The 19s you have don't have the correct offset that's why it came with spacers...

Installation is very simple. Take off your stock wheels.<br> <br> Attach the spacer onto the 19 inch CL wheel.<br> They may have give you two sizes for the spacers. The thinner ones go to the 8.5 wheel and the thicker to the 9.5 wheel.<br> <br> The lugs should be longer as well to accomdate the addition of the spacers.<br> <br> Once the spacers are in place, just bolt the new wheel in. If the spacer you got is hub centric, make sure to align it properly first before installing the new lugs.

Re: this should work!!! :)

So what exactly doesnt look right?? And by the way, are the wheels really heavy? I think they'll look crazy on your car.

Did you get the wheels, spacers, and bolts as one package? Where did you get them from?

lol..... more inside

the wheels are about 25 lbs each.... <br> <br> ok what i was confused about is the lug nuts.... <br> <br> Im use to the ones where you take the lugnut off (looks like bolt) and the studs are sticking out of the roter.... Im assuming now that the studs come out of the rotes when you take the lugs off a benz....<br> <br> yea it was hole package.....
