I'm driving a 96 E320 and just bought some 18 X 8.5 rims. I'm deciding whether to go with 235/40 on all four or to go staggered with 265/35 on the back. I know it looks better, but what other pros and cons do I need to consider?? Any input is appreciated.

caution for ABS?

i have 18x8.5 rims with 225/40ZR18 in front and 18x10 rims with 285/30ZR18 on the rear.

the biggest concern will be the proper functioning of your ABS system since the staggered wheels will not have the exact same diameter. it might be a problem. my 84 is pre-ABS.

also the obvious tire rotation limitations. but it looks so cool and its nice to let everyone know your car is rear wheel drive. performance is definately improved.
