AMG 18 inch wheels fitting issue

My CLK 500 has standard 17 inch wheels, I have picked up a set of AMG 18 inch wheels without tyres they are off a 2003/4 SL55 and as follows:-
18x8.5 ET30
18x9.5 ET33
I propose to fit similar tyres to standard 225/40R18 and 245/35R18.
But, on a trial fit I found the rear wheels on this spec interfere on the inside, ok can fix with a modest spacer, say 1/2 inch.
But I concerned the 8.5 inch maybe too wide at the front, this spec seems to fit but are they too wide and will a 225 extend beyond the wheel arch?
Does anyone have 18 inch wheels on the CLK and what sizes are they, I believe late CLKs had 8.5 inch 18 inch wheels, is this right?

CLK 550s starting in 2008 had 18s. 2007s still had 17s. I assume the AMGs had 18s too. I think the stiock stagger is 7.5 front and 8.5 rear. But I think lots have switched to 8.5 and 9.5 with no spacers. It all depends on wheel design and offset.
