So I got a deal on 4 chrome is300 rims, they are 10 spokes and came on the later models and a lot of sport designs. The tire siZe on there now is 215/45/17, and my 2004 es330 is 215/60/16. Since I need to buy all seasons for the car anyways, I figured id use these wheels as well. I used a tire siE calculator and if I get a 215/55/17 tire it will be almost exactly the same as the 215/60/16. The question I have is will I need a spacer or anything to use these wheels? I imagine they have the same specs as the 5 spokes people put on the 98-01 Es's, but I'm not sure about the 4th gen. ES. Also, do you guys have any suggestions for a certain tire? We have michelines mx4? I think on our 2012 and those are exactly a 216/55/17, but extremely pricey. Any input would be great. I did use the search function but couldn't find anything on is300 wheels on the 4th gen ES.

So there's been a change of plans, I'm going to use the tires I have from my gs300, 225/55/16 and going to put them on the es330. The gs wheels are really knackered so they will be designated for snow tires and I'm going to buy a set of 225/50/17 for the wheels are use them on the gs. Will a 225/55/16 clear the strut on the Es? Feel like it will I just want to make sure as the regular size is 215/60/16
