2010 Ls Xfe (suspensioni, Wheels/tires)

I'm wanting to upgrade the suspension and wheels/tires. What is the widest 16 I can put on the car without modification? What springs and struts and stuff is compatible with my model and year? Thanks for all the help....

Are you looking for performance upgrades in the suspension area or are you just looking to lower it? A good strut and shock upgrade is just going to the SS/TC shocks and struts as the handle much better than the base stocks and struts

Well then coilovers would do a great job, but your looking at around $900-$1000 the megan coilovers are something i would look into...but if you dont wanna go that expensive you can still go with the SS/TC shocks struts which will help your handling

as in for struts/shocks... if you don't have money... get 08-09 FE5 shocks/struts... if you DO have money then go with Koni Yellow struts and shocks... for springs if you DON'T got money, go with 2008 FE5 springs, it will lower the car a bit and improve handling by a lot vs our FE1 stock suspension.. if you got money then go with Eibach Sportline springs, it'll lower the car more than FE5 springs and will have a tad better handling

as in for tires, I wouldn't go bigger than 225 width for summer tires, no wider than 195-205s for winter, unless you're planning on doing some crazy driving.
