I'll probably be outfitting my GLC 43 with a set of snow tires/wheels. I do the same with my GLA45, so that I can keep the pretty 20's and summer tires on most the year but I really love changing out to my little 18" wheels with ice-grabbing Michelin Ice-X's. There were debates on the GLA forums whether 18" wheels would fit over the big AMG calipers, but the wheels I bought work very well.

So... anyone try 18" wheels on the GLC? I wonder if the brake setup on the GLA is the exact same as the GLC(??)

Here are a couple pics of the 18's on my GLA45.

Try your 18" wheel on the GLC to see if it clears the caliper
Yep, that will certainly be part of it... I'll report back... just not sure if I even can because offsets may be entirely different. I haven't even purchased the GLC 43 yet, but 18's will be part of my plan. There is a decent amount of "smallest wheel possible" on the GLA forums. I suspect that someone here has looked into it on the GLC.

I may also look up part numbers on the GLA45 caliper and the GLC43 caliper to see if they are identical. EDIT: Adding GLA45 18" pics. EDIT2: Sorry the pics are so big.. not sure why.

Speaking of clearing the calipers, I took some pics last night on the GLA45. It's very close!
