Does anyone know if you can fit 18in wheels on 2021 amg35? I’m seeing some conflicting results on Google. Looking to put 18in wheels with AT tires on for some back road / dirt road driving. Thanks

I can't speak to the new model but on the earlier cars some 18" wheels would fit over the brake calipers and some would not. It was a trial and error process to find out which was which.

Just when you find a rim internal diameter that will circumferentially clear the large front calipers you're confronted with internal spoke clearance from the face of the calipers which is dependent on positive offset (higher positive offset number equates to more 'tucked into' the wheel wells).
As Wayne cites the only way to be sure is to visit a wheel/tire shop that will allow you to test fit before purchasing. Or one that accepts returns if ordering online.
Although there are 'standards' as far as numbers go, often there are still surprises. :confused:
