Re: 18 is more comfy but 19 looks better....both fit.

Thank you lee2375..<br> I have two more questions,1. How about tire size and wheel for 18'? i mean should i choose 8 for front or 8.5 or 9 for rear? or same size front and back? My car is W203 C200 komp.<br> 2.Which tire number more comfort between 235 or 240 or 245. I don't know what the different? depend on what?

See inside

For 18 inch you can either run 18x8, 18x8.5 in the F and and 18x8, 18x8.5, 18x9.0, or 18x9.5 for the R. Tires should be 225/40/18 F and R or optional staggered fitment 255/35/18 R only. If you run a 9 or 9.5 inch wheel in the back, you def. want to use the staggered fitment. Otherwise 225/40/18 all the way around is fine also. Those are the correct tire sizes for your car.<br> <br> As far as your comfort issue, generally speaking, the thicker the tire (more sidewall) the softer the ride. This is the second number called the 'series' or 'aspect ratio' (i.e 50, 40, 35, etc...) which is a percentage of the width. The first number is the wdith of the tire in mm. Because the sidewall height is a function of both the aspect ratio and the width, the thickness of the sidewall can vary, but generally speaking, the higher the aspect ratio, the thicker the tire. However, you must ensure that the OD of the tire doesn't exceed the OE OD by too much, or else the speedometer will be off and you may have rubbing/clearancing issues.<br>

19

You can fit the Brabus 18' rims on the car with the low pro tires, but the 19' will fit only after some fender mods. This is Brabus, I'm not sure about any other rims, because nothing but brabus is touchin my '98 w202. I have 18' monoblock V's 2-piece on it right now, but i might upgrade to the big dogg 19's later.
