2012 E350 Sedan V6
20" wheel fitment questions

G'day all,

My name is Sime and I have just taken ownership of a used but low mile 2012 E350 V6 Sedan RWD in Brilliant White. It has the AMG sport pack. Loving the car!

I have ordered some staggered 20" wheels (Koya SF11). They are 20x9 ET32 front and 20x10 ET40 on the rear. This is the offset that the wheel manufacturer has suggested but I believe they're suggesting a 265 rear tyre. I do not want a stretched tyre look and would rather a 285 or 295/25R20 rear....or maybe a 275/30R20? Tyre shops I have spoken to say the offsets Koya have suggested are too aggessive and incorrect.

I plan on lowering the car roughly 1.5-2" with either Godspeed MomoMax, ST or Megan Racing Euro Series coilovers in order that the tyres are about level with the guards/fenders.

Are these the correct offsets? What ideal offsets and tyre sizes front/rear should I be running to get this aggressive, yet proper fitment please?

Thanks in advance for any and all assistance!

Cheers,
Sime

I believe those wheels will rub due to the aggressive offset. Lowering will compound the problem.

Did you search first? 20" wheels and these cars are problematic at best. I would steer clear.
