check sites like zilvia etc. they have a huge selection of used 18s and 19s that have a decent width and offset for a relatively decent price, oh and as far as having 177k miles i would definitely check the maintenance records to see when the original timing belt was changed because it might have been 90k miles ago and if thats the case you will have to do it again soon
it says it was done at 107k sticker on the cover
its also leaking.. i decided to take it on. looking like either head gasket or rear main seal..... to much oil to tell. i'm cleaning her off in the morning. im praying its not rear main.. i dont have time to do that right now.
it also has a rough time starting unless i give it some gas, i'm guessing - fuel filter, fuel lines, or injectors.. it will start but then before it even gets to 500 rpm it'll shut off unless i gas it a bit.
so leaking like crazy (just added 5 quarts today) and has a hard time starting. good thing i've got a few grand and some free time this week...
what do you think?

I have Vossen VVS-084's on my IS300 and I honestly wouldn't go any bigger than 19's. I've seen one car have 20's and it looked awful! In my honest opinion I would stick to 19x8.5 and 19x10 for a staggered look and throw on some coils and it would look great, anything bigger would look a little ridiculous on such a compact car and require major fender work. I know my stance isn't where I want it to be but here's what my car looks like with 19x8.5.

Stay with 18s. 18 is the most preferred size for is300. 19s is the size limit but requires a body kit to make it look right in my opinion. I personally like 17s just because you can slam it to the fullest
I have a 02 is300. Planning on putting 18s on it. Don't know what offset I need to go with. I want a wide back wheel with a fat lip and a semi wide in the front. I want to stance it I'm gonna drop it need to find out what size wheels I need to order. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
