    Hi there - I'm new to thjis and could really do with some help before I part with some cash to buy some alloy wheels. (I have checked the chart from the previous posting but can't make head nor tail of it).

    Put simply, I have a 2002 (W202 I believe) C22o Cdi Classic. It has the small 15" wheels and I would like to upgrade them.

    Can someone tell me if these will fit :
    17" Alshain Alloys
    2 x Fronts 7.5J 225/45/17
    2 x Rears 8.5J 245/40/17

    Many, many thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    Thanks...told you I was new to this!!

    Will the wheels fit?

    I've yet to see a 2002 C class estate with Alshains on - should imagine it would look great. DO

    And since it's a W203, they will fit and look very nice too - especially with the wider rears.;)

    Go for it bateman, I upgraded the ones on my W203 estate to twin spokes and the transformation is amazing.
    I assume you are looking at the ones on ebay from Gloucester which would seem to be great value if they are as described.

    Hi - yes I was looking at the ones on ebay. The only thing that concerns me is I have never seen a picture of a W203 estate with the Alshains on. I have searched the net included forums and no luck. So it's very much a guess as how they will look and I am going by the comments from kjay above as assurance they will fit....

    Any pics of a W203 with Alshains fitted, greatly appreciated....

    why are the back 40 and the front 45's
    do you need a lower profile on the rears?

    To keep the same diameter o9f the tyre.
    If you dont reduce the profile the wider tyres will have a larger diameter
