Whats the CORRECT spacer size for fitting 19' CL wheels 8.5 and 9.5 inch wide on a clk430? I've seen too many contradicting statements. Some say I need 8mm for the front and 12mm in the back. Some say 15mm just in the back and some said 15mm all around. Has anyone actually put 19x8.5/9.5 CL wheels on their CLK and have no problems? I appreciate any help thanx

I did, they asked me all kinds of q's that I didnt have the answer to, so I figured it would be

easier to get the info from somebody who has actually done it already.

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION

I HAVE CL-2 WHEELS 19' ON MY CAR AND IM USING 10MM SPACERS ALL AROUND FROM H&R!!!! WHAT FRANK SAYS IS CORRECT ALSO YOU CAN PUT 8 UP FRONT AND 12 IN THE REAR BUT YOU HAVE TO GET THOSE SPECAIL MADE!! LET ME PUT THIS IN A WAY U CAN UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 10MM AND 12MM IS ABOUT A 1/8 OF AN INCH NOW I ASK U THIS DO U THINK U WILL SEE AN 1/8 OF AN INCH ON THE CAR???? ANSWER IS NO SO IF YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO ME AND GET SPACERS FROM H&R....THEN U WILL BE OK AND SAVING SOME $$$$ BY THE WAY I NEVER RUB EITHER UP FRONT OR THE REAR AND THE CAR SITS MINT!!!! OHHH BY THE WAY ITS LOWERED ALSO HOPE THAT HELPS!!!!<br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> '

Pete..is totally right about you can't not see the different 1/8 in. I am also are using............

<br> H&R spacer too. H&R don't make 8 mm or 12 mm as standard for sale but they do make 5,10,15mm etc. The 8 and 12mm spacer are 'CUSTOM' made and also will cost you $$$$ for special order.

I just installed mine, Spacers are the same size..... but they rub

I just installed my 19X8.5 front and 19x 9.5 rear with the same size spacer.... yep they rub.... the front are sticking out to far... when I turn them all the way to eithor side i get the rubbage..... I think i might try them tomarrow with no spacer up front and see how that does...
