I want to upgrade to 18" wheels. Tirerack lists either 18X8 with 235/50/18's all round...or staggered with that in front and 18X9 with 255/45/18 in the rear (both ET44). Stock wheels are 16X7 w/ET51, I believe. Some on the W140 board have posted they run the 255/45/18's all round. What is the likelihood of them rubbing in the front with the 9" rim width and 44 offset? I want to be able to rotate tires whichever way I go. Thanks for any first-hand knowledge available. (I love Tirerack, but I have found from experience that they're a bit conservative as to what will fit on a given car).

Mike
