Winter Rims?

What setup are you all using for winter rims on an IS350?

Exact sizes / offsets etc. Mainly want to know if anyone is able to do 17" and what are the exact specs to ensure clearance of the brakes.

Posting full rims and tire setups would be great

Technically the IS350 comes with 17" wheels stock. They are the same style as the IS250 AWDs, but staggered. All IS350s come optioned with the 18", I have only seen one IS350 with the stock 17" wheels and I think it was a special order. So yes, you can run 17s on the 350.

Here it is straight for the Lexus site:

I'm going with the sport edition f10 w/black accent, 2nd set of TPMS, & blizzack LM-25's. Summer Rims are 18 but dropping down to 17 for winter. Total set-up $1800.... Not too sure about the offset... I trust the place I go to fit'em right. Good luck on your quest.

What are the offset of the 17 x 8.0 that you are running? Also 17 X 8.0 in the front and rear?

I know that IS300 guys can use Rav4 16" rims. Is this true of IS350's using 17" rav4 rims?
