    Taz,

    Tried to send a PM chap but it's not playing ball :(

    Are these the alloys you have on your E class?

    http://www.wheelbasealloys.com/19_Inch_ZCW_K1_Alloy_Wheels__2194

    They don't look staggered fit so wondered if they were 19" 8J front and rear? If so any dram with fitment? Spacers used etc?

    Regards
    Pete

    Pete,

    PM all sent bud, but you know that already ! :D

    it's strange how a naked alloy may look plain in a library pic, but on the car they are soo nice...

    makes me wish I had gone for 20's now ! :cool:

    It still amazes me that it is the look of the car that is more important than the ride :shock:

    As James May said in top gear, no one on a public road can get any driving benefit at all from the very low profile tyres

    Agreed Malcolm actually, I am still debating the 18 or 19" benefits as the initial plan was/is to replace with original 18" alloys.
    Ideally the same as I currently have but the cost is double.

    The jury is still out on my purchase but the state of the roads is a major factor.

    Lol Malcolm...

    I was jesting ;)

    in all honesty, the ride on the 19's are fine, but then I've always had cars with "I think" nice wheels...

    My E class came with 18's when I bought her, so upgrading to a lower profile by 5 wasn't any more uncomfortable...

    that said, I live out in the sticks...

    If I lived in London again, then, i'd probably go down to 17's !!

    :D
