20's on a CLA Sport

Do you guys think I can fit 20's on my CLA250 Sport? If yes, what tire size? I'm planning to keep the suspension stock.

what CFRP said.

you'd have to go for a really low profile tire if you don't want it to rub the fender. haven't seen a CLA with 20's so it's hard to say.

Edit:

Here's what a CLA looks like with 20's:

It's a CLA 180 on Concavo CW S5 wheels:

Better hope the road is super smooth and you don't have to go up or down any type of incline, because those tires will hit the wheel arches. You're in for a rough ride too with the smear of tire that's going to be on those wheels. If anything, I'd get stiffer suspension so you don't end up rubbing all of the tire off on the wheel arch every time your car goes over a pebble. I wouldn't recommend it. And that's before you consider the costs of such thin tires and big rims.

better hope you're never going to need to replace a tire, super low pros for a 20 rim will cost ya a pretty, pretty penny.

Got to pay to play.
When going for a setup like this you do need to adjust how you drive. Plus getting a flat is rare.

tires wear out, low pros wear out faster, not as much tread depth available. Play what, the drive super slow because all the bumps jangle my kindneys game?

tires are in the 300 range... I've already looked into 20's for my 45. Still debating because of all what was stated above. With the 45 and AMG suspension, there is enough room for a bigger wheel with same size rubber but just depends on wheel travel.

Wish there were more people already out there who's done it on a CLA to get feedback.... eyeing some 20 inch HRE's...just scared to pull the trigger and place that order. another concern is the weight of the aftermarket rims. I want steer clear (pun intended) of drastically affecting the acceleration and deceleration times. In other words, i still want to get my 0-60 times.

yea with 20" wheels, it would make our brakes looks really really small....
personally i think 19" is a perfect size for our cars.
