Hi guys, I am changing to a 17" wheels. My 190e was 1.6" lowered with eibach springs. Which one would be the right size tire for the 17" and yet fit the wheel arch. 205/40/17 or 215/40/17. Thanks.

215/40/17 is nice. You may be able to get away with 45's with out rubbing.

Here is mine with 215/40/17

Course tabrad was trying to run 215/40/17 as well and ended up cracking a rim because his weren't made as well as the OEM benz rims



So like i told him get the 45's and save your rims.

there goes the evo rim dream.

Now, any recommendations for the tires?

Goodyear F-1, Continental Conti-Sport, Michelin Pilot?

definitely go with 215/40/17 to avoid rubbing.


or you can go with 40s in the front and 45s in the rear.
