- Any rims for the ML that cost $100 per will look good only for a very short while. Unless that's what you want, spend some good money and get yourself a good quality set of wheels
- I couldn't check the tires for you. Whatever you do, don't get very Lo profile tires - the gap between tire/fender will look very ugly. Try to stay close to the overall wheel diameter
to 1: i checked with an offset calculator and for ET 35 i was just off by 4mm compared to my OEM rims? and if i use ET 38 i'm just off by 1 mm. do i really need spacers?
to 2: for 8.5 i agree its to narrow, but i think 9.5 should be OK already. Its hard to find rims with more then 9.5 here.
to 3: see my other post, i just get price because its from the china factory directly.
to 4: yes im planing to get continental sport contact 2 or Toyo proxes in 20" 275/45, the diameter would be even a little bigger now.
stock have 73.4cm and i would have 75.6cm and it would lift the truck by 1.1cm.
The speedometer would be off by 3% but this doesn't really matter in China.
