From Toronto, Canada:<br> Will keep the original steel wheels [7.0 x16 with 205/55 16 tires)for winter. But come spring would like to buy alloys/tires [Bridgestone Pole Positions or Dunlop 9000s]:<br> <br> 1. Thinking 7.5 x17 allround would be good wheel choice, consistent with factory [NO SHIMS;NO FENDER ROLLING]. But as the car is black I think a darker wheel [anthracite,or even black] would look better than shiny silver AMGs. What would my options be? <br> 2. Any negative to having a staggered setup (like on the C32)with 8.5 wheels at rear. My car has the stock chassis --not 'Sport'-- and I'm not planning on chopping springs for some time... <br> 3. Why 40 ratio at back with staggered setup (and not 45)? And would a 50 series tire send things out of whack on 7.5 (or 8.0) x 17 or 18 inch wheels? <br> Thanks,<br> Mark
