I know they are a knock-off of Racing Hart CP035's. They would fit a civic or even wrx fine (stylistically) but an IS? I say keep saving.

I’m of the opinion that besides looks there are three attractive qualities in a wheel. Strength, weight and a low price. One can only have two though. Those that say that rota's last through season after season of auto crossing always have them in a 16 inch or smaller size, keeping weight and chances of it warping and looking like an egg to a minimum.

But hey, it's your car. if you don't plan driving spirited in your car or think 16's look good on a IS and have no problems with putting wheels that cost less than the tires on a sport/luxury car, go for it.

i've tried on sub-zero's from a RSX.....

doesn't look classy at all....looks straight race

i kinda liked them on my msm car....it's you car...but they went with my cf hood


cause the racinghart cp035's are expensive
and the cp035r's are alot more....

i used to have 'em on my accord.

i had 17x7.5 rims and they are very light weight rims, and cheap.
the finish starts to chip off after year or so and then they are easy to bend IMO, but it all depends how you drive though.

i don't think the subzeros will go well with IS300 though... just my personal taste.
