Will 18" Wheels go on ?????????


Anyone got a set of 18" Wheels on an R170 without any fouling issues ??

If so, what offset / tyre sizes F&R ?

I have a nice 18" set of AMG's spare, just wondering

Cheers Dave

I've only just seen this as I don't often peruse this part of the wilderness

You can go up to 19"s
I've got 18"s on the 320 - 225/40 & 255/35

Already posted this elsewhere Dave as you now know but for future reference there is a full, comprehensive list HERE

Be careful with after market wheels. Fitted a set to another car, fitted new brake pads and the calipers fouled the wheels.
