It is possible but not advisable. 20" are very heavy and significantly reduce the handling of the car. The less unsprung weight a car has, the better the suspension is able to control the wheels, the faster the suspension reacts, the less intertia there is and the better the car handles.

It may be possible, but you may damage your car, risk bad ride quality and handling. One thing you can be certain of though, it will violate every rule of taste.

20"s, if its done proper will not damage the car. 19" - 20" same wheels, will only differ so much in weight. Just go with the 20"s now, so you wont have to do it again later.

Oh my, that's hot! A little drop and it's perfect. Those might be S550 wheels no? or S55 wheels?

Those wheels are from CL65s and I've planned to get them. I'm just wondering whether they will look too big on a C-class. What do you guys think?
