W221 (s550) new wheels - offset options advice needed
I have the standard 18" wheels on my S550 and am thinking of changing. I am looking at AMG's as well as knockoffs and have some questions regarding what options I have.
My current tires are Michelin 245/45/18 and they are brand new so I would consider another 18" wheel but only to reuse my tires for now and also replacement tires would likely be less in the future.
I would also consider 19" wheels - likely not staggered to allow for more flexibility of tire rotation - unfortunately this would mean new tires now as well but it's not out of the question.
Question regarding offsets - how much play do I have?
I believe the stock is 43.
Do I have to do 43 or do I have some optionality here without spacers and without running into any issues?
Lots of the aftermarket wheels are in other offsets such as 35. I have also seen 42 and 44.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Generally if the offsets are very close (e.g. the 42 or 44) you would be fine without running any spacers. Where you start to get larger than 5 or more mm's then you might need to look at spacers.
The 09 E63 wheels should fit.
