Luke-

I'm looking to lower my 1993 300E with H&R Lower Performance Spring and Bilstein Sport Shocks. I am also looking to purchase the 17" AMG Monoblock II wheels to use with this set-up. I was looking to run 215/45-17 Bridgestone Potezna RE750 tires on this set-up. My question was could I use 7.5"W wheels in the front and 8.5"W wheels in the back? Would this upset the geometery of the car alot? I mainly wanted to do this for cosmetic reasons, I think that a little fatter tire in the rear makes a vehicle look much more aggressive.

Can I accomplish my goal or will I have rubbing concerns? Also, can I even run this set-up of 17" wheels at all without rubbing?
Thanks
