CLS 550 Wheels

Little help here; ran across a good deal on a staggered set CLS 550 wheels and tires. 18 with 275/35r front and 245/40r on rear. Im not certain about this but the seller say they measure 7 deep from lug plate to inside lip of wheel. I know I need to keep the overall diameter of all four wheels within a certain circumference but Im not sure exactly what that is. Has anyone moved up to such a size or would this be a problem for me? I already know what happens when the wrong size tires ore mounted so I dont want that headache again. Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer!

Yes, this is what the seller reported; I haven't had a chance to see the set as ofyet other than a photo.

I would say they'd be the other way around , 275 at the rear !
You need to get the seller to tell you the ET and the " J " ( width of the rims ) for the rims , both of which are normally marked on the inside of the rims .
If you post this info then we can try and help you out .
