Hello SL people ... can you help me with my wheels. i'm told all different stories about them. the most common one is that they were a 'factory' option for the SL and are 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5 rear although many also try to tell me that they are actually 10s.
can anyone help

For rear wheels, most of them were either 9" or 9.5" except the 2-piece AMG wheels that came with SL600 from 2001-2002. Those are 10" wide (the one you have on your picture).

I have those exact same wheels on my SL. If you ask me, I'd say get them. I think they're a perfect compliment. They realy look agressive because the rear tire's lip is about 3" as opposed to the regular SL staggered fitment whose rear wheel only has only 2" on the lip.

Only problem is that they're extinct now and replacements would be hard to get.
