stiffness. I know that I'll never be tracking the CT200 but but these tires are overengineered for our hybrids. In a nutshell, they perform like my Michelins.
There is ZERO rubbing after 150 miles of driving up and down multiple driveways, dips, u-turns, deficiencies on our Cali roads, etc. Car was lowered with a thumb gap (inbetween 1 and 2 finger gap).
Overall, I am extremely satisfied of the outcome with the mods. I would not have done it any differently. The forum and its member have helped me with my decisions, and I guess this is me giving back. Hope my short review helps a forum member in deciding which route they choose.
