I know this is probably for the younger crowd, but what do you guys think of these wheels:

Konig HotSwap:

The All New Konig HotSwap - Discount Tire Direct

They have interchangeable spoke inserts so you can make the spokes body colored/black/carbon-fiber/chrome, etc. I think it'd look hot on the SLK, but I'm thinking most of you are going to say it's tacky. Imagine a Mars Red SLK with a Black finish wheel, with red inserts. That's hot.

i actually think they look really nice, but i wouldn't bother with inserts, that just means extra weight could be shaved. Just paint them! The new thing i'm onto is having the hub/dish of the wheel painted to match the car, and the spokes either black or graphite. Of course, if you've got deep dish, i would say to have bright chrome hub and black wheel centers.

I like them, go for it, I like the style, five spoke with lips and rivets. Don't care to much to change the inserts, I stick with black or graphite for your white SLK, I think it might be a bit much with white inserts to match the car unless it's a lambo, lambo's has be to outrageous to look good. This is still a benz.

I am with Ynot, White car and black wheels look very sportive.

konig wheels

the wheels are ok, but the inserts can go. nothing beats a classic 5 spoke "star" design. konig makes good wheels
