Recently the proud owner of a 1995 SL 500. Looking to upgrade tires, and have purchased a set of 18" staggered rims. Seller suggests 255/40s for the front, and 285/35s for the rear. Installer concerned about width, as am I. Will these clear? If so, any suggestion on tires? Thanks!!!

R129 Tire sizes by wheel

look for your wheel in the attachment and follow tire recommendations. Fender rolling may be needed.
