E230 1997 avantgarde W210 - tires, rims, lowering springs
I have just bought my first mercedes and I would like to lower it, put some decent rims on etc.
1. I am thinking of going with 19" rims, and low profiles tyres. Does anyone know if this is too big for this car?
2. I am trying to do my shopping off Ebay, and I found some lowering springs(but they state that they are 'not self-levelling suspension' what does that mean?
3. I have heard for some cars you can't just buy the lowering springs without coordinating shocks absorbers, do I need special shocks if I get the springs?
4. Tyres sizes, I have read about tyre sizes on the forum, that range from fronts being 235 and back being 275, would that work for me.
If someone has same car as mine and has done the whole wheel and tyre, lowering thing and it works please help. Any info will be appreciated.
