I know there have been a number of members who have, probably able to find some more info in the wheels and tires section. I know that some fit, some do not, and some simply require spacers. Might be able to get some other wheels with wobble nuts too.

I'm interested to see if your SC/TC setup works out or if you have abandoned it? I remember a lot of naysayers on here btu I hope it didn't discourage you.

I was laid off due to "slow economy" and reduction in force so i no longer have the connections to get the supercharger for cheap.... so that project will have to wait for a later date and possibly a newer benz. but I think i have it mostly worked out as far as design goes

Ya i am pretty sure i bought the wrong spacers for my car and since i "modified" them slightly they wont take them back even though they were the wrong ones. I cant afford the $130 a pair for the correct eibach spacers so i have listed the wheels locally. they are from a 2001 C240 if anyone is interested
