What type of wheels are they? 8.5x19 235/35R19 FA & 9.5x19 265/30R19 might fit ok on your `01 CLK. The 2 things that will determine whether or not they will are:

1. Offset. About a 31 offset (ET31) on the wheels should be fine. Most likely a fender roll should be done to prevent any rubbing issues.

2. Lug bolts. The `05 E500 uses 14x1.5 lug bolts. Your `01 CLK uses 12x1.5 lug bolts. Make sure you have a set of 12x1.5 lug bolts that seat up with the wheels or they will not work.

If the wheels are the right offset, (it's stamped on the back of them, a two-digit number following the letters "ET") then you can source the proper lug bolts from RAD through Phil at otisincla.com. They are the 14mm ball seat atop 12mm threaded shafts, hardened, etc. Great quality, excellent prices.

I don't think I'd be too concerned about the size and weight being any unusual stress. The ride quality will probably suffer quite a bit, but if you want the look and aren't jumping curbs the suspension pieces should be fine.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg
