I will be very very honest with you. I don't trust a Mercedes around a
corner at high speeds at all.
I have this and a 350Z... yes orange and apples but boy I wanted more
stickiness on the roads. The handling now is 7 times better. I can actually
tell.... and Hear freaky enough... these are 18X9 and 18x10. I asked what
people think because I am getting a (tacky effect) price degrade effect from
people. I see people stare and point. but they are not Mercedes users. But I
at first thought it gave the car so much elegance.
these are 18X9 and 18x10. I asked what
I actually think they aren't that bad then. From the pic, I thought they
were 20 or something, and that would hurt handling, but 18 is good. I wonder
why you would get a price degrade. Someone could buy the car, sell these
wheels, but new Benz wheels, and have cash left.
I guess a CLK with standard suspension might feel a bit loose at top speed,
but it's just a subjective sensation. CLK's peculiar front seats don't make
things better, so instead of those huge chromed alloys which look a bit too
flashy on a black car (on a silver metallic maybe...), I'd put back the
stock wheels on and then have the AMG suspension package, including thicker
anti-roll bars mounted. That way it will handle ten times better, while
preserving a comfy ride and nice looks (lowered).

To me, that actually looks pretty good. Consider that I am a person that
doesn't like chrome wheels and thinks 17inch is the limit (I like the
low-key look), and that should mean many wwould find this car to look great.
Where are you trying to sell it that you are getting a price degrade? Maybe
you are in the wrong area for this kind of car?
Well, to begin with, the CLKs were not designed to be a great
handlers...then again most MBs aren't (AMG excluded).
You might want to go here (if you aren't already):
Most of the guys that upgrade their wheels upgrade the suspension.
Because they want better handling cars as well, but you give up the
MBs classic ride comfort.
