I currently have AMG wheels on my 1998 WDB129068, which are:

10J * 18" ET25 (Rear)
8.5J * 18" ET25 (front)

I want to get another set of wheels/tyres to use for the winter and also take the opportunity to refurbish the AMGs as they are looking a bit tatty.

I believe that the standard wheels that would have come with the car are:
8.25J * 17" ET34 (front and rear) from 'alloywheelsdirect.net' site

Would 8.5J * 17" ET35 fit without fouling the calipers?

I have had a look at the wheel offset calculator and the rears look fine but the fronts seem to be 10mm closer to the calipers, if I am reading it right.

Can anybody confirm if I am reading this right? :confused:

Thanks in advance.

Hello mike, there are quite a few that you can use,,do make sure that they are not from a 230 as they use 14mm bolts and yours are 12mm.

Take a read at the bottom of the chart, you can use up to ET18 the lower the figure the more they come outwards

I am sure that my standard wheels were ET35, I see the 34 is listed for the 8.25J
