Hi all - just got new set of Mandrus Reganmeister 18 x 8.5 front 18 x 9.5 rear (Shame AMG haven't the good sense to make a set of 18's with the above sizes for W203). Will post some pics when the weather gets better.


I have been offered an excellent price on 2 x 225/40/18 F and 2 x 255/35/18 R Yokahama Advan Sport V130 tyres. The only reason i am swinging towards buying them is that the tyre comes as an OEM fitment (19's) on the C63 AMG, so in effect should be a good tyre.

Secondly, is it best to run the standard 225/40/18 on the front or, should i opt for 235/40/18, which i currently run (Falken) on Kleemann 8.5 rim with no rubbing.

Has anyone had experience of this brand, as they are below (£430) for the 4 tyres - fitting included.

As to my current Falkens they will be relegated to my Kleemann TS-7's.
