I got 19" Brabus monoblock V's on my w202. They fit With tire sizes 215/35/19 in the front and 235/35/19 on the rear. I suggest only using 19's if you drive in an area that is smooth and free of pot holes( even small ones) they will ruin the crap out of your wheels and you'll get leaks. Unless you want to fork out 300 for each wheel for a repair/not including rechroming..

proper wheels size

I got 19" Brabus monoblock V's on my w202. They fit With tire sizes 215/35/19 in the front and 235/35/19 on the rear.

guess, none of those pics really showed it-




i know that's going ot get flamed...

in all honesty though- the c43 handles and rides better than stock with those wheels, tires, and that suspension set-up. (it is both better handling AND softer over small bumps etc.- the kind that it should be soft on. I have the eibach springs in there in front and stock rear)

as far as 19s getting wrecked with potholes- buy 19s that aren't garbage

Thought u might like these

I thought about a set for my SL, they should be availiable now in the UK they're a wheel from the US apparently???

I think they suit the 202 well, also have merc centrecaps.

What u guys think of 'em?

Yeah, the 19s should fit without mods on the fender.... the key is the offset and the tires size.



Using 235 35 R19s.... fits just perfect.

Now here are 20s on a W202



WOW!

19s fit with ease

i have the brabus 19s on mine and they fit with ease 225s on the front and 265s on the rear i will be trying to put 285 next time as there is still plenty of room there so obviously it comes down to offset

My car came with 18 inch brabus wheels on it. The owner sold me the 17' amg monoblock wheels for $150.00. they were painted, so now they are at the chrome shop. Should be getting tham back on monday. They came with fairly good tires too. I have to decide which i want. Brabus or AMG. Brabus look better but tires are more expensive and ride is a little more harsh. AMG's are reasonable for tires, but they are also a lot more common. Either way i will sell one set of rims once i decide. I'll let you guys know just in case someone is interested.
