Can anyone that's good with photoshop, chop the attached wheels for me with a medium drop ( no fender gap )?

Much appreciated.

Picked up a set of HRE 547's that came off a 2003 SL 500 (R203). Anybody know if these will for a 2009 W211? Not sure about the offsets as the inner barrels were swapped out..

Fronts are 20x8.5 (245/30/20)
Rears are 20x11 (305/25/20)

I know for sure the rears aren't going to fit..but my question is, does anyone think they will fit after some work?

Thanks guys.
Unfortunately they wont fit. My brother has an W211 E55 and he was already faced with the same dilemma. It sucks unless you want to do some fender work. Those wheels will however fit under a CLS, thats the worst part.

Good luck Nick, I know finding the right wheels with the right look will be difficult - especially since you like a nice lip. I like the way your car looks. I have to admit, I'll be sticking with BMW for several years to come though
Seriously, I know you don't do dumb or crappy mods, so good luck.

lol. really? i was thinking about rolling on the HRE's with the lip sticking out 1+ inch from the fender. HA. nah, but I'm going to relip the wheels and see what I can do with them. coilovers should be coming soon and we'll go from there. if it's not what I'm looking for, then I'll just flip them and go for a different set.

thanks for the input/help guys
