i just bought those wheels for my is300. I am going to put them on soon, but yes, they will fit the is300, they are the same size and have the same offset. You can also put the 215 tires on if you want.

Yup, some guy just joined yesterday or something. His IS300 has cloth interior, 16" wheels, no sunroof or any other options. To be nice I'll call it the IS300 Race Edition ;)

hey that's me ...:)
+rep if I can (i may be out of rep)

Get the wheels, they look tight. That car for sale is in Seattle and it's IS300Hoon's . They look really good and I considered doing a trade with him plus cash.

I've seen the rims on IS300Hoon's car in real life and they don't look bad at all. Painting them a different color would be cool, of course :)
