Might lose a few MPGs, but gain a few style points

That's all that matters, right?

18" staggered AMG wheels from a newer car.

Around here wheels like that would be toast in no time. How well do they handle 10" deep holes?

Yes, but they're also quite a bit wider, which hurts MPGs. They look nice though

Those look great! I've been kind of lusting after some older Penta's for mine but I may have to go your route to clear the larger brakes I have for the front.

You also have to keep in mind two or three PSI under inflated is a problem.I am glad to see the county cop's driving on the wrong side of the road in certain spots around here. And that would be my response if I ever got pulled over for doing it.

That might be a little difficult. E55s are airmatic struts.
