I am interested in getting some wheels and tires for my 260e but want to know what size would fit such as offset and max tire size. I used to have and 83 280se from germany and I ran 245.45.16 on it no problem. I want the rims on my w124 to as big as they could be and still be drivable everyday. I use it as my daily driver. I am planning on dropping it about 2 inchs also . wouldn't mind even getting some nice stock rims to keep that stock look but clean. Thanks in advance

17X7.5 ET35+ OK 17X8 NOT RECOMMENDED WILL GIVE WIDE TRACK APPEARANCE AND TIRES WILL STICK...

17X7.5 ET35+ OK 17X8 NOT RECOMMENDED WILL GIVE WIDE TRACK APPEARANCE AND TIRES WILL STICK OUT OF THE WHEEL WELLS. MAY RUB WHEN CAR IS FULLY LOADED.

Tyres for 17X7.5 ET35 -- 205/50-17 front, 225/45-17 rear?

I'm thinking of getting some 17X7.5 ET35 AMG alloys. I have some nice winter tires I'd like to use on the wheels I buy. They are Dunlop WinterSport M2:

205/50-17 front
225/45-17 rear

Can I fit these two different tyre sizes on the 7.5" rim?

Thanks a lot for any info,

Mike

Re: they both will fit on a 7.5

they both will fit on a 7.5" wheel .... no problem
Thanks a lot luke.

When you said 17x7.5 ET35+, does that include 17x7.5 ET37? The bigger the offset number, the more it's moved "in", right? Are there weird issues with spacers/bolts too long when installing?

I have a 1995 E320 (W124).

Could I use 8,5 x 17 H2 ET 30 on the rear? 95 E320 W124

Along with the 7.5 x 17 ET 37 on the front?

I really appreciate the answers, and sorry for asking so many questions. As you can tell I'm getting closer to making a purchase decision... ;-)
