    Hi All,

    I want to give the old girl a little face lift in January and have found some lovely alloys, sizes below:

    18" 8J + 9J ET42 5x112

    So will they fit 8J at front and 9J at rear, or are they too wide?

    The car is 53-reg estate E320cdi.

    Or I could just go for 8J front and rear but the deeper dish on the rear does look amazing.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have checked that site (which is very good).

    The ET on the wheels I am purchasing is 42 but that site is quoting 30/35.

    What does that mean?

    Why?

    Too big or wrong ET or both?

    basically ET is the offset of the wheel in relation to the seating surface ie hub you can work out whether theyll fit mathematically, google "ET-offset" the the rears will more than likely fit but fronts are the problem catching wing/suspension/ and bodywork on turning
