    Does any body have any pictures along with specs of wheels they have fitted to there E55's?
    Does anybody know what size you can put on before you have any rubbing issues?

    Thanks in advance :thumb:

    I only have the OEM 5 double spoke AMG IV in 18" on mine, but with lowering links and hard cornering the fronts can very occasionally rub. I wouldn't go higher than 19" myself.

    you can fit 20`s but ride is hard, 19`s is the best compromise

    i have tried all the sizes, i even go back to 18`s in the winter

    Front ET is 30 - 34 Rear is 31 although I reckon anything within 5 either side is OK.

    Front wheels are 8.5J, Rears are 9.5J.

    Front tyres are 245x35x19 Rears are 275x30x19

    Its all in that chart I linked above.
