What is the offsets on the rims? Because it's a sportmax, I'm guessing that you'll be going with a +35 front and rear? If so, I would go with a 215/40 front and 225/40 rear.

Some people put 225's on 7.5, but IMO thats too wide of a tire. But its really up to you. You shouldn't go bigger than a 225 in front though.

The sportmax 006's aren't that bad. There was a picture of a candy red IS300 on here with those rims on. I'll see if I can dig it up for you.

here I found it. But it doesn't show any far-away shots. Just up close, and one angel from the front.

But his size are bigger than yours. He is running 18x8.5 in front and 18x9.5 in the rear. THe rear fender is pulled and shaved.

with 2k that should be enough to get some nice staggered wheels... remember you're gonna need to grip if you're going boost... what you can do is buy the wheels first then the tires so it doesn't hurt your pockets as much... FYI i would look for rear offsets of +50 to +55 ;)
