I want to get some AMG aero II wheels, but the offset is 35mm, would that fit my 500SE or would i have to get spacers ? i dont want to get spacers

1. they are really expensive
2. i dont trust them

Thank you in advance for your reply!

What is the width of the rims?

Standard set-up is 7.5x15", ET 25.

If you go with wider rims (8" - 10") you should be looking for lower ET numbers, down to -12.7 for the rear 10" rims of the AMG SEC Widebody.

You may be able to run a rim with an ET of 35 without touching the calipers or rubbing issues, but the set-up will not be correct.

The AMG Monoblock II are nice rims. I got some 16" on my 1990 560 SEC.

They'll probably fit, but they are going to sit 10mm (1/2") further inside the fender than the standard wheel and you may not like that look.
