If you move down to the 17" wheel, the 50mm offset or the 45mm offset will be very safe and you will not have to worry about any rubbing.My wife's 2007/205 IS came with chrome 18" factory wheels and I hate them. In fact I hate the car, but that is another story. I want to replace the 18" wheels with some Lexus OEM 17" wheels, but am thrown by offset. IS has 45mm and some other Lexus models with 17's have 50mm and I do not know if that means the wheel would move out or in by going from 45 to 50mm
I also would like to know on the 17" what would be biggest tire I could run without doing anything to fender. I would like to go to a 55 if possible in order to improve the ride. Car is mostly driving around town by little old lady and handled cautiously so am not interested in high speed tires or handling capability and thanks for any help you might give an old fart like me.
Did your car come with 17" wheels? I don't know about where you are from, but here in California, all of the RWD ISX50's come with 18" wheels.Hi, newbie here.
I have a stock IS 250 RWD. I was told if I put an 18" in that, it could create problems because of my stock suspension. Is that true?
