Installing wheel spacers on your Mercedes can provide a wider, more aggressive stance that looks great. But choosing the right size wheel spacers for your particular Mercedes model and wheels is crucial. Here’s a guide on determining what size Mercedes wheel spacers you need for proper fitment and safety.

First – Measure Your Stock Offset for Mercedes wheel spacers

The offset of your existing Mercedes wheels is the first key measurement. Offset is the distance between the wheel’s hub mounting surface and the wheel’s centerline. Measured in millimeters, offset can be positive, negative, or zero.

  • Positive offset means the hub mounting surface is toward the inside of the car.
  • Negative offset means the hub surface is toward the outside.
  • Zero offset means the hub surface is even with the centerline.

Most Mercedes wheels have positive offset. To measure it, you’ll need a metric tape measure. With the wheel mounted on the car, measure from the wheel’s hub mounting surface to the center of the rim’s outer face. That distance, in millimeters, is your stock offset.

Know Your New Offset Goal for Mercedes wheel spacers

Once you know your stock offset, you can figure out what new offset you want after installing spacers. More aggressive offsets are generally in the 15-35mm range for most Mercedes sedans and 25-45mm range for Mercedes SUVs.

Just add or subtract the spacer width from your stock offset number. If your stock offset is +45mm and you install 20mm spacers, your new offset would be +25mm (more aggressive).

How do I know what size Mercedes wheel spacers I need?

Spacer Width Depends on Goals

Spacer width determines how much the offset changes. Common spacer widths for Mercedes models are:

  • 10-15mm for a subtle change
  • 20-25mm for a moderate stance enhancement
  • 30mm+ for an aggressive track or show car look

Wider spacers push the wheels outward more, so make sure you have adequate clearance around brakes, suspension, and fenders. Check local regulations on maximum spacer width too.

Get Hub-Centric Spacers for Mercedes

Mercedes wheels have a hub-centric design, meaning the wheel centers on the hub when mounted. Get hub-centric spacers designed specifically to fit your Mercedes’ bolt pattern and hub size. This ensures proper wheel alignment and weight distribution.

Check Spacer Construction

Quality wheel spacers are CNC machined from aircraft grade billet aluminum for strength and durability. Look for brands using ISO Grade 12.9 bolts too.
