nice, you should be able to bump up to 285s on the rear if need be. not sure if your clearence though. I would think you could get bigger than 245s on the front though. your tires may be a tad to tall you may want your next set to be 40 profile instead of 45 for the front

Thank you, That was a very nice complement...Took me 4 months to decide on and finish the design...

These cars are very difficult to put rims on, unlike C45 or 6, the C3 has so many lines on her already that a complex design dosnt look good... so simple is best imho.... and to me brushed is perfect for the finish, again... less blingie...

but that is jmho.... nothing more... peace..:cheers:

I think they look outstanding and am impressed by the stance the car has. Keep loving it. By the way, the smell of the tires is the best part of the purchase.
