I have 19's on mine, which I can't wait to get off and put the 18" AMG Monoblocks that came with my deal on. Even with rolled fenders they rub and bottom out on stuff. Another feature I have, which you could look forward to, is a crap ride and poor handling... I can't imagine what 20's will do for ya.:eek:

I have 18"s on my 1998 Sl, and I personally, wouldn't go any bigger due to speedometer, caliber and fender rubbing issues. I have the R230 5 spokes, staggered, and they are incredible! 255/40ZR Front & 285/35ZR Rear Pirelli Zero's....

Custom Nutek 515 (20" for R129)

These wheels were custom made by Nutek in Orange, CA. Some challenges were encountered but the awesome guys at Nutek made it right. Front is 20" X 8.5" & the rear is now 20" x 10" instead of 20" X 10.5". Just FYI, we could not get a lip greater than 3" for the rear wheels.

I have 19s but ive added 20s people get on my last nerve saying the car looks pimp with 20s it does fit with the right tires (visit MecDesign page) i added tires to fit to lower it & in my opinion and "idgaf abt anyone elses" its custom and my ride isnt really any different handling either and i can only speak from driving my own car just became a member i know topic has been long ago

Haha, are you pre-emptively defending yourself against people that posted 3+ years ago? How about some more pics of the 20's and 19's, for posterity's sake?

Like I said to each his own. You like it and that's fine for me they look pimp. I think 19s is the absolute max that looks correct on this chassis, for me the sweet spot is 18", and that's the reason I decided to go with 18s not bigger, not smaller.

You came on here saying "idgaf abt anyone elses" so people calling it pimp shouldn't bother you. :thumbsup:
