Question CLS wheels and off sets.

I have a 2006 CLS now and am planning on buying a 2013.
Are the wheel sizes, offsets, and backspacing similar across the years?
Can I take my 2006 after market wheels and bolt em on to the 2013?

I'm interested in this as well. I'm going from a 2008 to a 2012 or '13 and I want to take my oem 18's with my snow tires on them with me.

Here's another bump.

Does anyone ever respond on this site? It's frustrating.

My 2009 factory offsets are 28mm, front and 33mm, rear. The Sport pkg models are 25 and 28. Same wheel dia and width.
I have not found a reference that gives alternate offsets, however, The Tire Rack site does give alternate diameter wheels for specific models. The offsets for those wheels are listed. http://www.tirerack.com/content/tire.../homepage.html.
The 20" staggered wheels listed there, for my car, have 30mm front and 35mm rear offsets. For a 2013, the 20" wheel offsets are 35 and 44.
The body changed in 2011 to the C218 chassis. I expect it would be likely that you will get some rubbing if you put a 35mm offset wheel on a car that was designed for 44mm. Especially if you lower the car.

Check the C218 forum. There is some discussion regarding lowering modules there and they seem to like:
