I intend to put on my SL 320 18 " AMG wheels but I am somewhat afraid by a potential loss of performance and comfort due to the low profile tires.<br>
Would 17 " wheels be more appropriate.

18's are fine...

You have hydraulic suspension. You might not even feel the difference.<br>

Besides 18's would look a lot better.

19"

I have just bought 98' SL500 three weeks ago and my auntie bought 01' SL500 3 days ago. I have stock 16" and my aunt AMG 18". I drove my aunt's car and I was so surpriced that the ride was nothing different than my stock wheels. I went to RBtech in downtown LA to discuss about the custom wheels for my car. These guys are referred to be by the MB dealer where I bought my car from. They are bad bad bad mofos. They just cannot be more professionals. They say that 19" is the way to go for SLs. 320, 500, 600SLs share same dimensions as far as my memory goes. If you can go with 19's, do that. I confirmed upto 18" and it had smooth ride. I hope you make the right decision. Enjoy SL~~!
