I'm wondering being an R170 they still went for 632mm overall tire diameter
albeit on 17" x 7.5/8.5" rims
so
Front 225/45 (634mm), Rear - 255/40 (636mm)

if so and I was looking at 18" rims - that'd mean
Front - 225/40 (637mm), Rear - 255/35 (636mm)

And what are the stock AMG 17" offsets?
---------------------------------------------------------

Another question re the SRT-6's they run 18's and 19's...wondering if they have a bigger running diameter and what effect that would have on the perfomance of the car?

I'm guessing AMG have tried to tune everything (particulalry suspension).
The fact that Chysler then went and put 18" and I suspect bigger wheel arches to suit is up to them.....
