Hello,

Patient: Cla 35 AMG

Just for reference cause many people asked me questions about specs of my 20” setup on Facebook group and occasionally on traffic lights i leave it here.
I have bought used 20” Mercedes GLC rims 8” wide (4 the same). After driving almost month on 235/30 Bridgestones I had enough of lack of comfort. And proceeded with measurements and managed to fit 235/35 tyres. I tried couple of them and the only one that fit are
Yokohama Advan Sport V105
235/35 R20 92 Y XL, RPB, ZR
Ofc I didn’t tried all models but for your time and effort saving I recommend those.

Wow that’s impressive. How’s the ride quality? I’m running 18’s with 45’s with a 1” drop. The ride quality is MUCH better but I’m scraping the fender wall on bumps.
Got any pics of the 45's as personally feel the CLA looks underwheeled with stock tyre size

I’ve been looking at 19” and want to keep a decent side wall for comfort which then I’ll have to swap the spring/shocks to something adjustable, thinking half inch drop.

So they are 18's

They look great!! So 225/45/18 tyre?

Is that stock ride height?

Any rubbing

It’s probably the drop (25 mm) makes the wheel-well smaller. Lots of upper rubbing on decent bumps. That thing with a drop would look pimp. But if you live somewhere with bad roads you might have to settle for 35’s and then you get back to the wheel-well space issue.

I live in Scotland. It would be similar as to driving on the surface of the moon. The roads are horrific.

The CLA has a really low nose on it as is and almost scrapes at stock height
