Stock e350 4matic sport 18in offset

im curious what are the specs of the stock 18in rims that come on the sport trim.
i believe they are 32 offset.
I saw a nice pair of rims with 35 offset is it much different ?
Has anyone put 30 offset on ??
what do you guys recommend
30 or 35 offset

The offset is 48ET front and rear for 4Matic. 30ET would poke out in the front so bad....
35ET up front is the limit as far as I'm concerned unless you cambered the wheel dramatically.

There are too many parameters to just throw out offset specs. Wheel size(18-19) width (8.5,9,9.5). Being sure to Maintain a safe 4Matic setup that won't blow your transfer case, etc. Find some wheels that you are interested in from a vendor on here or other source and make sure they will work for you aesthetically and fit your budget. It's easy to spend $2,500 and way more on new wheels and tires. If you are ready for that, then look around.

im going to get the same set up 18x8.5 all around with 245/40/18 tires

so if the rims I get were 18x8.5 with an offset at 45mm or 35mm will they both fit ?
45 is so close to the stock 48 offset just will close the fender gap a little .
35mm Iím really curious about will that fit nice

Technically, they should work and others on here are running a 35 Offset with 18" wheels. You are only moving the wheel/tire towards the outside, so you are maybe providing the illusion that the gap is closing. You need to lower the suspension in order to truly close the gap. Does that make sense?

My car on 19" wheels with a 38ET in front (9" wide wheels) and a whopping 52ET in the rear (9.5" wheels). It is not dropped, but it does give the illusion that the gap is less. It has to do with the wheel size and the fat tires I have on there. I'm not a fan of suspension drops

KEY08,
I really like your rims. Do you have the 4 matic?
I do and I would like to get myself a set of 19". How do you like your set up?

Thanks. I have 4Matic. The wheels are OEM E63AMG and are a staggered setup. My front tires are 245/35 and the rear are 285/30. There is a .1% circumference difference from front to rear so no issue with the 4Matic. I'm running a high performance summer tire and will put my all season tires/wheels back on in winter.

any rubbing issues with the 38 offset in the front ?
I might do 35 offset in front 8.5 in wide rim

No rubbing and you should be fine with 35ET and 8.5" width wheel.
