good luck mate

the only other option is to get a standard set widened and that costs roughly 250 a pair depending where you go

A fair few people think that also.............and they should be ashamed of themselves! :wink:

No the cop rims are bigger AND wider.

yes their hard to find. Interceptors are 7" wide, normal ones are 6" wide

A race shop can make them as wide as you want. I had mine widened to 7" but left the same backspacing so it had a deep dish.... looked pretty cool

max recommended width:

6" rim - 225's
7" rim - 235's

Of course you can put whatever you want on them, but they will look like balloons, and tread will be lifted up at the edges which defeats the purpose of a wider tyre

^^ that looks interesting but the offset doesnt look quite right. Be worth a try though if it goes cheap enough

i contacted the seller of the rims and he said the backspacing is 120mm.

Now if i can remember correctly, the stock width rims have 98mm backspacing, so these Mercedes rims have the extra inch going inwards so im not sure if it would foul the suspension or not
