Arrow HOW CAN I FIT 18" AMG'S ON MY CLK 320? RUBS REALLY BAD, PICS INSIDE, PLEASE HELP!!!!!

I have a set of 4 AMG stock rims that came off of a SLK 500 or CLS 500 not sure, they are 18" with the same bolt pattern, was told by many they would not fit on my car after I purchased, thought I could get a mod kit or a lift to make them fit, pics below... appreciate any tips or if I'm SOL feel free to make me an offer.

Did you roll your fenders?

to my knowledge Spacers will actually make it worse when you hit a bump because the springs will compress and the fender will hit the tire

They aren't suitable because the offset of the wheel is wrong for the CLK.

The SL or CL has a much bigger offset than yours which is why they are sticking out past the fender.

Spacers will only make it worse and make the wheel stick out further still.

Spacers are for wheels that have too small an offset for that particular vehicle and thus bring the wheel back out inline with where the OEM one would have sat.

OP, look on the back of your old wheels and look for the double digit number with the designation ET (ET45) for example.

Then see what the AMG ones are.

To illustrate how this works and what ET you can get away with check this site out.
