Hi

Need some help for 19" staggered setup! I´m purchasing a w211 soon, so i kinda want to put som new wheels on it when i get. Cant wait!!! yayyy

The w208 is my old baby going to miss that in the summertimes:crybaby2::crybaby2:

19” staggered setup for w211


The OEM setup for w211 is 205/60/16, the circumference (C) is 204,96 cm (80,31 inch) and the diameter (D) is 65,24 cm (25,59 inch).

Is this setup correct?

Front:

245/35/19, C = 205,49 cm (80,70 inch), D = 65,41cm (25,60 inch)
the differences between OEM and this are, C = 0,53 cm (0,26%) D = 0,17 cm

The offset should be: ET 29 , 30 , 34 , 35 and the width should be 19x8,5

Rear:

A: 275/30/19, C = 203,45 cm (79,92 inch), D = 64,76 cm (25,19 inch)
the differences between OEM and this are, C = -1,51 cm (-0,74%) D = -0,48 cm

or

B: 285/30/19, C = 205,33 cm (80,70 inch), D = 65,36 cm (25,20 inch)
the differences between OEM and this are, C = 0,37 cm (0,18%) D = 0,12 cm

The offset should be: ET 31, 35 and width should be 19x9,5

Here in Norway the differences shouldn´t be more than +/- 5 % from the OEM and the desired setup.

(245/35/19 vs 285/30/19 the differences are C = -0.16 cm (-0,08%) D = -0,05 cm)

(245/35/19 vs 275/30/19 the differences are C = -2,04 cm (-0,99%) D = -0,65 cm)

(275/30/19 vs 285/3019 the differences are C = 1,88cm (0,93 %) D = 0,60 cm)

In my opinion I would rather go for 245/35/19 vs 285/30/19, because of the differences if you go for 275/30/19 you actually got ”smaller” wheels at the rear? Correct me if Im wrong! What do you guys think? Does anyone have pictures with one of these set up?

I´m not thinking of lowering the car because of the roads here in Norway, but the European w211s are divided into three models: classic, elegance and avantgarde. The avantgarde models have the sport suspension and the one I´m getting is the avantgarde. I´m not just sure how much it is lowered. Does anyone know?

Thanks

Raymond

The Avantgarde models do actually not have the sport suspension. They have "Avantgarde suspension". Like you say they are lowered somewhat from the factory. I'm not sure how much lower, but it's quite noticable.
