tire sizing won't be any fun running those specs and you will likely need to run spacers anyways.
Assuming the 19x8.5 rear then. Looks like a good option, wouldn't you agree?

I mean, it could work, sure. Not better than alternatives. It's a sturdy, decent weight, cost effective option. I would recommend a ~5mm spacer in the front. You could run stock tire sizes, but the front will be a slight stretch compared to the rear (fairly minor). Ideally you would want to fit a wider front tire if you could (to match aesthetically and to improve characteristics of understeer), but you can't because you would have to upsize the rear to match and 265 is a bit too much bulge on 8.5

FYI, ECSTuning sells these "hub extenders" to enable 10mm (and potentially 12mm) spacers to work: Front Hub Extenders

i have found 12mm spacers that work no problem. But for 10 and 8mm spacers these are interesting. wonder how secure they are.

Update: Returned the Niche Misano back to 1010tires as they really did fit as guaranteed. Thankfully they agreed and took them back even after they had been mounted and driven on for a few days.

After talking with my local shop about what possibilities I had for rims without spending $$$$$$, he got creative. Looking at the specs of the Neuspeed RSE10 he felt that it would work great, fit as I wanted plus they are light!!

Installed last week and I couldn't be happier.

A huge thanks to Alex at Tunerworks here in Calgary for sticking with it for me.

I ran neuspeed wheels on my last car, great bang for buck.

What are the specs though? I don't see anything on their website that would fit without spacers.

Enkei Raijin in hypersilver, 19x8 front and 19x8.5 rear. 5mm front spacer (necessary), and 7mm rear (for stance). Custom center caps, stock suspension on a C450.

What do you mean by fairly low, are you going with springs or coilovers? do you wanna go with 19's or 20's?

I would like to go with 20's. Just found out I cant get the Vorsteiner VFF-102's because of our damn control arm...most likely going to lower the front a bit more.. I am on the H&R VTF springs

You can try vertini rf1.1 they have a similar design. But any wheel with +30 - +32 offsets with or without spacers for the fronts that put you within those offsets with an 8.5" wheel width will work. The rears, +50 - +55 would be ideal but you might still be able to pull it off with +45, and adjust the height. Unless, you have them custom built. If you want a little stretch with 8.5" and 10" widths, you can do 235/35f and 275/30r or 265/30 for more stretch on the rear. But, max is 245/35f and 285/30r, but it won't have the stretch look you might be looking for with your setup. For as long as your f/r ratio is within 3% of the tire diameter you shouldn't have issues with the car being a 4matic.

Good luck! 'Hope this helps!

Bro, the spec illustration in the picture here for C43 is based on what wheel ? coz center to center wheel distance (tread/wheel distance is really depend on the width of the wheel we have. It is shown the front is 1609mm and back is 1546mm, but not sure what tire width is used.

OEM w204 c63 rear wheel 18x9 et 54 with 265/35/18 bolts up fine with plenty of clearance all around. can be pushed out a little more to be more aggressive.

w205 C43 Rear Hub wheel centering surface is about 7mm. There is a 3mm radius and a 2mm taper.The hub extends roughly 12mm from the face of the rotor (3mm radius + 7mm centering + 2mm taper)


iPhone notes




After this I dove more into the sedan buyers guide and I was surprised I found some hopeful information.

The sedan wheels may actually fit!! The oem c63 sedan wheels come in 19x8.5 et 38 and 19x9.5 et 56. This is something we can definitely work with. I also looked at the dimension drawings as well as suspension differences between c300, c43, and c63. I can see why we are struck with bad luck. But with proper wheel fitment, I don't mind having a beefed up suspension.





c63 suspension. Beefy arms but with a larger arc for wheels. end links for anti roll bar in same spot as c300 down lower not up on control arm like the c43.



c300 similar design to c63 just not as beefy and plenty of arc for the wheel.



c43 had bigger control arm but not as much upper control arm arc for wheel clearance. in addition, end link for anti roll bar is attached as well due to AWD. c300 4 matic has similar set up I am sure.



stock tire to c63 oem w204 tire and wheel.



This we know does not fit on the front.



pushing it out 5mm may be the bare minimum to bolt up and fit. May not allow enough room for flex during use.



you can see that the c63 and c43 seem to share the same rear end.



the difference between the c63 and c43 seems to only be the front bumper and fenders. all else seems equal unless there is an underlying change.



the amg sedan wheels from the c63 may work! The rears should bolt up perfect no issue. They may need to be spaced for a more aggressive feel. <br/><br/>The fronts however will require spacers. 5mm may be the most you can do without going to 15mm to clear hub. we will see if that fits. If it does the front would fit with 5 mm spacers and you would be good to go. to match bolts id add 5mm spacers on rear as well and be content with that setup.

Hi all,

I just got a 2018 C43 Coupe two months ago and would like your help. I haven't figured out the offset concept for my winter wheels setup yet. I am curious if you guys know if wheel style 2054012802/A2054012802 (square setup off a 2017 c300) will fit the C43 Coupe with 4Matic? I found a set where a owner upgraded his wheels and I am thinking about using those stock wheels with all season tires as my winter wheels as plug and play.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

2018 AMG C43 Coupe
Hi guys, this thread has been very informative, I'm currently deciding between 2x of wheels for our 2018 C43 Coupe, and from the manufacturer this is what they told me but I feel like it's fake news and want to confirm if it will fit.

Tires for both configs: 225/40R19 & 255/35R19

Config #1:
HRE FF04 - Liquid Metal
Front - 19x8.5 ET47 5x112
Rear - 19x9.5 ET45 5x112
2x 5x112 17mm spacers
Thoughts - This will make the front ET30 @ 8.5" which seems appropriate

Config #2
Front - BBS CIR 2004 PSPO 19x8 ET44 5x112
Rear - BBS CIR 2201 PSPO 19x9 ET42 5x112
2x 5x112 10mm spacers
Thoughts - This will make the front ET34 @ 8" which seems like it will rub?

We sell both the HRE FF04's and the BBS CIR's. The manufacturer's recommendations for spacers is accurate. These two industry giants bring cars in-house & 3D scan them so that they can generate fitments that work for whatever model vehicle they are measuring. If you'd like industry leading pricing and unrivaled customer service give me a holler - [email protected]

config 2 would poke less and look great. i would up tire sizes to 235/40 front and 265/35 rear on either setup. config 1 would most likely look a little far out if not lowered.

But with regards to suspension, fender, and brake clearance you think I'm good with both these settings? Almost everyone won't take back the rims if they don't fit, at least if it's just a spacer issue it's a cheaper fix than buying new rims.

My concern with the BBS is 19x8 ET34 (after 10mm spacer) would rub and wonder if I should go with a 17mm spacer to be safe.

if you read the thread you would see what rubs and what does not. i am the thread starter. I personally run 19x8 et 33 after spacer with 235/40/19 michilin 4s which is the widest tire. it does not rub. take some time to read the thread and youll find answers. the 8.5j wheel has a much higher chance of rubbing than the 8j wheel tucked in more.

Thank you sir, looks like I'm leaning towards the BBS CI-R's!

Last question, do you have any suggestions for Lug Bolts? Our configurations will be similar what length will work with the 10mm spacer? I did some research and the OEM appears to be 27mm so I'll need 37mm length? Do you know what's the maximum/min I can use safely (finding that exact length doesn't seem easy)? Thank you!!

Front would be fine, rear your going to stick out too far.

Depending on your ride height... dropped, you’ll need 10-12mm spacers for the front, rears are fine.
