re: rims, like what ruBENZ said it's a matter of personal choice.

Thanks for the posts. I like the 19's best, but was not sure if they would fit. Would you know of a source in Orlando that you would recommend for wheels? Also looking to add some personality.......... from what I’ve seen there's not a lot that can be done to this car…. am I Right?

Hi, gatonls and welcome to the forum. You'll probably find it a bit more useful if you hang out with the majority of W210 owners in the 210 sedan forum. You're in the AMG forum and there is lots more information in the non-AMG section.

While you might like the look of 19s you'll suffer (and I mean that literally) a significant loss in ride quality. Stock was 16 on the non-AMG 210 chassis and going to 18s you notice a ramp up in ride harshness, but it's a big jump at the 19 level.

There are other mods that can be done, lowering, body kits, suspension improvements, etc. but it's a question of how much money you want to spend.

Take care and enjoy the ride...and we'll see you over in the regular 210 forum.
