Probably, but 18" is more like it.

Yea, it's a shame a lot of "tuner" wheels are more like, omg look how big a wheel you can fit on this car!

I'll keep hoping but I'm probably stuck with Enkei PF01, my second choice if they don't make these in 17

There is like 0 sidewall on those tires. That is retarded... Might as well put spinners on there cuz it'll just be for show.

I like the BRZ style spoiler a lot more.
Hope that exhaust is available right away !

I was completely turned off by the kit, until I saw the shot angled from the passenger rear corner, made it look alright. Just means I'd probably have to see it in person to really get a good impression of it.

Great pics Ichi

Sorry I have no experience with Scion but I know they offer "aftermarket" upgrades a la carte. Is this kit going to be available as a dealer installed option sometime after initial release?

I agree the kit looks great, but I've decided not to do it.

Primary reason is I don't like that it looks like an obvious add-on. It doesn't blend well into the body at the edges of the kit. I realize this is true with most bolt ons, and that's exactly why I don't like most of them.

I keep putting the stock car on my screen with the modded car, and can't decide which one I like better. Given that, its not worth the price.

The good news is that if I change my mind I can always add it later for the same price.

The kit looks good, but the cheap ass headlights kinda kill it. That is really the only thing holding the FR-S back from looking totally awesome with this kit.

dont know if its just perception or not but the rear wheels look like they have a slight concavity. i looked up the wheels on their site and they have em listed at 19x8.5 +45, but the rear wheels look to either have a wider width of a slightly lower offset
