I ran 18x8 et38 on my 300E. I did not rub, I ran 225/40/18 tires. The 17x8 should work, mecause the higher offset places the rim in a little further, if the offset were 30, you would rub for sure.

But they are only available in 17x8.....

Hi Rahulio,
Greetings from Australia. I'm in the same boat. I've just bought a '90 300CE, & don't know what is available that will fit my vehicle. The replica copies that I like are in 17 x 8 only, and all the tyre (sorry, tire in US) companies say 7.5 max width. I'd like to hear from any/all 300 owners if they have fitted a 17 x 8 rim & with what tyre sizes, to give an honest appraisal as to clearances available (both outer edge to fender, & inner edge to strut), & any rubbing problems (did the lips have to be radiused?).
Cheers, Marc.

Hello!

Welcome to the MercedesShop Forum!!!!!!!!!!

I know for sure that a 17x7.5 et 35 will fit well if you use 215 size tires....

But, yes, I only like the 17"x8" designs!

Talking

For the rear you could probably get away with a 235X45X17 or maybe even a 245X40X17if you "roll" the fenders. Not so sure on the fronts though. As listed in my sig. I wear the amg monoblocks(can't remember the offset) with 245X40X17 on the rear with no problems. No rub no nuthin, but I have flatten the inner lip on the rear fender down to nothing. As I recall the largest that I could run on the fronts before the front end graft were 235X45X17 but they rubbed just a hair at the rear of the FR fender. Now I run 245X40X17 MPS all the way around. And I run 18X9 with 245X40X18 on the FR of my 500E......The Tire Rack always quotes the "bible" and gives you a very conservative low install figure. As us constomizer if you want the true max

Thats really aggressive compared to what I want...! But tks anyways!!

ET 37 means that the wheels sits 2mm closer to the car... (inward) (compared to et35)

So, by adding an half an inch to the width of a wheel, (17x7.5 to 17x8)

That means that a 17x7.5 ET 35 wheel and a 17x8 ET 37 wheel compare as follows.......

2.54 cm in an inch, means 25.4 mm in an inch, 12.7mm in half an inch....

12.7mm - 2mm = 10.7mm

so a 17x7.5 et35 wheel sits 10.7mm (1cm) closer to the car than a 17x8 wheel.

Any chance a 16x7 235-60 would fit on a 1989 300e or ce?

Or is this tire too "tall"

17x8

I using a set of Pirelli 215-45x17 on 17x8 replica wheels.My 300E has Sportline suspension 1" drop.There is no rubbing, but it is close to the front struts so I don't think I can go wider there, nor do I need to.
