Will a wheel with these specs:
18x8.5
offset 35
Bolt pattern 5x112
C.B. is 66.6

Fit on my 2000 E430 4 Matic without ANY issues?

I would assume my 16" factory 5 spokes have a 41 offset and are 7.5 wide, no?

No

problem on the 4 matic.You won't be lowering it and you are not staggering it.So 235/40/18's all around.You neglected to mention what the rims were off of.Some of the newer models have different lug seat and dimensions,requiring special lugs.About 50 bucks a set.

Don't know what they were off of. Special lugs if needed is no big deal.

Will that size wheel/tire combination look like a ghetto car? (As in, tiny amount of sidewall and tons of fenderwell gap)

Will the wheels stick out at all?

They won't

look getto,they will be the same rolling diameter and the gap will remain the same.You can close up the gap some on the 4 matic by going to the smallest spring pads.Or by removing the coils and having them cold saw cut 1/2 to 1 coil.
Search the forum for the pics of the 4 matic lowered by spring chop.Do not use a torch:eek:
The tires will not stick out ,and a 235 with a 40 profile will have enough sidewall to still perform properly,while still looking fine.

you can use the tire and rim virtual viewer on Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels to give you an idea of how it will look.

17's would give you better ride and performance quality.
