I'm about to have my white 06 E350 delivered and I'm trying to decide between 20" and 19".

I did quite a few searches in the forum and it seems like 20 inches fits without problems for some, and for others there is U-Turn rubbing.

I don't plan on dropping the car at all, and I just want a staggered aggresive look without having to do modify, roll, or adjust the way the car came stock.

Can I just throw the right size 20's on and have no problems? If so, what are the sizes that fit?

If I have to go 19, what is the best tire sizes that look the best with no rubbing?

Thanks in advance.

When I first put my 19's on my E-class I did not lower my car at first and there was no problem of rubbing or any kind. But as soon as I lowered my car thats when I had to repair my front fender=) Not so much a problem with U-turns, but with rolling up steep driveways and shopping plaza entrances. I fixed that by changing from a 245 tire size in the front to a 235. So I believe that you can put 20's with no problems but in my opinion it makes the car a little more slower and you will feel the road more. 19's are the way to go in my opinion. Here is a pic of my car on 19's=)

I have adjusted the height and it rides smooth and even better if I also adjusted the stiffnes on my springs.
