Hey I have two sets of C36/C43 Staggered 17inch Monoblocks. 17x7.5 fronts 17x8.5 rears. One sets on my W210 and I want to put he other set on my W124 300E since I recently sold my CLK Lightweights. Has anyone run this set up before? Does it requires any different lugs or modifications? Any help would be awesome!

Thanks, CQ

It will work perfectly fine....Offset will be the determining factor.

Im going to try to test fit them some time this weekend once this snow melts... Damn DC winters. And yeah I think I might have to roll the rear fenders to accommodate the 8.5's in the rear. But I really hope not...

Thats exactly what was on my 92 CE when I bought it. Good fit, although I did get a "Occasional" rub from the rear tires from large bumps or dips.... Fronts were perfect fit, I think the offsets were 37 F & 30 R...

Maybe a fender roll in the rear would stop the "minor" rub...

I have this setup of both Monoblocks and Starspokes on my CE with no problems. The car is actually handling better.

Lug bolt sizing

Does it requires any different lugs or modifications?

Thanks, CQ
Forgot to answer the lug bolt question.. Take one of your current lug bolts and stick it through each different size wheel.

While holding it in place, carefully measure the length of the threads sticking through the back side. (Hopefully you will get the same measurement from both the 7 1/2's and 8 1/2's, so all the bolts will be the same size, mine were the same)

The correct measurement should be within the range of 17mm's to 20 mm's. Shorter than 17mm is a safety concern, longer than 20mm is potential problems hitting the brake calipers...

If your not in that range, simply add or subtract from the size your lug bolt shaft length currently is to get the new length for the correct range.

Example, if your using a 39mm length bolt to measure with, and you measure only 12mm's sticking through, (5 mm's too short), you need to buy a new bolt size of 39 + 5 (or 44mm) to get you in the proper length range. After looking at what sizes are available to buy, you may need to buy a 45mm if 44's aren't offered.
