I just added custom valved Bilstein's with H&R springs to my E55. I now want to change my tire size from the stock 18's to 19's - if possible, I would like to go to 10" in the rear instead of the 9.5"

Can I fit 19x10 in the rear without rubbing? I've heard it's possible, but I don't know where to find the right tire size and wheel offset.

For the front, I'll keep the width (8.5) the same.

I'm planning on Carlsson 2/6 or Brabus Monoblock VI

Any help would be appreciated.

a 19x10 with a 35mm offset has been known to work on most w210 E55's but, since the fenders are rolled by AMG and it is a hand done job all of the cars do vary a little so, you may need to massage the rear fenders abit

Tire Size

Thanks Luke - I forgot to ask...what tire size should I go for since I'm going to 19's - want to keep the same outside diameter.

Can you give me measurements for 19x8.5 (front) and 19x9.5 (rear) and also 19x10 (possible rear).

Thanks a million.

This is what i want to lower but not sacrifice ride quality.




And this Gap is what i want to fill up. but then again not have to worry about rubbing with 5 people.



so any suggestions would help me out tremendously.
