25mm W126 offset on a 190E 16v????

hi
I have a set of w126 wheels 7x15 with a offset of 25mm
I know the stock 190e 16v wheels are 7x15 with offset of 44mm
will a stock 16v tire 205/55/15 rub with a 25ET , or will i need a spacers or no problems,
thanks
dave

25mm offset sticks out to far and will most likely cause rubbing and alter the handling 'in a bad way' which can not be remedied by spacers which will just move the wheel further out

IMHO 8J x 16H2 ET34 are the best size for a 2.3-16

the stock rims sit quite far in and a 7.5" rim with an ET46 will stick out around 8 mm from the stock rim. not much of a difference

s-class wheels require different lug hardware ..... so they won't work correctly

Luke, does the W126 also use 14mm lugbolts like W140 & W220. Thanks.
