Hi All,

I have recently bought a W140 S280 for peanuts and planning to use as a daily. I have been told that they do not like staggered wheels and can cause issues with the cruise control and other things.

I have an oppotunity to buy a set of W210 Staggered AMG Monoblocks, where there is a 0.39% difference. Will this cause the above issues?

(235/40/18 - 265/35/18)

Cheers
Dan

More pertinently, will the 210 wheels accept M14 bolts instead of the M12 they were intended for?

2mm larger dia wheel bolts will make a difference, more importantly m12 and m14 wheel bolts have a different seat radius and MB didn't use larger wheel bolts on the S class for the hell of it...

What's the kerb weight and gross axle weights for a w140? The monoblock II wheels in w124 fitments (smaller tyre dias) only have a load rating of 630kg which works out at only ~300kg more than the gross weight for some 124 models.

Obviously width plays a big role but S classes typically run very different wheel ETs to C and E classes

0.39% shouldn't be enough of a difference to confuse ABS... 225/45 and 245/40 is a fairly common staggered set up on many models of MB and the difference is 1.04%

Ive run staggered monoblock ii splits on my W140 for the last 12 months with no issues to the cruise control or anything else
