Exclamation Need some Wheel Specs help!

Hey everyone,
I am looking to buy wheels for my C300 but I am in the dark about how far I can push the limits. Here are my questions...

1.What is the widest width I can go without harming my car?
2. Same question as above, but with offset.

I hope someone can help me out!
Thanks!

Assuming 205/55-16 on a 7 in wide rim with et50 offset as stock OEM.

You SHOULD be able to go to a 225/40-18 on a 7.5 in rim with et45 offset.

go here >> Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com << and play with the numbers

1) The largest setup we'd recommend would be 19x8.5 fronts and 19x9.5 rears.
2) As far as your offset, it will have to be around +45mm to avoid having to roll fenders or stretch your tires.

Are you seeking a new set of wheels for you C300 soon?
