    I have a set of 20" Cades Ixion wheels in the 9x20 and 10.5x20 to go on my CLK, I will more than likely have to spacer them to fit.

    They have currently 255/35/20 and 275/35/20 tyres on. Not 100% sure these tyres will fit so what size should I be looking at?

    I was thinking 255/30/20 up front and 285/25/20 on the rear.

    Ideas on a postcard please.

    Yeah I know that's the largest recommended.

    But 20's will fit.

    I'm sure they will but the point was that tyre width doesn't change significantly (if at all) with increased wheel diameter...

    I see your point now, Wasn't that clear in the first post.

    Yeah there only going to be summer wheels, Potholes in MK get so big you'd loose a car in some of them.
