For better ride and comfort I want to go to 16" wheels on my 2000 E430 4matic. It came with 17" but the wheels keep bending every time even if there's a minor pot hole. I've replaced wheels numerous times and have finally decided to go with 16" hoping it will be a better setup.

Can I fit the w210 E320 16" or the w211 E320 16" wheels on the E430 ?
thanks in advance :)

Your questions are answered in the wheels thread in the stickies. Yes to both, 211 wheels on the 210 require custom lug bolts.

NJ has to have worse roads than CA. :eek:
I drove on 17" wheel that come from SLK AMG and they fit with no problem, but I noticed big difference on ride comfort from OEM 16".
Than I lost 16" rim on pothole as well. Rare situation when female driver did unpredictable maneuver in the tunnel and I went over the shoulder lane while braking. The rim was bent good 1" but the tire still hold the air.

thanks, I know about the different lug nuts, however the stock wheels on E430 4matic are 17" therefore I wanted to know if it's OK to move down to 16" without any clearance, caliper issues etc.

If gregs210 said it's O.K. and it's mentioned in the stickys as O.K., you can take that to the bank!

Well, I did the sticky, so... :rolleyes:

Any W210 MB wheel can be installed on any non-AMG W210 without a clearance issue. If you install AMG wheels on a non-AMG chassis, you may have to step down a size on the tire (from the AMG size), roll the fenders or install spacers, or a combination thereof.

Hi, does anyone know the exact tire pressure for the front and rear tires on a 2010 E350 Coupe? There are two stickers on the car but they have conflicting tire pressure info. The dealer didn't help the situation either because they gave me a third set of numbers. Thanks.
