    CLK AMG Wheels

    Does anyone have these fitted to a Coupe?

    I know i would need wobbly bolts to correct the 5x112 but would I have any issues with the 8.5J combined with the ET35?
    Also would my current 215/35/18 tyres fit?



    Thanks

    Not seen them on a coupe yet

    ET 35 is a touch tight

    8.5 is a touch tight

    215's wil fit on the wheels, it will give a little stretch which you will need to get them to fit.

    Basically yes they will fit although it may be a little tight without doing a possible little work to the arches, which worse way will need rolling.

    To pull them off it needs to be low

    Im on coilovers so height shouldnt really be an issue as ive still got along way left on the thread to go down!
    How much on average should i be looking to have my arches rolled?

    Get the wheels first and trial fit them, if you are going to get them rolled you get them rolled the whole way round.

    You will also need a spigot ring

    im not sure how much of a dif an 18" wheel makes to having a 17" wheel like i had on my coupe. but i was running 7.5j et30 front wheels and 8.5j et0 rear wheels.

    i had my arches rolled and was running 195/40/17 tyres

    it will be possible i think. youve just got to get them and take a look
