OEM Mercedes AMG wheels from a CLS55.

Front Wheel Size:18" x 8.5" 25mm offset

Rear Wheel Size:18" x 9.5" 28mm offset

Bolt Pattern: 5x112

Pirelli tires
front tires 255/40/18 50% left
rear tires 285/35/18 90% left

I currently have 19" iForged Daytonas but the ride is too rough, would these give me a smoother ride? Thanks for the advice!!

Not even close, my friend.

Too wide, wrong offset, tires are far too large.

Best to get your info from the 203 forum rather than the general one.

Good luck.

Agree with Codes. Offset is too aggressive and will potentially stick out past your fender, causing tire rubbing. We've test fit 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 with a +35 offset, and they fit fine as long as the correct tire sizes are used. Optimal offset would be +35 for front and rears. Good luck on your search.
