18" rims

I'm toying with changing my rims to 18" , taking advantage of the fact I need to replace my rear tyres .

Obviously I'd love some original AMG wheels or similar , but the wallet is made of leather not rubber and won't stretch enough !!

Does anyone have rims similar to these or have/seen a photo of these on a r171 as I'd like to get an idea of what they'll look like and I haven't found anything ?



The nearest I've found is in a CLK :

Well they're here , tyres on and mounted on the car !

As they're ET35 front & ET32 rears in 8,5 & 9,5 respectively , they fit perfectly without the need of any spacers and look great IMHO ....

I am still a way off with mine, maybe in a week or so.
As a matter of interest, what size tyres did you fit?
I must have had as many suggestions as I have asked! I am planning 235/40 front and 255/35 rear.

I put 225/40 on the front & 255/35 on the rear , I got them from Pnues online , Hankook V12's , much cheaper than I could get anything locally ...
They'll take 235 on the front no problem , but I wasn't sure if there'd be any problem with rubbing as all the charts state 225's on the fronts , although I've just rechecked a list I have which put 235 on 19" rims at the front , so they should be fine !
