Would it be possible to fit 20" wheels on a w210 e class
8.5j front and 10j rear if so what size tyres would i use ?

Been offered a set of wheels off a mate that he has taken off his S class just wondering if they would fit as the s classes look like they can take larger wheels.

The tyres will have to be rubber bands...but other than that they should fit. Post photos when you've done it.

Thanks i get what you mean 20" is not even on the list for w210 it only goes as high as
19" maybe it is recommended only going to 19" for w210..

In terms of wide rims, this german e55 has the widest rims at least I've seen on a w210.

What is the offset on the wheels you're getting?
You can see pics of my 210 with 8.5x19 on the front and 9.5x19 on the back. With an offset of ET35 the wheels sit nicely flush with the arches. Running 235/35/19 up front and 275/30/19 on the back and it works fine.

this is a question i often find myself asking as im permanently on the hunt for the right wheels for me W210 320.

This guy is running (i think) 19x9.5 and 19x11 on air with rolled arches.

Getting them cheap and fancy a change would probably store my monoblocks and go back to them.

I think the offset is ET31 do you think this would work, do you have your car lowered how does it sit on 19s ?

Looks like it's a possible fitment, but you're going to need to roll the arches and stretch the tyres, or get them flared and fit a proper size.

Stretched tyres look daft to me but seem popular with some!

I don't have any more close ups of the wheels and they are now on the CLK, but when i originally fitted 285 wide tyres that i had lying around the car rubbed like a pig, just changing down to 275 meant they NEVER rubbed and you couldn't get your small finger between the arch and the tyre.

My car is sitting on AMG springs with #1 spring pads all round. No arches were rolled.

I don`t really understand where these wheels are getting inside ... i think that there must be some strange modifications because if not it`s an enigma for me :cool:

Also, remember the w220 S Class uses M14 bolts as opposed to M12 bolts (w210).
