just depends on your goals and overall look
Understood now, thanks for the information. Trying to learn all of this as quickly as possible, feels like drinking from a fire hose. Appreciate all of yours insights.

They are saying I would need offset in the rear of around 50.

Thoughts on that?
I am running in the rear 19x9.5 with 36 offset and 265x35 tires. It is wider and more agresive looking but does not stick out. I think it's the perfect size combo.

sorry but your set-up looks like it's poking from a profile picture of the car. please show pictures down the side - coupe fitment has only proven to be minorly different

Believe Ive come to an agreement with Discount Tire that Vorsteiner VFF107s will fit.

Fronts are 8.5x30 (edit: based on alexasas post I should maybe go with 35 offset?)
Rears are 9.5x46

Going to let the manufacturer confirm that for me tomorrow when I call them, but my guy was told they were made to fit W205s should should be good in some fitment.


Way more than I intended to spend on wheels, but it is what it is...and hopefully they hold up better than the ****ty AMG cast ones did.

They are right at the edge. I dont plan on lowering the car so I think they are the perfect fit.

Do you think a 9.5 ET39 in the Rear would look bad?

on stock height on a coupe? Probably fine. Lowered on Sedan - probably fine. Stock height on sedan - no.

19x9.5 et45 (rear - pictured below)

lowered gives you ~5mm more play (more depending on how low you go). Coupe fitment is about 5mm more room in general.

I wonder, how about a wagon? More like Coupe or more like Sedan?

Do you think there is any issue upsizing the tires ever so slightly to 235/35-20 & 265/30-20 to go better with wider wheels if necessary?

that would still be very appropriate for 20 inch wheels.

C43 Estate

Check out this guy's wheel fitment on a C43 Wagon.




Fr: 20 x 8.5 ET30
Rr: 20 x 10 ET48

What do you think his tire sizes are?

That would be like running 9.5 et 40 (lowered and tires stretched)

probably stock width 225/35/20 and 255/30/20 (maybe 235/35/20 and 265/30/20)

Some tuners seem to be offering 8J front and 10J rear, would running 225/35/20 front and 265/30/20 rear be okay for the 4wd system?

So basically, this setup is lowered and both tires are upsized (diameter) one step. Correct?

Fantastic. It looks good.

Im getting really close to zeroing in on a set of 20 staggered wheels now.

Front: 8.5 x 20 ET33 235/35-20 (rolling diameter 26.5)
Rear: 9.5 x 20 ET44 275/30-20 (rolling diameter 26.5)

Non lowered suspension.

Do you think the fronts will clear the front strut?

Has anyone fit the 19" forged C63 coupe wheels on a C63 or C450 sedan? The following specs are what I'm looking at:

19x9, et 25, 255/35/19 Front
19x10.5, et 57, 285/30/19 Rear

This would be on stock ride height. I believe the beginning of this post was saying that the coupe wheels are too wide for the sedan. Is that correct?

I believe those fronts won't fit.

thanks. that's what I thought.

Anyone have thoughts on this setup:

Rohana RFX5
19x8.5,et25, 225/40ZR19 Front
19x9.5, et47, 245/35/ZR19 Rear

Tires would be Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3+. Stock ride height. Seems like the tires would be stretched out given same stock width on a wider wheel? This is the "optimal" fitment that the vendor is suggesting though.
