Question Wheel size and tire recommendation for '09 E350 Sport

I just got a '09 E350 with only 2600 miles on it. The previous owner replaced the original wheels with 20 inch TSW offset wheels. They look nice but I'm leaning towards replacing these with the OEM recommended size wheels. Any input would be appreciated. I'm not much of a wheel/tire guy. Thanks.

I'm with you, I like OEM everything. Call a dealer or MBUSA (give them your VIN) and ask either what the original wheels and tires were. Chances are the tires were Continental or Michelin and they should be able to give you the part number(s) for the wheels. There were probably 2-3 types, standard and optional.

I'd find some smaller (18") AMG wheels/tires that would have been optional on the car and then sell the 20" that came on the car.
