4 x oem 2008 lexus is250 wheels 7.5/10cond
17x8" 60.1mm centre bore
5x114.3 bolt pattern
All 4 centre caps included

4 x oem lexus tpms sensors

4 x 205/50/17 brand new federal himalaya ws2 winter tires

Professionally mounted & balanced
I'm trying to do the same. But I would watch out. The IS has a higher offset and wider wheels. With 10mm higher offset and 0.5" wider wheels, The wheel will go ~17mm towards the knuckle. Check that there's plenty of space behind the wheel right now, even while turning otherwise you need spacers. The tires and TPMS will need changing. I would run 225/65/17 tires.

I did your exact set up with the Yokohama parada. 255/45/20. Thanks for the tip. It helped me decide on size and tires.

The wheels are something I sadly don't think I can touch given that I got the mudguards. However, when I see the amount of rock nicks and hear the amount of rocks hit them when I drive, I'm happy I got them.

Anyone with mudguards swap wheels yet? I'm looking for a side profile to see how wide you can go without going beyond the guards.

I had the mudguards from day one. Setup I have is maxed relative to the mudguards. Anything more aggressive and you're sticking out.

Running 255/45/20 rubber on 20x8.5 +35.

Awesome! thank you

How are you on clearance with the shock and springs? I know with my Camaro, running a 20x9 +20 with a 275/40/20, I am VERY close to rubbing.

What's the offset on the stock wheels? Can't seem to find that anywhere.

No rubbing whatsoever.

Agree, I haven't seen it anywhere myself.

I have a caliper so I'll measure and post. Stay tuned!

Found this awesome wheel/tire calculator online. Does a great job of doing pretty much everything you could ask for: http://www.wheel-size.com/calc

Default OEM F Sport Wheel Specs including offset

^^^It's a great calc!

So here are the OEM F Sport wheel specs!

18x7.5 +35

It's stamped in the wheel! And reason I know the 35 is the offset because I compared to my IS wheels that I know as a fact that have a 45 and 50 offset and they have the same stamping in the wheel.

255/40/19
rear
19x9.5
275/35/19

does it make sense?
