Default Spacers/stock wheels 2is non f

So i just picked up a 2014 is250 today! non f-sport but im still happy. Now i want to get her down as soon as possible. Leaning toward the Rs*r downs but i dont know what size spacers to go with. I've read up and I see many doing 15mm front and 20mm rear, and others doing 20mm all around. I got a base with 10 spoke wheels, 225/xx/17.

So question is what spacer would be more appropriate, as in i wont have to roll or pull the fenders, after the drop.
Any/all feedback is appreciated. Proud to be a new lexus owner

20mm all around would be good.

Hey I dropped my 2014 IS F Sport with RSR Super Downs. I went with 20 Front and 15 Rear. Rear is perfectly flush. no rub. BUT, I do regret not getting 25 in front. I like the flush looks and the front is a bit tucked in.
H&R Spacers is the way to go.

Do I need spacers if I'm putting RSR Downs on a stock 350 F-Sport?

I got 25mm front, 20mm on back with super downs. I do rub in the front, but the look is amazing. I got circuit sports spacers. All 4 piece for $245 local Socal.

How bad is the rubbing? How frequent?

Just a hiss sound. You won't be able to hear the rubbing with your windows down. It rubs frequently due to road in Koreatown, Other than that, if your at a flat road you won't have any frequent rubbing. Oh and I forgot to mention, I'm down on RSR Super downs

That's good to know! I'm interested in the Downs and I rarely visit Koretown unless it's for AYCE BBQ

So I should be fine with RS*R Downs then?

Oh yea, you should be fine with Downs. If your doing downs, people would probably recommend changing the shoes.

about to order 20mm H&R DRM's. But what is the center/hub bore on this car? 60.1? I'm looking at spacers but the center bore is 66.1

Center hub is 60.1. Look for specific center hub spacers for Lexus.
