Hi,
I am looking for a set of 18" wheels to throw on the SLK32. I would appreciate it if you knowledgeable people cold advise me on what wheels fit properly with the car, clear brakes, etc etc. I like Brabus V's and VI's as well as Renntech and am open to suggestions! Please help I have no idea how wheel/tire fitments work.
TIA

Brabus are too heavy and way over priced. The RENNtech are overpriced (in my book) but at least the monolites are no extremely heavy.

The goal is to decrease unsprung weight, not increase it.

Thanks for the comments guys.. Papa, I am interested in the v's unless I can find a reasonably priced set of monolites.. Papa did you need to use spacers? Would i need to on the amg? Will i have any issues with brabus V's 8.5 front 9.5 rear? Tia guys!!

Nope no spacers needed, and yes me and BrabusSlk run them 8.5/9.5 no probs.

Mine car came with iv, But bought the v, was a toss up between the v and the vi, the v won :D

I would stay away from toyo's they sit narrow ( stretched ) on the rim, and offer 0% protection... Im on my 2nd front / 5th rear
