Also here's what I'm trying to do....

19 x 8.5 ET 35
19 x 9.5 ET 42

TSW Nurburgring

Conti DW

265/30/19 or 275/30/19

I will order spacers if I have to. I'm going to get new TPMS sensors from TireRack too. anyone have experience with ordering them? Stock Sport height.

I'm more worried about the front offset more than the rear tire size. 265 is what I'm going with. I have only seen one other C300 with those offsets and it was sick after he dropped it.

Would 265 be too wide? I didn't think the C300 had that much power?

I think anything smaller than that and it's not going to look right on a 19 x 9 1/2" rim. I can break the 245's loose just fine.

I also have the crappy Mich pilot HX all seasons too though. The worst tire ever. I'm also thinking about buying the OEM C63 18's he has for sale instead. I would just have to buy two rears so I wouldn't be spending anymore than I was planning to anyway. Then I could add spacers to get them flush and lower my car. Still deciding. I think it will end up being the test fit that will be the deciding factor. I'm going to get Pilot Super Sports if I go with the AMG rims.
