W203 Wheels and Tyres

I have been offered some 18 inch wheels for my 2002 W203. They are ET 35 PCD 5x112 with 225/45R18 Tyres.

Will they fit? Or will they rub?

They fit but the correct tire size for W203 is 225/40/18.....

Horsepower: enough power to go from point A to point B
Torque: enough to get the car moving

0-60 mph: not in a rush
0-1/4 mile: about 5 minutes @ 2mph because no need to showoff

Is that 225/40/18 on the front and back as well? I have also been offered some 18 inch wheels for my W203, (2004 Face-lift model) which has factory 16 inch wheels.

If I fit 18 inch wheels, will I have to fit uprated brakes or change any steering or suspension parts.

Or is it just change from 16 to 18 inch wheels and leave everything as it in and it will all be alright?

Kind regards

They fit fine. You don't need to upgrade anything, provided the off set is suitable for a W203. I had to buy new wheel nuts for the rear wheels.

Hi,

What size tyres have you got on those wheels? How does the car drive with the 18's?

Many thanks
