wheel offset and tire sizes for cl/cls/tlp/cls

still under construction due to more research needed so at this time this information is not guaranteed: also pm me if you have issues with a specific offset or tire size. other offsets have been tried and worked, however lip and style will contribute to a lower offset working or not working. it is standard knowledge by the good rim resellers that anything under +45 offset in any size rim is not ideal for the cl/cls/tlp/tls.

this worked for asian kid on axis rims. lip would need to be almost non existent.

this rim that actually worked for importcult on A-TL.com on HP racing TK9 rims with a +45 offset. this particular size rim does not look very great on a tl and will give a 4x4 look.

the cl and cls does have more room under the rear fenders so a slightly lower offset will generally work. in some instances the rear fender tabs were cut so the tire did not rub with weight in the rear seats.

the ideal tire configuration on these cars is:
18x7.5 with a 225/40/18 tire and a +45 offset or higher
19x7.5 with a 225/35/19 tire and a +50 offset or higher

this calculator will tell you how your new tire size will affect your speedometer. you can always have your speedometer re-calibrated if you so desire.

additional information with regards to aftermarket rims. the hub bore on the tl is 64.1 mm. the rims on a tl are hub centered. what this means is that the hub bore on after market rims are not the same as the tl and this will cause the steering wheel to shake. therefore you will always need a hub centering ring to make the aftermarket rim hub bore match up to the hub on the tl. this ring just slips inside the hub bore of the rim and is basically a reducer so that the new aftermaket rim can be center properly so that the steering wheel will not shake. sometimes the hub centering ring is part of a wheel package, but most of the time you will need to purchase them. most companies have a hub centering ring and lug nut package that they sell but they dont always remind you about them. they are necessary.
