Hi, I'm still a noobie with this kind of stuff but
I have Stock lexus is300 wheels and i dont know which tein springs came with the car but its like a aprox 1.3-1.5 inch drop all around.
I want to get some wider tires on my stock rims. Whats some of the tire specs I can go with. 215s look skinny in width. Id like something wider.
I also have +3 people often in the car not including myself. If i got some wider tires will it start rubbing and do i need to roll the fenders?
and another thing is my Left- Rear wheel is starting to squeak when the car goes. The squeaking is gone when i press the brakes, but when i do step on the gas again or just let the car roll i hear the spinning squeaking sound .
Anyone have an idea of what that is?

I've seen a lot of people run 225/45/17 on moderately dropped IS300s. Some have gone 235 in the rear, but i'd say thats the max that could fit on our stock rims. I cant say for sure if it will rub or not with a full load of people in your car though. I considered 225s myself when I picked up latest set of tires.
on a side note though, not sure what tire you are looking for but i just recently found a place in socal (im in no way affiliated to them) and I got a full set of 215s hankook ventus v12s for 410 balanced and mounted. for 225s it would have been like 20-30 dollars more i think.
