I was wondering if any of you could confirm weather this would be compatible with my car, I am yet to receive the manual.

Also what tires would I need for these rims?

Thanks a bunch guys.

You putting those rims on your Benz, is like putting on Skecher shoes with an Armani suit. Those rims are ugly and cheap!

HAHAHA I am sorry I dont mean to laugh but jesus you guys are on a rampage on this poor dude... hahah Yes his taste is not like ours... But do your own thing right??

hahha the seccond wheels are better then the first ones but still they just seem like wheels someone would put on a 93 maxima or something.

Remember your car is the smallest of the benz lineup so chunky block big body wheels are not always the best look....

What color is your car too?? I am a fan of black on black or black on white but anything else looks ehh...

Again do your own thing but maybe try photoshopping them on your whip first...
:)

Also you might wana find a more repuatable wheel maker. Baccarac Custom wheels sounds like something you would see in the back of a DUB magazine. Wheels that are that cheap (1200$ for 20's with tires even) seem like there is going to be problems lurking ahead.

yea i just threw up in my mouth.
LMAO!!! At least Joey is trying to give some advice. I would go with more of a spoke pattern myself with a type of dish.

I wouldn't rush any decision, this is a major mod that will either make or break the style of your whip.
