Is300/gs300 17's On Sc?

Recommended Posts

I'm a fan of factory wheels for several reasons, one of which is that they're cheap. I've read that one or both of these cars use 7 1/2" wide 17's, which should help get rid on the slow transient maneuvers I'm feeling with the stock wheels/tires. Anyone have pics?

I found to my disappointment that there were only a handful of tires for the IS300 17" ers (7.5") that fit the SC and kept the speedo accurate within reason. Also, the GS400 rims are wider @ 8", they will hold a much wider array of tires, though you will pay more for them, especially in chrome.

Have you actually seen a full set if IS 17x7.5's for sale? The printout I got from the dealer shows that only the fronts are 7" and the 7.5's are optional for the rear, so the likelyhood of finding a used set of four 17x7.5" is pretty slim.

Something is way off with that dealer. The IS does not have different width tires Frt/Rr. You can search and confirm this easily. Yes, I have purchased set of the 7.5", however, I sold them after confronting the pathetic tire choices.

I have IS300 17" on my car, I think it looks good, I can get some pics of it if I can get the digital camera working. Dunno anything about replacements or how accurage the speed is though, just got it. :D

I found this on a different site. I'm not quite sure if they're IS or GS wheels, but to be honest, they don't really do it for me. They look a bit too "Sport Compact" for an SC, IMHO.

I've got the IS-17's on my SC, they have the polished lip & spoke border but I cannot figure out how to get pictures from camera to computer & to here.
