I current have the silver AMG 20 inch rims (on 235/40/20 tyres) on my 2015 GLA45 AMG.

Looking at purchasing a set of 2013 multi black spoke A45 AMG 19 inch rims.

Planning to also wrap them with 245/45/19 tyres.

I'm wondering will the new set up rub against the suspension?
Hit my AMG calipers?
Close the gap from top of tyre to fender/wheel guards?

You’ll lose 3.5mm in the arch gap, but the wheel poke is 5mm closer.. meaning even more tucked than stock. Unless you’re trying to add spacers too I don’t think it would work out too well. I had an opportunity to buy OEM CLA 45 wheels for cheap and ran into similar poke issues.

The GLA has about a 10mm wider track than the CLA on OEM setups and I don’t know for sure about the A45, but would assume it to be more similar to the CLA.

Thanks for replying mate appreciate it..
I don't mind the poke being inner as I can always add spacers.

I'm more concerned if it will clear the suspension struts and calipers..
