I've just bought some amg cl rims 18x8.8 and 18x9.5 for my 1999 clk430, I noticed that tirerack recommends 225/40-18 for the fronts and 255/35-18 for the rears. My question is can use 235/40-18 for the fronts and 265/35-18 for the rears instead? will this compromise anything in my car? will the car drive the same? i dont want to put anything without your ok Luke, please help.

then why did you purchase CL wheel for your CLK with all that I have said about that fitment & the use of spacers


depending on your spacers size selection you should be OK with the 235/265 combo ... you may need a fender roll if you lower trhe car

I'm pretty sure that all AMG CL-type wheels in 18" with 8.5/9.5" widths (not the 7.5/8.5") are for 14mm lugs. After all you've said about it. :)

jumped the gun

thanks for the help guy, i should of asked before i bought the wheels. those cl rims are the AMG 5 spoke 220 rims, do you guys know what size spacers i would need to get? How much are the spacers? Where can i get those spacers at? or should i just try to resell those rims?

I would suggest selling them and getting some wheels designed for your car
