Will the wheels & tyres from a W164 tyre size (235/65/17) fit straight onto a W163?
Was discussed a few weeks ago.
There doesnt seem to be a firm answer
found a cracking set....mine is a facelift 52 plate
I bought some off a GL and they didn't fit.
Since then I've looked into the Sport alloys off a new shape ML (19" 5 spokes)
Some say they will but I'm not sure. An american forum sugests on the pre facelifted OK, but facelifted need spacers. Maybe the calipers are different for what ever reason?
The GL rear wheel fitted ok it was the calipers that hindered the fronts.
I looked into hupcetric spacers (around £100) seem to do the buisness and you can get them for all sorts of mm.
Seems if you can to try one on before you buy? if possible as I would quite like the new style alloys however the tyres are 255 and mine currently are 275 and like the 'stance'
I had my eye on these
IIRC only the ML430 had Brembo four-piston calipers on pre-facelift models, although they became standard on all facelift models. Might explain it?
I wouldn't like to have said yes or no.
If you had the details off the inside of the rim, offset PCD etc you could ask Murray Systems (theres a sticky on the forum somewhere)
Even then though I would be tempted to try first?
