Hello, I just recently purchased an 09 Brabus Coupe, all black. I must say yours looks good with 17s all around. Now that you have had on them on a while how do you like it? Any problems with bending the rims? Still no rubbing? Thanks.
Hi from Florida. Yes, I did the conversion a couple of weeks ago. No issues at all. No rubbing or handling problems. I used Hankook 215/35-17 tires on the front, same as stock rear Brabus tires. If you go to a taller tire, you will need a 5MM front spacer. Tiger Wong is running 215/40-17's all around and was getting some rubbing on the front. He also has 30MM spacers on the rear, but just for looks according to him. I have not had the alignment checked yet, but I will soon. I have put less than 100 miles on the new set up.
I plan on installing Brabus rear wheels on the front of my Brabus Cabrio. I believe that you have recently done the same. Are there any issues regarding fit, drivability etc? Should the front camber be adjusted ? Also, I am wondering if I can use a little taller tire, to help protect the rim, and improve the ride. Your thoughts?
