I think those look nice...the car is goofy as hell and something I wouldn't do but if that is what you're after fine. Are you going with 18"s or 19"s ? What about a spare? No way either of those sizes will fit in the trunk...it was a pain in the ass to get my 17" spare out.

Good luck

Assman Smith- Man I'll bet your ass was in pain! Geez 17 inches OUCH. Those wheels look pretty cool, I would do gun metal and paint the calipers/ red or wheels silver and paint the calipers to matchg body color.

Doug, what does my ass have anything to do with this thread? You need to get a grip on something besides you small penis - we all know the real reason why you bought the vette. Keep the trash talk limited to the threads where it is at already...it is not fair to the guy who posted this topic.

those rims look kinda plain IMO. I would go for a multi spoke look like the Racing Hart C2's, those would look good on your car

Thanks for all the help everyone. Most likely I will get 18"s. I'll probably just get a spare and put it in my garage.

cis300-do you have a link to there I can find those rims you're talking about, thanks.

I love Advan rims. Got Advan touring Cups on my Crx. The ones you want are really nice JChen. i think i may opt for the Racing Hart M5 in 18s. I think 19s would lose to much speed, not that the IS has much of that anyways..

M5! M5! M5!
With a car like Lexus, you want to back it up by buying high-quality, good-name rims like racing hart.


Their M5's (18) will look awesome on a IS300, especially a black one. The 3-pc desing will whoop ass.

JChen, Mike, I have Versus 7 spoke gunmetal rims. They are made by rays, so I guess its pretty damn good! It cost half of the AVS. I got 18's, but now i kinda want 19s. Too bad i spent all my money on it. I have seen black cars with gold rims and they look pretty good. i kinda think that silver rims look too plain now! Colored rims match black cars...(except white), and i suggest you get gunmetal. If i were you i wouldnt buy spares...just keep your normal spare cuz its kind of a waste of money
HRE rims are $$$. The ones on Lexuslovers probably costed a crap load! its nice though

GUNMETAL! doesn't matter what your going for...race or show...white silver and chrome are all played out...IMO gold and bronze are just ugly as hell...so i say gunmetal.
