I'm looking to purchase some 19" rims for my ML350. I had my mind set on either Brabus or Lorinser but I can't seem to find any 19" rims by these manufacturers that (according to wbsites) fit my ML. I want to run 285/55/19 can someone suggest some rim options???? Thanks.

285/55-19 has an overall diameter of 31.3" and the ML350 uses a diameter of 29.0" ... I would suggest that you go with a 285/45-19

Thanks, I love the rim....but won't 285/45-19 affect the ride???? if so maybe I should settle for the 18" so I can run the 285/55/18 and not sacrifice ride quality. What do you think????

even with a 285-45-19, which is 29" tall, you will have 5.0" of sidewall so the ride quality will not be that bad ...... the 285/55-18 is 30.3" tall so I wouldn't recommend that size either

But doesn´t all those bolts make the changing from summer- to winter tires very time-consuming?

OK, but does the wheel come fully assembled, or is it like an IKEA furniture where you get a small tool (and some lousy instructions) to put together the pieces yourself?

Luke, Are there other name brand wheels (O.Z. 0r BBS)that'll fit the 2003 ML500 in 19" or 20"? Also, what is the quietest tire for it? Thanks.

Ive read on this site, the stock wheels for the 2008 C300 sport are 7.5 and 8.5 width. Does anyone know the offset on those wheels...Im trying to go to a 19" 8.5/9.5 combination. I was told a +50 offset would do the trick, but I want to know what is the original spec?
