Side profile p0rn pics please.
I'd add a DIY fender spacer kit on the front fenders too. I made ones 1" thick.
I have to make another set soon for the 420e.
But if you do this, as other posters have never elaborated the full monty of what you should do when adding these spacers to have it look oem (otherwise it looks hokey imo):
inner liner needs to be widened at the outside edge due to gap - easily remedy ===> plastic weld a strip of PnP liner onto the edge
rocker cover skirt end needs to match the fender widening above and the end cap needs a gap filler ===. easily done
Test drive under all conditions to check for any rubbing, tire, wheel interference.
They look fine to me. 17s, imo are the max for combination of fit, ride and comfort.
Max tire width is 225* (215s would be better suited) for the front end.
*Note: not all tires have the same profile so fitment under the wheel well or close to, will depend on the tire brand.
Hi guys i have a w202 x reg c class mercedes i have a set of 18 in staggered fit monoblock wheels for these wheels do i need longer bolts?? If so what length do i need also will i need spacers on back i think they are 8.5 front 9.5 rear
I got like no fender space on the rear. I gotta definitely roll the lips. Might need to pull the front fender about 1/4”. According to the search of everyone’s experience with this setup I thought it would fit 100 percent no modifications
Fine tune ride height with spring pads.
Check your springs pads and find out how many dimples.
Rears only have #1-3 (8mm 13mm 18mm)
Hoping your present rear spring pad is #1 or 2. Then you can increase to #3 = 5mm increase from #2.
This equates to approx. 10mm increase in height at the wheel well edge.
