Mine are RPM 505R's. You can find them on E-bay.

18x8 front and 18x9 in rear.

38mm front, 38mm rear.

235's in front and 265's in rear. According to seller, the 275's would fit rear, but lip must be rolled.

I did not want to roll anything, so I went with 265 Falken 512's.

Car needs to be lowered though, which looks like you did already. I ended up lowering the car 2" front and 1" back.

My rims are 18/10.5 or and tires 275/35/18z. The lip needs to be rolled with 285's just for the record...I squeezed these 275's without curling the lip...Also I too have the one inch Eibach spring drop...I needed to use these 3/4 inch rear wheel adaptor spacers to get the offset just right to fit these tires and rims. Here are the pics and these are the fattest rims and tires you can mount on the sc's without doing any alterations of the wheel wells and fender lips... Oh and I think 18/7,8, and even 9 size rims are two skinny and you will have regrets later on down the road, I know I did....

The spacers I got are the best spacers money can buy at ($150) for two spacers.. Not cheap but very very good spacers. I had used spacers that failed without the center hub lip... The key is getting longer studs if you can't get more then 6 full lug nut turns when mounting your rim. Longer wheel studs provide more thread grab for the lug nuts, that is something you need to watch when using wheel spacers. This inturn creates more strength if your using a cheap loose no hub lip type spacer... That is my experience with spacers over the years... I think I have some pic's...Good luck..

Kragen auto parts sells longer wheel studs for the Lexus cars at $3 each...
