I recently acquired a set of IS F Sport Rims (18x8, 18x8.5) and want to put them on my ES300h. How do I figure out what tires to use to maintain the front diameter. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That calculator is really handy. Thanks. Yes. I am trying to maintain the same diameter up front while maintaining a subtle stagger out back. I settled on a 235/45/18 up front and a 255/45/18 out back. Now if only Coscto will mount them.
Thanks all. I went with a 235/45/18 front (same diameter as stock 215/55/17) and 255/45/18 rears, just a 19mm larger diameter rear, but an inch wider. Got my F Sport badges on my fenders and I'm good to go. Maybe now Lexus will put out an ES F Sport.
The ride compared to stock is excellent. Better road feel and not to much "buick" release in the wheel, The MPG change, however has been three miles. Exactly. I was getting 36.x (low) with the stick tires and 33.x (low) with the wider tires. Now if I can only get the other drivers of the car to stop hitting curbs. The wheels need to be touched up with paint shop quality paint.
Highly worth it, never got a second look with the stockers. Novw everywhere I go, I get compliments.
