i have a 2002 C class. I'm looking to buy a set of 19x8.5 wheels in the front and 19x9.5 in the rear within a week. Is this size too wide or big? I know it can be done, but what are the consequences? I'm looking to drop it either 1' or 1.4' How much do you think i will have to shave my fenders if I go this route? Any pics of 1-1.4' drop with 19's would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. I value your experienced comments.<p>cx1217872-a.irvn1.occa.home.com

is this because 8.5 and 9.5 will rub the fenders if the car is lowered??

if the offset is 31mm and 235/35/19 (front) and 265/30/19 (back) given that the car is lowered about 1.5', will this rub the fenders, etc? many wheels manufacturers with 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 wheels are recommending these tire sizes including tirerack.com.<br> <br> luke, are u hearing problems about this setup?<br> <br> <p>
