I do not think the offset is correct for the SLK. I have both an SLK & SL and do not believe I can inter-change the rims.

Check the tirerack web site to confirm.

is there any way i could make it fit...??\
because there are good offer for set of rim and i can not pass'em out..:crybaby2:
Fit 235-40-18 tire. These are 3-part wheels. The offset is 0.75" (distance from mounting surface to centerline). The overall width is 9.5"; the inner width (at tire bead) is 8.5". I took these off of a '97 SL500 R129 roadster.

thanks

I would not try it! You could (not recommended tho) force the use slk wheels on sl with some spacers but not vice versa. In the long run, it would damage your axels more.

Actually, this would work fine in thinking about it. The stock SL is 31/35 and the SLK is 37/30. No reason you can't put the rears to the SLK in front and vice-versa.

Then, it'd be 30/37 and run just fine (assuming the widths are all the same).
