    I have seen a set of 9 Twin Spoke 19" 8.5" F and 9.5" R from a 2008 S Class that I would like to fit on my W211 E270. I know it's only a diesel but I only do 3,000 miles a year and I like it to look nice. They are 43 offset.
    What tyres would I need to prevent fouling, keep aspect same etc.
    My first post so apologies if it's not right/long winded etc.

    I think you should be okay. 35mm-43mm is only about 8mm, thats hardly anything.

    8mm in offset terms is an awful lot, it's the difference btween rubbing and not rubbing against arches, brake pipes, suspension components etc not to mention upsetting steering geometry

    whilst I've got your attention :)

    a quote from your site if I may

    "Step 4
    Install the new aftermarket rim to the wheel using a socket wrench. You can either connect the original bolts to it, or use new bolts if provided with the rims. Specifics will vary according to the particular rims and the particular car, but the bolts shouldn't pose much of a challenge, regardless."

    no mention of checking the bolt lengths then? Kind of important if you want to make sure the rear hub brakes survive or that the wheel is properly secured.

    Other than that - welcome :)
