Size of AMG wheels?

Will these wheels fit my 2002 E320 Wagon? If not, what size should I have?

Newer style AMG silver wheels
Fronts are 17x7.5 with 225/45/ZR17
Rears are 17x8.5 with 245/40/ZR17

Sincerely

Anders

you offer a generic description of the wheels, but have specifics on the tires.
the tires sound good, but still to be determined are wheel offset, and which
car they came off from. the latter may clue you into the lug bolt design
needed and if they're a straight across swap for your 210. otherwise, incon-
clusive whether you need hybrid conversion bolts, for example.

The ad does not say...

Here are a couple of pictures.
Is it good to have the two different sizes between front and back wheels?

You should have AMG wheels specifically engineered for the W210--as shown in the Mercedes wheel catalog:

Thanks,

Does anyone have the exact measurements I need for the AMG Monoblock II rims, and what bolts to use? The car is a 2002 E320 Wagon/white.

Not

a 4matic,right?
you need the et of those wheels and you can use w211 wheels if the correct et and you get the proper lugs from radusa.call the seller the et should be stamped on the wheels.Staggered if fine as long as you are not a 4matic.
Want aftermarket call luke at tirerack.com he will tell you what size.
5 by112 bolt pattern et 35-38 the tires he has on them are the wrong size to most closely match the stock tire height to keep your speedometer correct and your esp and asb and cruise control all happy you would need to run a 235/45/17 on the front and 265/40/17 on the rear with a 9"rim these size staggered tires both most closely match your oem size of 215/55/16.
the set up he has now the rear tires are shorter then the fronts and have to travel several more rpm ,and both of them are shorter then the oem wheel and tire combination.I would pass
and look for the correct wheel and tire package.If I were you on a wagon i would run 235/45/17 on all 4 on 8inch rims with a 35 et.Slightly wider stance no clearance issues and you really don't need the stagger nor the extra unsprung weight of the wider wheel on the back end.

Great, Thanks for the info. I will pass on these AMG rims. I think I am leaning towards the Monoblock II rims, regular silver or chrome. I had chrome rims on an older MBZ but one of the tires leaked air as the chrome got old, and this has spooked me a bit from buying chrome rims...
I do not have a 4-matic, and I have seen that some choose 18" over 17". What is to prefer for ride quality vs looks, and no extra negative stress on the car?


Sincerely

Anders

* Sport Package: 17 x 7.5” ET37
* Special Edition: 17 x 8” ET35
* E55: 18 x 8” ET31 front, 18 x 9” ET35 rear.

If You want to install the W211 Rims or R230 rims one will need SPECIAL Lug bolts as they are different dia

I have the AMG E55 Rims on my W210 estate ..no problems ..its also lowered with H/R springs and AMG E55 Sway bars..

Also Note that AMG rolls the fenders on most ALL Of its vehicles to avoid tire rubbing from 10 to 2 o clock on the front fenders

Thanks for the great info. Now I can look into it. I think I am leaning toward 18" rims.

Many thanks

If

you like your ride quality or have a wife.LEan towards the 17's.Go with the 18's and you will need to drop it$$$ get it aligned with special camber bolts and links and you may not like the difference in ride.
you decide.
