19's are usually a no no on the non 500e bodies because their fenders can't take the mass. 17's are just under max for teh standard bodiesthanks guys.I ask the quetion because I just picked up a 94 500e and I sort of liked how the car sits with these.I hear going 19 on these cars is a no no .Mean lookin 500 by the way Andrea
Some will be suprized if they weigh thier stock wheels AND tires, my 19" set up is only about 5 lbs more then my stock wheels and my 19" wheels are heavy, but the tires help to balance it out.cant believe im gonna say this, from my previous posts, but... 19" wheels will kill the performance of any 124, even the 500. there i said it.
(unles you buy some super light rays forgies like te37 or simerler, and use wobble bolts, but they wont be mercedes wheels, so most of you will winge about originalness...)
For me the key is tires that rate HIGH in ride quality and that are low in weight. Most guys look for the best grip but I dont road race on the street so that not higest on my list.Im directing this question to the guys with the 19s , hows the ride? Any down sides?
