Post Need help in buying wheels! I have an R500 with original size 255/55/18

I am thinking of buying rims with these stats:

Brabus Monoblock 245-35-19 front and 275-30-19 rear. Will this work on the car? I am confused with offset or need of spacers..etc...I dont want to spend money on something that is not going to fit. I've called many places all with diff opinions. In the end I think I am going to keep my originals.

Why don't you leave the car the way it is. Mercedes Benz engineers spent much time and money developing and testing the car with those tires. You paid for that expertise too.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
