#3 of 42 Larger wheels and tires...
Aug 16, 2001 (9:05 am)
I own a 2001 E430 4Matic. It came with 17" stock aluminum 5 slot wheels and Pirelli P7000 SuperSport P235/45/17 94W M+S tires.
I would like to put larger chrome wheels and tires on this vehicle. My idea was to use the stock wheels and tires for the winter and the new ones for the summer.
What is the largest wheel and tire combination I can use?
Who has already done this?
My concern is that I do not want to get incorrect readings from my speedometer/odometer/on-board navigation...
Thanks for any input!

i would go to 18 inch max since anything bigger than that is very expensive. try the tirerack.com people. they are great and have sample pic of your car with the big wheels on it.
#6 of 42 Wiper blades
Jul 25, 2002 (11:33 am)
I just went to replace my wiper blades for the first time for my E320 (2002). The blades did not really last that long(6 months) with not much use. Does anyone have any suggestions for replacing them with something other than the normal replacement wiper blade. Something that might last a little longer?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Not sure they last any longer, but I switched to a standard 24" blade a year or two ago and they work just fine. You won't even notice the 1" less coverage. The good news is the blade refills are available at any auto store for less than half the MB price.. You will have to initally buy the entire blade assembly, usually around $7-8 dollars; then it's just the refills from then on..
#9 of 42 cell phone for 1999 E 320

The factory Phone was analogue that year and has since been rendered obsolete, Is there an aftermarket digital phone that can be adapted to the original setup. What did all the original owners do when the cell phone companies went digital. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm in the same boat sculptordean. I'm not sure but I think MB has a new phone that will retro fit. Motorola V60 or something like that. Check it out!
#11 of 42 What CD changer for a 2001 E430?

We would like to install a cd changer in our '01 E430 trunk. Anybody know what model changer and bracket we need? Thanks

Does anybody know of a "trading post" where I can share and obtain different COMAND CD cuts? I have successfully burnt a copy of my COMAND CD and use the copy in case I lose the original. I'm interested in obtaining (a) a newer version for my region as well as (b) other regions.
