I've been looking at these wheels a while now too, so this thread is probably going to push me over the edge on doing it. Love the look of them! I probably won't be quite as aggressive on the tire side of things since I am currently running stock 225/245 now with stock suspension on the 16 spoke AMG wheels. I'd like to get a little more rubber in the back so it sounds like 255 or even 265 should fit well on these wheels without fear of rubbing. That sound right?
Thanks for posting this!
One can fit 255/35-18 on the OEM 16-spoke AMG rims without any problems. These are more readily available than 245's, as other makes (e.g., BMW) has the 225 fronts and 255 rears as standard, ergo, most tire shops have these sizes on stock.
