Aftermarket Wheel Thread

C63 AMG subforum has one. Figured we could put one up too. So how about posting up your wheels. For a better post, please provide the following so there's no repeat of questions like "what size tires?, what size wheels?, etc.. you get the idea.

Wheels:
Size: Include offset, diameter, and width
Tires: Example; 225/40/18F 255/35/18R
Suspension: Coilovers, Springs, Cut Springs, Air Bags, etc..
Modification: Fender roll, fender pull, etc
PICTURES (what this thread should be about)

Brand name provided would be nice.




*EDIT*

Here's mine. Well just a TEASER. Won't be mounting them on until next week though, so y'all have to wait.

Yea technically we do, but that's more of an information on offset and if it'll fit. I'll let the admins decide I guess if they want to join or close this thread.

Haha, I was trying to get a teaser to hide that they look like LMs. Guess I didn't do so well.

All of the above wheels are SICK!

Wheels/Offsets: HRE 840R 19" ET36 8.5" Front and ET44 9.5" Rear
Tires: Conti DW 235/35/19 Front 265/30/19 Rear
Suspension: H&R Sports (The only one for 4matic)
Fender Mod: Shave of a little on the fender lip where it rubs on the rear instead of rolling due to only a quarter inch of material to roll.

Looking real good JCOnizuka!! Nice choice on wheels I say.

Here are my wheels. Came in yesterday. Trying to decide what kind of tires to mount them with.

Wheels: BBS LM 18x9 +42 and 18x10 +50.
Tires: Sizes that comes to mind are 215/40 or 225/40/18 and 245/35 or 255/35/18 to clear fenders. Just undecided on which ones I should get (Any suggestions?). Its a slight stretch, but nothing too big.
Suspension: H&R Coilover (maxed out)
Modifications: Redrilled from 5x114.3 to 5x112. CB honed to 66.6mm.

Probably will need some modification to the fenders.

Thx man. My friend has two sets of the same rim you have for his R32. One with gold center which does not have custom fitment. And the same new set with gunmetal center (to match the body) with custom fitments. As for your inquiry about the tires, Im not quite sure cause Im not a guru on tires. But other members such as jimmythegreek or Hotel have very good knowledge on wheels and tires. They help members out alot. Maybe you should check out the offsets page and go through ALL the pages. Yep I went through ALL of the pages to get alot of insight about the wheels, offsets, and tires which help me decide what I want. Im pretty sure you've been there already but here's the link again https://mbworld.org/forums/c-class-w...ts-wheels.html

Yea, I've messaged jimmy already. Real knowledgeable guy. I have an idea of the tire sizes to get (ones I posted), but I just got done test fitting the wheels. The front seems to stick out a little more and I'm afraid of it hitting the fenders when I turn with 225 wide tires. The tires I were gonna get were either Conti DWS or the new Toyo T1R sport that just came out (could be T1S). I've checked the offset thread. Learned a lot as well. I just wanted to run some wide and aggressive offset which is why I chose these. Hate these high offset on these cars

Here are pictures of the wheels mounted.
