Wheels on 88 w126 560sel
I recently purchased an 88 560sel, which the previous owner had added 18inch AMG wheels to. The rears are much larger than the front (275/35/18 vs 245/40/18). The look great, in my opinion.
Problem is, the rears are rubbing on the quarter panel when I go over large bumps, or when I have a couple of fat bottomed girls in the back.
I'm looking for opinions on what I can do to resolve this problem. I've considered maybe switching to a smaller tire, ie 255/30/18, but don't really like the lower profile. A guy I know also has a set of stock rims from a 2002ish S-class, size 225/60/16, but as these tires are actually taller, I don't know if they would fit or not, or maybe they would make it worse.
