Am I wrong in assuming that 16" wheels from an E320 would be the correct offset etc for a 2003 C320?

I have a bid on these at the moment but the seller is listing the tyres as 255/55/16 which seem rather wide for the rims, possibly a typo and he meant 225, I have emailed to ask and am awaiting a reply. Do E class wheels routinely differ in width to C class? i.e. 8j over 7.5j etc?

Thanks, being dim how do you assess the offset from those pictures? Also, if different would it be a complete no to fitting to a C class?
The offset is 62 I think :dk: In order to fit the W203 you need an offset of around 35. Try some sport edition wheels instead. :thumb:

I bought a set of these once when I had my W210 years back but never put them on as I was told I needed a new set of bolts which I decided not to spend extra on so I sold them on (at a profit as it happens although not intentional). I think they were ET42 and the tyres should be 225's and not 255's so I think the seller has made an error in his description.

Also it just so happens that I saw a W203 about an hour ago with the same fitted. They were 16" Rucha's. Looked very suited to the car and looked good.
