    Hi Guys,

    Would 18" R129 staggered alloys fit?

    Or W211 18" staggered alloys fit correctly?


    Thanks,


    Steve

    Thanks,

    I did see that in another post which is useful, but I'm still not 100% clear.

    For example, I have seen W208 with r230 SL55 alloys and the new SL35 alloys.

    The offset is different for both sets, but still they have been fitted to a w208 CLK.

    I'm really trying to work out what the minimum and maximum offset is beyond what the chart here shows (standard factory fitment).

    It's possible I assume to fit lower offset with spacers, but again not sure on tyre width and suitability.


    Thanks,

    A higher offset would require spacers

    Tyre wise a 225/40 R18 front on an 8" wide rim and 255/35 R18" rear on a 9" wide rim.

    You can play around with wheels but i would recommend trial fitting to see how they sit in the arches.
