I have a 95 s420. I bought the car with 18" AMG monoblocks and 255/45/18 tires all around. I saw on tirerack.com that 235/50/18 were recomended for the front and 255/45/18 were an option for the back. My car has been eating tires like crazy. I want to buy new ones but don't know which way to turn first. My question is:

1. How do I tell if I have 18x8.5 or 18x9.5 size rims?
2. If I have the bigger of those two sizes could I put the 235/50/18 tire all around? or should I put the larger size on back and the smaller size on front?
3. Can the 255/45/18 set up thats on my car now cause any problems as far as suspension wise or ride quality.

although our site lists the 235/50 size we typically use that size for the staggered set up in the front if all 4 of your wheels are the same size they would be 8.5's not 9.5's ... I would suggest that you use a 245/45-18 on all four corners
