These look to be the same wheels as used on the FR-S Release Series 2. If so I hope Toyota have fixed the issue with the finish clear coat peeling off over time.
I have a set with bad finish I use for my winters. (Not that the car has ever seen bad weather.) Thinking I'll have them re painted in black metal flake to match the paint on the tS when I get around to buying new rubber.

AFAIK Toyota did not fix the issue with the RS2.0 black wheels. The peeling is due to them using physical vapor deposit to attain the black mirror finish. From what I've read, this is not a durable finish and also used in jewelry that have flaking issues as well.

Your best bet would be to get the same wheels in gunmetal finish wish does not have any peeling issues, is also forged and weighs the same, and cheaper to boot. However, I'm not sure its availability outside of usa because i know you can't get them through a canadian dealership

Part number ptr2018160bk for the rs2.0 mirror black one with peeling issues
ptr2018160gr for the gunmetal forged ones offered as an addon upon vehicle purchase in the USA

Always trying to improve my shifting and I have a question around coming to a stop in-gear.

For safety and wear (brakes) reasons, I do not coast into a stop sign. My typical method now when coming to a stop from around 50mph

5th, 4th, 3rd; roll to a stop in 3rd till around 900rpm then push in the clutch. This puts me around 10-15 mph.

Is anyone downshifting all the way to 2nd before a stop? Seems excessive, but maybe I am being lazy.

I engine brake as much as possible. If there are cars behind me, I'll just use 3rd to get down to about 1k rpm. If there is no one behind me, I'll use 2nd from around 20 mph down to around 10 mph or so.

I'd rather wear out my Brakes (cheap) than any associated Clutch/Trans parts (expensive).

Engine braking is not going to hurt the transmission, IMO. Automatics do it already, you just do not notice.

The idea is you let the engine rev-down AND brake.

Only way I really see any excessive wear on the trans is if you don't rev match when downshifting.

It's not a sequential box so no need to go through all the gears. I often do 3-1 shifts on at the end of short straights into hairpins.

I share this sentiment. If I'm coming to a stop sign, I'm doing so in neutral. No reason to engine brake if you're coming to a complete stop. As above, I'd rather put heat and friction wear on the system designed for that exact purpose

Why is pad braking and engine braking mutually exclusive?

“Engine braking occurs when a driver takes their foot off the throttle. The throttle valve closes, a vacuum forms and the engine slows the car down. This is the same case in a manual transmission. It’s often been rumored that engine braking is bad for your car, but it can actually prove beneficial, as Fenske explains in the video.”
