Hi all, been a while since my last post. just been braking the car in a bit. Got some nice rims too, just a shame the weather in Scotland isnt all that good for photos. but here is one pic i took. Handling is much better with these 8.5 front and back. Would have prefered wider at the back though.

Very nice! I was actually offered these wheels a while back but decided to pass as I did not know how they would look like! Obviously, they look NICE [:0] How much did you pay for yours? They were offered to me for around 1,000 US second hand...

Can you get away with wider tires on the back wheels? What is the make and width of your tires? Are these original MB wheels or replicas? The ones being offered to me where taken off a totalled Benz. Would the bolt pattern match those of the SLK?

Thanks a bunch for your help.

Did you get them off another Benz? Could you have gone with 245 or 255 for the back wheels? Great choice! How much did they end up costing you?
