If you're really set on those tires, i would go down to a 225.

If you wanna keep staggered setup, you need different wheels.

Thanks kayotik. I have seen through this thread all brands of tires mentioned. What is good all season tire and how do I go about finding out about a tire's compound? I read about Dunlop, Bridgestone, and BF Goodrich more than others but there are so many other brands... what makes one brand/tire superior when compared to others?

What is your main objective? Better handling or longer life? Or a balance between the two?

Better handling, I would go Michelin Pilot 2's ($$$) or Falken Azenis Ft615 ? ($$)
Longer life, I'd go Falken FK452($) or Falken Ziex 912's($) or Toyo Proxes 4 ($)
Balance of both... I personally really liked the Nitto NT555($), but you can also check out BFgoodrich Sport tires ($).

It will work fine. But will definitely change the way your car handles.

Hi guys,I'm new here, just planning to buy a set of 4 Konig Runaway wheels, same size for front and rear since it's a daily use car,. Wondering if they fit 2009 IS250 RWD with stock suspension. Thank you very much for answering.
17x8 35offset 225/45/17 OR
18x8 35offset 225/40/18
any fender roll here?

They will fit with no fender mods, but you may want to get a staggered setup because the car was "tuned" to run staggered.

Thank you kayotik. I have one more question: how to determine if it clear the front brake calipers or not. Becuz a guy said the 18x7.5 38offset enkei EDR9 wont clear the front calipers. Is he right?

He may be speaking of the IS350 with it's larger brake caliper. It really depends on the face of the wheel. Try asking another wheel shop to see if it will fit.

19x9 +29 and 19x10 +24 in rear. Going on an IS350

I know the rear will fit with fender modification but much modification do I need?

Will the front fit with no problem? Im planning on 225/35 in front and 245/30 in the rear.

Thanks in advance.

Your fitment is so aggressive and so close I can't give you accurate information. Did you ask the shop if the wheels will clear your brakes in front?

I didnt buy the wheels yet. A local member is selling the wheels. The wheels are SSR Professor ms1. I know a few is350 is running that setup but wasnt sure what mod was done to make it fit.
