Kinda looks like work vs-xx
I like the style, if you get those rims get at least 18 or 19
smaller size will look cheap & won't look right on is300 in my opinion.

Yeah I would say get at least 18"

I just noticed they are 18x8.5 +30 offset
Wow I think that would be really nice if you slam your car 2 inches at least.

+30 offset is the distance where the wheel bolts to the hub in relation to the center of the wheel. A 0 offset means that where the wheel bolts to the hub is exactly center of the wheel. negative offset is more on the inside and positive is more towards the outside.

i like the wheels but the lip isnt big enough and could be staggered... im not a fan because they dont have a big lip or staggered. but that is your call

yes they will fit. theyre pretty aggressive offset meaning they come very close to the outer edge of the fender. you may have to do a fender roll or run a 225 or 215 tire to make fit.

He might be able to get away with a 245 at stock height if he rolls his fenders.

Yeah 225 or 215 would be best choice,
but if he is stock height he might look like 4x4 status.

stock height with a 225 or 215 would look 4x4 status. and i dont think it will rub on a 245. even without a roll i think it will work
