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.

I agree with vis250p, 17's or 18's.. lots of good wheel options too with those sizes.

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
