Buy a set of 17 x 8 IS(250/350) rims as the offset, centre bore, wheel nuts etc are correct, they are staggered tyres (front 225, rear 245 on 8 inch rims). Follow the picture below for what fits and still handles well. Max width for the front is 225/45 and the rear just rubs sometimes with 245/45, this is for a standard IS300 body. Can't have more offset on the front as rim will be on the suspension, can have a bit more offset on the back, but will be difficult to find rims with more offset than the Lexus ones. Wrong width rubber on the rim gives poor handling as does too much offset.

Hey guys, I would like to run 235/45/17s up front but am conscious that they are 25.33 inches tall and the safe/good limit is known to be under 25. I can see that a 235/40/17 would be 24.40 inches tall, and is my backup and safer option.
The wheels will be 17x8 fronts with +38 offset and my...
Front: 235/45-17 Bridgestone RE71R (a brand new almost R compound tire to replace the RE-11a)
17x8 Supra wheel, +50 offset
Rear: 275/40-17 Nitto NT05r Drag Radial
17x9.5 Supra wheel, +50 offset
Fronts required removal of the little nub on the spindle for clearance. Rears required a 1/4" trim...
