im not sure if the CLK is standard with a staggered set up, I thought it was usually 16" 7J with about 225 width tires? But as for choosing staggered or normal, for me it had to be staggered. More sporty, suites the car and fills the huge void of a gap that our cars have on the rears...W208 chassis comes with the staggered setup from the factory but is there really a difference if i upgrade to 225 all around? Thinking about getting a rim and tire package.
Hahaha what do you mean handled like a family sedan? Truth is I have 225 all around right now but it's been so long I forgot how it drives staggered.In my opinion, staggered makes a big difference in handling. In the past I ran my CLK430 with the smaller 4 wheels all the way around while my larger rears were getting refinished and my CLk handled like a family sedan. Not good.
I have been looking to change out my wheels and tires for a while; three bent rims from this winters pot holes so timing seems right.what do you guys think about these rims.

I know it looks agrassive on the rear cambre but its an illusion, as the more the wheels stick out the more I think you notice it.! beleive it or not my rears wear perfectly even, if anything I get a little more wear in the middle of the tire as you tend to get that with wide 255's.A1, your rear is tipped out at the bottom and it looks like you are getting inside tire wear. Get Mels camber arms. They are on sale
The W208 320 never came with staggered wheels, it came with 205/50/16 all around, only the 430/55 had staggered. I think, not sure, that the 430 staggered was with the AMG appearance package though.Did the dealership do me wrong by not putting on staggered wheels? Opinions welcome.
