Which size rims are best?
Hi, I'm trying to shop for rims for my '91 300E. I'm looking at some 17" rims or possibly 18" rims. My preferances are Carlsson, Brabus, or BBS. I have seen some rims that spec out 18 x 8.5 with a 35mm offset. Will that dimension fit well on this model Benz? Is there a big difference in ride quality between 17" and 18".
I'm also wondering what some of you folks think of buying these name brand rims on Ebay. Even though they are used, some people sell a set of Brabus rims for under 1K. It seems too cheap, and I question if they are authentic. Are there knock-offs that have the name brand stamped on them, and are not made by the original manufacturer? Thanks for the help.
