just wondering if anyone knows the max rear tyre size without it rubbing on the wheel arches when fully loaded for my W210 face lift E55 AMG. im thinking about 285/35 ZR18 because at the moment they are the standard ones and are 265/35 ZR18 and there doesent seem to be much more room to go much wider please can some one help before i buy the wrong tyres!!

The wheel arches allow enough room for a 285mm section width tire. However, one needs to pay attention to the width of the rear rims: nine inches. The optimum section width for a nine inch rim is 275mm. :thumbsup:

275 is stock set up from the factory. i wouldnt go more than that unless you have wider rims in the back..like 9.5 diameter and then you can go wider
