    HI,

    So in an attempt to save some pennies and not shell out £200 notes to get my existing wheels refurbed I bought a set of rims off ebay that had already been refurbed and are identical to mine except they are in Gunmental grey which I thought would be nice. In the hope to direct swap my tyres over which are 205 wide

    Anyway on closer inspection two of the wheels are 7J wide and have a A208 starting code and two are slightly wider 7 1/2J and a A210 starting code number.

    Offset is different too E37 on the CLK originals and E41 on the wider E-class wheels.

    Seller assured me he had them on 205 wide rubber and on a CLK320.

    Question is will a 205 wide tyre work on the slightly wider wheel or am I in for a new wider tyre and will the offset if used on the back wheels make a difference?

    Thanks in anticipation of your help.

    There is such a small difference, the tyres will fit fine on slightly wider rears. What profile tyres are they?

    The rear offset difference is just to make up for the wider rim.

    Tyres will be fine. The rear rim will sit further in, around 10mm closer to the body but should be fine.
