The suspension design in the W140 series is so well laid out and forgiving that you should not notice any difference in ride comfort at any speed between the standard 16" and an aftermarket 18".

The big problem is the condition of the roads in your area.

Here, where the roads rival post-war bombed fields, most CL-class owners that had the 18" wheels fitted standard from the factory had to change to the sedan's regular 16"s.

An 18" wheel will not forgive the slightest pothole, ruining your tire forever.
