fronts are good. dont know if 8.5 will fit in the back. if you use the search button there are plenty of old threads that will tell you every size you can fit with and without spacers

i fit clk 17x7.5 et35 with 215/40/17 tires all around...

the rears would be close, but they aren't moving much.. would have to go with a 215 width tire to fit i think with the 8.5 rears... might look a little stretched though

I have purchased my AMGs that came off a CLK55. I have the same size that you have indicated. The tire size I am using are 215/40/17 all around. The rears are slightly stretched, since the 17x8.5 are staggered. As for suspension, I have Bilstein sport shocks and H&R race springs. You might consider in rolling-in all four fenders, to prevent from ruining your tires or rubbing everytime you hit a bump. Because, I had to do it. Here are a few pics of my car with the wheels and lowered.

whats this about rolling the fenders in>
If you place your hand on the wheel arch, you'll feel a U-shaped design that is formed to give the arch additional strength. "Rolling" the wheel arch will flatten that U-section and provide more clearance.

Before rolling, always make sure the inside of the fender is really clean and it wouldn't hurt to spray a mastic corrosion inhibitor before mashing the metal flat.

also, heating up the paint a bit with a heatgun or the likes will prevent cracking.
