Can I use ML55 AMG wheels on W220

Just bought this pretty fun car. I’d like to put the wheels on my W220 Mercedes. If I can, what tire size is recommended? They are 18s squared, but the tires are huge lol.

Hi,

Check the offset (ET number on back) IIRC they are not within recommended offset

How much did you spend for this one?
Cheap, 1600 plus transit from Va to NC.

I used ML63 wheels on my W220 S600 very successfully.

You need to have the right offset.

With 275 tyres all round, the offset has to be between 40 & 46 mm.

With narrower tyres you get a bit more latitude, but close to 43mm is ideal.

245/45/18 all around or staggered 275/40/18 rear
If you want fatter front tires you can also do 265/40/18 all around
