    That should be fine. I tried 19x9.5 with 265/30/19 and it clear just fine.

    What's the offset on the wheel?

    The offset is 18, super deep.

    offset is 18? won't it rub or hit against suspension parts?

    Nope but it will out your fender like crazy..


    for 9.5 width on the rear for W202 the min offset (for max lip/deep-dish) is 30mm

    so 18x9.5 ET30mm
    you could get away with offset like 28mm for more lips but you'd definitely run 255/35 tires instead of 265/35 to get more clearance

    I'm running 19x8.5's all around with a 35 offset. and I'm using H&R 15mm wheel spacers on the rear bringing me to a 20 offset.. and I still have a bit of space to the edge of my fender.. u should be ok.
    what springs u using to get a 2.5" drop??
    I used eibach springs and #1 and #2 pads.. for a drop just over 2"s all around.. maybe 2.25".

    Do you got multi piece on your Lowenhart or just 1 pc? Just wondering why you need a spacer......

    They r a 1pc rim.. the Maido MD1.. Japanese version of the Lowenhart LD1
    I believe. all the wheels r 8.5" wide with the same offset so I needed a spacer in the back to push it out more.... cheaper than getting wider rims and tires!!

    off course the 18x10 ET30..

    this is considering 18x9.5 ET 30 18x10 ET 30 with the exact same style wheel..

    Yep. If everything else is the same, the 10 will have a 1/2" more lip.

    Kinda think you should worry about getting a car first.

    No wonder it's Japanese made rims. Most of the Japanese made rims are crazy motherfuckers.
