Default Lexus is250 AWD 20in wheels help!!!?

Okay, so long story short.

I have a friend in another state trying to sell me some wheels and tires.

We both have a 2008 Lexus is250 but mine is AWD.

I asked many places and they say staggered is okay as long as the wheel diameter at the end is really close, such as 1% difference.

The wheels he has are (front) 20x9 235/30 tires and (back) 20x10.5 275/30 tires.

The over all diameter of the wheels is (front) 25.551 and (back) 26.496.

NOTE: the difference is too big in the front and back!!

My question is: should i get the 2 front tires from him (235/30/20) and get 2 new 235/30 for the back?

The front tires still have 85% left.

OR should I get 4 brand new 245/30/20 all around.

Will this fit on my IS? with the original stock springs.

The current stock fitment is 225/45/17.

Please i need a response asap

Your AWD can handle 245s, so I would suggest them all around.

But this will be too big for 20" rims. I would suggest 225/30/R20 or 235/30/R19

Hi messing with different series tyres is not advise able as it alters too many steering parameters and effects the suspension and road holding characteristics
