What is a good tire size for 17x8 & 17x9 wheels? Looking for a slightly stretched look. I’m thinking about putting the 17x9 in the front. Thank you

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.
