2016 GLC 300 aftermarket wheels?

Hello everyone,
Ordering a 2017 GLC 300 this Friday and started to shop around for custom
wheels and tires for it.
I want to put 19 inch on it with a slightly fatter tire but I have no idea what
the spec's are for the stock 19 inch wheels, i.e. offset and width.
Anyone put aftermarket wheels and tires on the 2016 GLC 300 and could
share the info?
Thanks for any help,
Jack

Why not order the exterior sport package and get the stock 20" wheels/tires.

Then have them powdercoated.

Will keep the original dynamics of the car AND completely changes the cars look.

Best $450 bucks I ever spent.

You know, I was just looking at the DOG and eyeing the five spoke 19 inch and thinking "shame that's not available in black, it just might do the trick". I hadn't considered dismounting them and having them powder coated locally, thanks jeffzou, you've added
another option.
Curious, you ordered your's with the 20"? If you wouldn't mind, what are the size of the tires(the full tire spec number on the side wall)? I'm going to stay with a 19" but I can do the conversion if I know the spec on the 20".
Oh, one last thing, do you know the size of the fuel tank? I'm having a problem finding a mechanical spec sheet on the 2016.
Thanks, Jack

The fuel tank is supposed to be 17.2 Gal. I do question that, I believe the US gets a bigger tank just not sure what size.

Yeah Mitch, I called MB and they told me it was 17.4
I can't believe something as fundamental as fuel tank size isn't somewhere in
the brochure.

I'll call them tomorrow, they don't list the 2016 GLC in the list.
Thanks for the heads up, the Arrow looks like it might do the trick, if they
fit.

I have bought several sets of Mandrus wheels. They have NO adapters- shims ets. Just bolt them on.

Jeff that looks really nice, makes me want to get mine powdercoated.

What size tires do you have on there?
