Hey these are probably off your car... lol

They look great on my 129

In case you don't know, the wheels on my car are SL55 wheels

classy, I think they would look great on almost any Benz

Wheels sets like this are on eBay most of the time.

But you need wheels for M14 bolts with R14 ballseats

Most wheels out there won't fit..

It would help if you would say what style and sizes your looking for.

In case you like the OEM SL55 wheels, here is a link to a set on eBay

MERCEDES SL55 SL65 18" AMG OEM RIMS WHEELS 65282 65283 | eBay

good luck

Why not say a little about what you are trying to find? There are a lot of wheels out there.

Reminds me of one of my old Bosses, When asked what he wanted in the Presentation, he would reply;

"I Don't Know, But When I See Something I Like, I'll Let you Know".... (drove us all nuts )

Anyway, here is a picture lineup of many wheels that will fit a R230, maybe you'll "See Something You Like"

Mercedes SL Class R230 alloys | Alloy Wheels Direct Ltd

Of all these my fav's are the AMG V and two-piece AMG IV wheels..

You made no comment on my SL55 AMG V wheels, so I guess we can assume you don't like them...

Rather than posting the word "bump", why not add some helpful commentary like Sizes, Finish, Style?

Thanks for the advice. I had 20's on my sl500 so I thought I would get feed back on the ride quality of the 19's. 20 inch rode like a dump truck or should I stick to MB's 18" there has to be a reason the car came with them?
