Yeah I ordered a custom plate, it took about 2-3 months to finally get it.

Ha! Clever. Though it makes me wonder what you'd consider a good V8...
(But I guess the obvious answer is an AMG...)

The one I ordered won't make sense to anyone but me and the one other person in the world who I came up with it with back in Jr. High. But it's what I've wanted since then so it fills the little pre-teen in me with joy.

Most recent one (taken a couple hours ago). Had my car dynoed and it put up seriously disappointing numbers. =\ I'll post them on my thread tomorrow after I scan it. (Yup, still have that ugly orange rhombus. For now.)

I have been searching for front bumper canards like these for a pre-facelift w212 on line and can't locate a US seller that carries them. Any ideas?r[img]webkit-fake-url://c5ffedfc-71c5-433a-82db-260ded5ffff6/imagejpeg[/img]

Sport Wagon on VMR V710

A pothole ate one if the AMGs (none were perfect) so it was cheaper to replace them all. I almost feel like I should thank the pothole....

Finally put the winter shoes on. Was pretty sure the RWD with summer performance tires wasnít going to bode well when the snow finally hits today.

Your car looks amazing!

Question - You have 18x8 wheels with 35 offset. I just picked up some wheels with that same setup but I'm being told by some respectable individuals in this forum that 245/40 is too big for the wheel and I'll experience possible sidewall roll. The claim is that I should stick to 235/40.

​​​​​​I am seeing your setup now and that's EXACTLY what I want to do. Do you have any issues with your tires/wheel set up? I have a 2010 e550 4matic. I don't think that matters but thought I'd bring it up regardless

Thanks! Iím responding to your PM as well but wanted to add some search-ability and content for the forum. I have/had zero issues with the wheel ET or the tire size on my RWD E350. The big difference between our cars are you have 4Matic and the air suspension on the e550.

Iím not positive on what the clearance differences are between my conventional shock/strut/spring set up versus your pneumatic units. Thatís likely the issue with fitment.

On another note, I lost a front 245/40R18 while I was 400 miles away from home last Thursday and was forced into buying a full set of 245/45 18 All Seasons so I could get home as no shop within a 3 day ship time could get me a replacement 245/40 winter tire or all season and I wasnít keen on driving 400 miles on a donut during the polar vortex.

The tires themselves suck, but the size fits on the 212 ET35 wheels with no rubbing or issues. Just looks a little tractorish.

Cant wait for spring so I put the 19Ē AMGs back on.

Thanks for responding. I definitely appreciate the insight.

The clearance is not an issue at all. OEM for my 4matic e550 is 245/40 but on 18x8.5. what I am hearing is that the 245 on an 8" width wheel is too big for it. That it'll look too big/whack and can cause sidewall roll, which will wear on my tires more. If those possibilities are more likely, then I wanna steer away from that, but I wasn't sure. If you've run 245/40 on your 8" and haven't had any of those possibilities, then I think I'll be fine with those.

Thanks again!

For visual reference on what the 245/40 18 looks like on a 18X8 wheel and how the ET looks here a couple of pics. I personally didn't think the sidewall height and/or width had an deflection or 'ballooning'.

I've not seen anything close to this combo in the USA.... I'm guessing, from the plates, that you're across the pond.. ...?
It's a rare and beautiful ride... congrats on your good fortune.
