Pix are a little fuzzy, but your car looks very nice. Personally, I'd leave the centers silver. The '94 hood/grill/light update looks great!

Nice job!

New pics of my 300E

Hello Board,

After a long battle with my 1987 300E and the search for a nice paint job and rims. They are 18 inch HP rims. I have finally added rims to my car. What do you guys think? I am contemplating whether or not to paint the inner part of the rim blue to match my car. What do you all think so far?

Mike,

What's the width and offset of those wheels, and what tire size are you running? Looks great!

Well the rims are 18x8 et38. The tires are Kuhmo Ecsta 225/40/18.

I have very minimal rub up front and NO rub in the rear. I am thinking about lowering the car, but the thought of hard rubbing and "cambering" are blocking my path. The front fender gap is not that much, I guess those stock shocks are a little worn out, therefore "lowering" my car a little.

Mike, that's awesome. I think that's the PERFECT offset for that size and width. You nailed it bro!

Nice wheels! (I mean the car too!)

I'm with Glen on the wheel paint. Keep them silver throughout and they'll better compliment that great paint job.
