i'm buying a set of used winter tires- and not sure if they'll fit- how do i check the offset on a set of rims? they're listed as 205/55/16- i think that's ok, but not sure bout the offset!
anyone? :roll:

Tires or tires and rims?
Rims have offsets, tires do not.
What you have listed is a perfect fit for 16" stock rims.

P.S.
This belongs to tires/wheels forum.

16" is the minimum for wheel sizes for the IS. Any smaller and it will not fit around the calipers.

Be wary of the spoke style/pattern too. For some wheels, if the spokes are too thick or curve inward, they can hit the calipers. I know some people experienced this when they got their first set of winter wheels.

If the seller had an IS, then I would hope that they fit your car too. :)

:lol: I didn't mean it like that. I saw your WTB post and I was under the impression that that guy offering his wheels to you had sold his IS, but was selling you the wheels. Good luck though. :D
