I would think that the ride quality would be terrible. Im thinking one pothole and the whole rim, tyre and suspension setup would crap out.

Modz ... enjoy the difference. www.benzmodz.com

RE: 22 inch on CLS!?

the tires will work, but what kind of mercedes did the wheels come from. the bolt pattern and size will work and the center bore on most newer mercedes is 66.5mm so that will probably work as well. but the offset does very between different models.

RE: 22 inch on CLS!?

anything over 20" on a cls would make it ugly, it would sit like a 4x4. don't fall victim to all these rap trends now a days, just because they're exspensive, it doesn't make it looks nice, it's just makes it look tacky. 22's on a bigger body benz such as a g class or an s class is a different story. personally i think 19" is perfect for the CLS, 20" if you have a front spoiler.

RE: 22 inch on CLS!?

You guys are being a bit cocky in here.

Sure one can go out and buy "correct" AMG, Carlsson, Lowenhart, Brabus, Klemann wheels for 4-6000 bucks for twenties and brag to your buddies that you have the correct wheels(for a CLS sedan never to be driven over 1000mph???)

I think this is pure garbage.

You can get a number of wheels in both 20 and 22 for the CLS that look great for metro driving and will perform fantasic.

Here are a couple of examples of 22's on the CLS that dont look ridiculous...

By the way, all these wheels are sub 1600 a set!

Get what you want and dont listen to others that "think" they know it all.
