the smallest rims available for C63 is an 18" and C63's is a 19" do to larger brakes. I don't know if there would be any clearance to go much smaller than that. Rear calipers are 14.2"

On my 512whp/455tq W204 I used 16" clk wheels / 20mm spacers with 225/50 hoosier's, they worked awesome. Think I might try them on the 205, I'm sure they will fit as the new calipers are tiny compared to the 204's.

They the calipers are actually much larger in the distance they stick out when measuring totals diameter of the brakes despite appearing smaller from the front the 16inch clk will will almost definitely not fit.

Good point, now that I think about it more.... the 204 rear rotor is 330mm vs the 205's 360mm....so yea definitely no go.
