Post ML 320 On 24's Dub!

I was browsing across the internet and found these pictures of an 1998 ML on 24's, Dub Condos with 285/30/24. What do you guys think?

so 24's on an ML COULD be acceptable. But you'd have to lower it. and they'd have to be GOOD wheels! haha, not those ghetto chrome things! Plus it'd be better on the 99+ ML's, without the 2 tone bumpers

I would get 24's but as stated the rims would have to be exceptional looking, as well as the styling of the rest of the vehicle.

After 20" I think the look of the ML is no longer symetrical. For some reason this reminds me of a golf cart with rims. 24's are not cool!!!!

Just to throw more fuel to the fire think about not only fuel cost and ride but AVAILABILITY!!! If you get a flat thats up to 2 weeks before you can get a 24's in a shop.

Eat, Sleep, and Drive a 163....That's life!

I thought dubs were 20's
The rims look awful and if you do not upgrade the braking system you will run into major problems. It takes a lot more to stop 24" rims.


I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.
