Rims?

I have an 07 CLS 550 and looking to get some nice rims with some deep lips on it without it ruining the quality of my ride too much...is it possible to get 22's or will that ruin the quality of the ride no matter what? Are 20's the biggest I can get? I want some nice ass rims which really make my car stand out I got a black on black CLS 550 and later will add a body kit too it is a 39 month lease so I have 38 months left on it, appreciate the help!

Hey, xx....

You'll probably find more useful information in the tech forum for tires and wheels or in the W219 forum which is the one specific to your car re: largest you can go.

That said, my personal preference is to not exceed stock by more than 2 inches unless you really care mostly about looks and not ride quality. Tiny sidewalls also equate to easily damaged rims unless you drive on super smooth roads, and the larger the tire and wheel, the more difficult and expensive they are to both buy and balance, and the additional unsprung weight will affect handling as well.

But the beauty of owning a car is being able to make it how you want it to be.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg
