Roll the fenders

Hard to say, without first knowing the offset of your "aftermarket" wheels. If they have standard offsets they quite possibly MAY rub when you have a FULL passenger load or a load in the boot or full tank of petrol. But will probably be okay when its just you though. The trick is to roll those fenders. SUBMAN did a post to benzsport.com with photos of how to roll your fenders. I "rolled" my rears on my 400E with a HAMMER .
You have to be careful and really know/watch what you're doing. Just did a little of the lip at a time and gradually closed it up against itself. Turned out great, no chipping,flaking, rusting, etc.
Before trying to correct with pads, I'd first trying the roll trick.
