i believe the bolt pattern to be the same on my 1994 e320 to be the same as an slk320. what i am concerned about is the lug bolt size. is it the same as my e320? will they work on mine?

Yes with a caution

My 92 300CE came with a set of staggered Mono I's with SLK PN's, they fit fine.

But you are better served to educate yourself on wheel fitment rather than speak in generalities.

Start by using the wheels actual sizes rather than refer to what model they may or may not have come from. Not everyone will know what the sizes of an SLK wheel is, and there could be a few that are different.

124's will generally accept wheels between 15 and 18 diameter, 6.5 to 7.5 wide (with exceptions), and ET's that range from the mid 30's to the mid 40's

As already posted, do your homework, I just did part of it for you, go find out what sizes the SLK wheels are...

A common SLK Mono I set is sized as follows

7.5 x 17 ET37 - front
8.5 x 17 ET30 - rear

Like I said they fit my CE fine, looked good, but did occasionally rub in the rear, (minor), fronts were perfect. Actually a set of 4 fronts will never rub.

They should fit

I've used the same set of wheels: AMG IIs 17x7.5 on 2 different 124s and my SLK32. The bolts are the same size.

Lug Bolt size

These are 12M bolt wheels that take Bolt Size M12 x 1.5 x 39mm R12 , if they were ordered for an SLK.

This should be the correct bolt for these wheels mounted on any Mercedes.

If you were to buy the original staggered set from Alloy Wheels direct with lugbolts, here is what your invoice would look like, it shows the sizes.

Mercedes Benz Alloy Wheel 7x16 ET37 Adharaz A1704010702

Mercedes Benz Alloy Wheel 8x16 ET30 Adharaz A1704010802

RAD Bolt M12x1.5x39mm R12

Measure the shank size on your current bolts, if they are 39mm you should be fine.

Also you can simply use a test bolt to check the amount of thread sticking through the back of the wheel, that should be in the range of 17 to 20mm to be safe.

Good Luck

Yep, those staggered SLK rims will easily fit 124s. I briefly had them installed on my 300TD before finally mounting them on my Vanagon. Just be sure you don't buy four of those 8" rear rims by accident

here they are mounted. i did a 320 mile round trip to get them. the po had the mercedes dealer paint them the same color as his slk so they appear to be a spot on match to my black 320.. really nice job. black with a silver lip. for 100.00 i think i damn near stole them!

Wow, you should be hearing sirens any minute now, 'cause that's highway robbery. I've been wondering what they would look like painted black. I like it.

Do you realize you responded to a post dated 10-1-2012?

Also his last post on BW forums was made on 10-23-2012, which was post 23 of 23 life time posts, so I doubt he is even an active member right now.

Rather than resurrect very old threads, (which can be annoying for those looking for current information), why not start a new thread? There are plenty of active posters with information you need.

Just a thought...! :rolleyes:
