    Hi guys,

    First post on the site, I will get some pics added soon of my C250D!

    I am looking to change the current 18" alloys with a set of 19" wheels.

    Can someone confirm what offset i will need front and rear as I would like to have the wider wheels on the rear? The car still has standard suspension.

    Also, anyone selling any 19" wheels..

    Many thanks, Jon.

    Personally unless you only drive on motorways I'd stick to 18s.
    If you fit 19s the ride will worsen and you will forever be chasing out of round wheels due to the appalling state of UK roads.

    Because I spend quite a lot of time on our wonderful roads I get to see lots (and I mean lots) of cars driving with obviously buckled wheels as well as shot dampers. At slow speed you can easily see the buckled wheel when looking from behind and the bouncing wheels when the dampers have given up the ghost. My eyes are drawn to the movement (still a hunter gatherer caveman here :p)

    The drivers are obviously none the wiser until they hit the brakes and they don't stop (dampers failed)
