Hey guys, I have an IS350-Non-F-Sport. I want to get wheels and tires and without lowering the car I want the wheel well to be filled in nicely. What size wheels and tires do you guys suggest?

You're going to have a pretty large wheel gap regardless of what profile tires you buy unfortunately. =\ It might actually look worse in the end imo.

Default Need to Lower

If you dont lower you will be very dissapointed with how it looks. just keep the stock wheels on there instead and spend your money elsewhere. I was uber paranoid about lowering my car but was conservative and went with the rsr down springs. makes a huge difference in the look of the car, didnt cause any problems and i couldnt be happier. Only difference is that the car rides more like a sports car which is fine with me.

I'm still interested in seeing some 18" wheels with much more aggressive offsets. I don't have much urge for 30lbs wheels. Something that looks like OEM, but better. I can't lower my car though. I already scrape on some not that steep approaches.

Still, some very nice looking cars here.

Wheels with more aggressive offsets than stock ones look pretty ugly without lowering. Here are 18x8 +48 with 15 mm front / 20 mm rear spacers:

The offsets are rather extreme fo 3IS and wheels look stunning )
What about rubbing issues?
