Wheel fitting question

Will these fit on my 06-280? Do I have to do anything special to make them fit? Spacers, new lug bolts??????

Yes, and nothing, no, and no - they will fit fine. :-)

Ad states they're actual MB wheels. Based on width, bolt pattern, and offset, they should fit OK. No need for new lug bolts or spacers.

Thanks guys,

If I put the OEM tire size for the 55 on them, will the outer circumference be the same as my 16"??????? Or will I have to have some programming changed to correct the speedometer??

Try this. Go to tirerack.com and check tires. It will give you a table with all specifications, check under specs, it will give you tire diameter size for different size tires. That will help you make a good choice, especially if you want to maintain the same diameter.
