Was looking at one of the umpteen 2k3 IS300 brochures on my desk and realized that it seems that you can only get the summer tires on the 17" graphite wheels, and only all seasons on the regular 17" wheels. Now the ? is, has anyone got the summers on the regular wheels or not? If so, at what cost? I don't want to get the regular 17" rims if I have to buy summer tires for it on top of winter rims / tires, so I'd figure I'd ask first.

TIA, :)

I figured it'd probably just be easier if I got the graphites, but just in case they don't have em on hand I thought I could find someone else who negotiated the tire swap, or even a tire / wheel swap.

Now I just gotta figure out if I had it in my quotes to dealers.....

Thanks! :)

that kind of blows that they are putting 17" all seasons on....what a waste.
I would just tell the dealer you want the summer tires and if he wants your business, then he can find a way to make it happen. I don't think they want to lose business over the tires on the car.
