My first post!!

I am running 18" amg aero 2's on my 300ce.

But because thier too big and i don't want to make a loss on them by selling them on ebay i need help into how i can make them fit.

rears are fine, fronts have spacer and stick out beyond wheel arch and the rubbing is terrible!! The driver's side has cracked the arch and split it slightly.

I don't really know much about cars and modifying so i would appreciate some input into what suspension modification and body work modification i need.

* HAVE PICS - DON'T KNOW HOW TO POST THEM:confused:

Hi,
It might be an optical illusion but is the dish the same on the front and rear wheels? If these AMG wheels were bought as a set, as they normally have wider rear wheels than the front, and it "looks" like the front wheels are on the rear and vica-versa, hence my question regarding the size of the dish.

IIRC the AMG 18" rims should be 9.5J on the rear and 8.5J on the front it might be worth looking to see if you have a set of all one type (if theres no difference in the dish that is)

Difference between front sides could be due to broken spring.

What are the wheels sizes? Width & Offset? What are the tyre sizes? How thick are the front spacers?

these wheels are too big. sell them on ebay and fit a nice set of proper sized alloys that look correct for the car. sorry but it looks pretty "barry" to me!

it looks like one side has had some work done on the suspension & not set up after by adjusting the camber & castor angle
