Yes,
*harrumph* welcome rlbawk.

But now I know V8SLK's wheels: OZ rims with Michelin tyres.

Hi, welcome, beautiful SLK 55. Hood bonnet fins, are you referring to the aero wings on the hood? Unless someone removed them, you should already have them. The SmartTop is a great addition and well worth the money. Chrome door pins, many get them, no big deal for me. Enjoy your new SLK.

The ones on the hood are satin and my aerowings are chrome as well as the wheels so I thought chrome on the hood would look more finished and match the rest of the car well.

Now that makes sense. I removed my factory AMG multi spoke wheels shortly after purchasing my SLK 55. I've seen pics of the factory AMG wheels in chrome and they look much nicer and elegant.

I only cleaned them once prior to replacement. The wheels look OK. I wanted something different. The cleaning time was a factor in my switch.

Mohammed,
you are right, 20'' is too much!
But I like the design of those rims.
And both rims, V8SLK's and lontong's, are drop-centre rims or how are they called?

@lontong: What's the make? I don't know "b4".

Your car looks great and I like the wheels. If they work without rubbing or issues, then good. If not, they're too big. Looks like super low profile tires. If you're happy, I'm happy.
