I much much prefer the look of the second ones, the double spoke.

The first ones don't do anything for me actually, wouldn't even consider them. But in the end, you have to go with the ones that make you happy.

The other thing that you could consider is the Mercedes Adharaz wheels that are marketed for the CLK and the C class. These are 17" 5 spoke wheels (as fitted to the C class sport) and they fit the SLK perfectly. They're much cheaper than the AMGs and IMO they look better than both the wheels you've posted. I've put them on mine.

On a C class:

They look better on an SLK. They're the same as the standard wheels on the SLK320, except they're 17" and wider.

Double spokes are too generic - you can see them on almost every car out there.

I like those wheels, but I prefer Amg's.

Here (in Italy) many Slk have 17" Amg like your car; Double spokes (the original of Slk 32 Amg) I've never seen here. In Italy there are few 32 Amg and I've never seen one!
The 32 Amg's wheels are extremely rare here; maybe there are other similar wheels, but the originals are the originals[:)]

And 5 spoke wheels are rare right?[:D]

I don't know why people like black wheel. I might on a black car but other than that........

I really like the double spoke AMG wheels...especially when black on yellow. Sorry Kirill and cmorosco, but I'm not a big fan of your guys' wheels...they don't have enough dimension...like they seem too flat...I don't know. But I would have to say go for the black or gunmetal rims. Here's a pic of my rims..I like them but I wouldn't buy them as aftermarket. Kinda like Kirill and cmorsco's rims - they are nice, but if upgrading, I would go for something sweeter.

Those are the 16" versions of the Adharaz wheel. The 17" versions look really good on the SLK IMO and the picture of the C class doesn't do them justice. The trouble with the AMGs - partcularly the twin spoke wheels - is that they don't look very big. Even in 18" form they don't look very big, the reason being that the eye seems to take the size of the wheel from the spoke size, and thise with spokes that finish well inside the rim (like split rims) look at least an inch smaller than they really are. The Adharaz wheels look bigger than they are because the spoke goes right to the edge of the rim.

Have you thought of other brands like Brabus, Carlsson or Lorinser? Does it have to be AMG. To be honest i don't want AMG rims cause too many people have them.

These are all great Aftermarket tuners for SLK's. You can chose from any of these.


Brabus





Carlsson



Lorinser



Other AMG

It's the same for me Amg or Brabus or others; I'd like to find a good wheel on eBay (new and original Amg or Brabus cost too much), so I'm searching and looking for many brands.

I agree, those Brabus wheels are sick. That's a good thing. [;)] Especially the ones in the third picture on the black SLK32. I've always liked those wheels. Aren't those all 18s though?
