Anyone know if the following will fit my 98 SL500?

From a 2004 SL500: fronts are 255/40/18, Rears are
285/35/18 with Michelin Pilot Sports.

Thanks

I'm guessing here, but probably a 34 or 35 offset.

If so, they would fit my 93 but you would need spacers to make them look decent. Again, I'm only going by what I'm currently doing to my '93

offset and rim size is stamped on inside of the wheel, offset is usually by the letter ET. Its up to you to make sure....

I bought my wheels of a seller on ebay that ships 500 set of rims a day. They said the rims would NOT work on my 93...below is a pic of them not working!!

Seller apparently has no idea. Here's the link:

eBay Motors: MERCEDES BENZ SL500 OEM WHEELS AND TIRES (item 290310918499 end time Apr-24-09 11:15:18 PDT)

I'm concerned about the rear mostly.
Hmm. Looks like the MB Launch wheels from the R230.

245/40R18 opt. , 18x8.5 , ET35 (R230 MB Launch Wheel)
275/35R18 opt. , 18x9.5 , ET40 (R230 MB Launch Wheel)

If the wheels are the above sizes, then the wheels will definatley fit.

Here is a good reference:
