    Chaps,

    I am considering purchasing a summer set of alloys and leaving the winter tyres on the current rims. The current rims are staggered 18" and I believe are 5x112 - 32 offset.

    I was wondering if the following would be suitable?

    View item:
    18" MESH 356B ALLOY WHEELS FIT MERCEDES CLK C209 CLS C218 C219 E CLASS W210 W211

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200843511645

    The advertised offsets are 32 and 35.

    Any advise/clarification much appreciated.

    Pete

    18" on a 211 will have an off set between 30 and 35, the wheels advertised are replica and no idea who makes them or the quality

    I have a set of original W211 Sport 18" wheels with nearly-new Conti rears (and worn out fronts) that I'm considering selling, now that I've switched to 17" wheels. Contact me directly if interested. The wheels are 5 years old, so have the odd parking scuff, but are basically in good condition.

    Thanks Malcolm can I assume that I wouldn't need spacers?

    Fraser, many thanks for the offer but I was looking at a new/different set but may consider originals.

    Thanks chaps.
