Will replacing the 17' OEM rims with 18' rims on my clk 320 affect much of its acceleration?<br>
Because larger rims usually use wider tires, so the friction become bigger and slow the acceleration. But how much will the slowdown affect the overall performance?

It tyically only effects acceleration because of wheel weight not friction

so as long as you do not get very heavy wheels the performance will not be adversely affected

Re: clk 320 - will 18

but the rims vendor usually don't list their rim's weight, so where can i find lighter rims that look good?
