Sorry to ask, but not understanding wheel sizes, and offsets at all, my current OEM wheels are 18" 8J ET 30 fronts and 18" 9J ET39 rears, could anyone tell me to weather they think that 19" 8.5J ET 30 fronts and 19" 9.5J ET31 rears would fit a W211 E class without any problems, IE: actually fit, wheel arch clearance, suspension geomentry, etc. Various adverts I have been looking at, claim that these sizes/offsets will fit a W211, why given the above size wheels does the larger 19" wider wheel still have an ET of 30, (same as my current 18" OEM wheel), yet the rear larger wider wheel is ET31 against the current ET39 on my 18" OEM wheel, Do you think the 19" wheels would fit? or do I need to look a different size wheels. Thanks for any advice.
