Depends on the year.... '92s started out as 15 inch. Not sure when the "stock" wheel went to 16 inch. I would not recommended 17s only because the tire selections can be limited. 18 is a better choice. 19s and 20s come with other challenges driven by the fit one may be looking for....

Figured out what wheel style I want and I found them in:

18x8.5 +30 Front
18x9.5 +35 Rear

My suspension is stock at the moment, do you think this set up is doable? I figure I may have to roll my fenders.

I don't think you'll rub at all with stock suspension.

It's definitely the tires, with 50 tire profile on rears and 45 on front, yeah they look goofy. I'm getting some 245/40/18 soon for the rears, hopefully that'll make it less goofy for ya

What are the offsets? I do not like 17s.... If you are going to go for larger wheels go to 18s at least. Hub rings are problematic, too, so likely these are 70mm where the small Lexus hubs are 60.1mm (and a hub ring is recommended but there is a lot of discussion on which ones work best and are safe). I'd keep looking but research the offsets to get the fit you want.

Looks like I'll be going Enkei RPF1's 18x9.5 +15 on front and rears with 245/40/18. Do you guys think I could squeeze 250/40/18 on the front and rear for beefier tires? Also, will I clear with just rolling my fenders all around?

What are the biggest drag tires the SC300 can fit without fender modifications? I see that on the first page it looks like 245 front and 265 rear, but that's with 18s. I'm looking at MT ET Street tires in 15" and 16" sizes. I'm assuming wheel size effects that but I don't know much about this stuff. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is my setup.
Wheels : LM Reps
19x8.5 F +15
19x9.5 R +20
215/35/19
245/35/19

Front and rear fenders are rolled. Depending on the rim choice, 19s can look big or just right. My LM reps and real things like BBS or Works have a step lip. So 19s look more 18s with the step lip type. 19s without a lip can look pretty big on the car. All depends on your style. 19s with a staggered setup with the right offset looks pretty mean. My offset sits pretty flush with the fender. If you go big and low you will have to roll the fender and run a stretched tire. So think about ride and performance loss possibly in order to achieve the look you want. I personally wouldn't run anything smaller then 18s, but tend to lean toward 19s.

Did you mold your rear bumper into the quarter panel?
