Wheel upgrade 02 170 SLK32

Hey SLK folks. Sombody help me out here. What 18 inch BENZ wheels will fit an SLK 32. What are my choices? The stock 17's just dont do it for me. For instance what must the offset be? Or can i fit a set of 18's like my C55 has?

Thank,

Peter Bush

SLK 32 wheels question

Anybody have some feedback on these wheel sellers? So many of them. Alloywheels.com, OEMwheels.com. They all sell the same "Mercedes style" rims.

Any good?

Looking to upgrade to 18's on my 32. And honestly. Im not interested in a seller with prices listed in thousands of Pound Sterling.

Thanks

I got mine from a seller on eBay , after market ones , and have had no problems with the quality , they cost me less than 350 (17") , so you don't neccesarily need OEM to get something that does the job !
Possibly the bigger the wheel , smaller the profile , there may be more chance of damage on cheaper wheels ??
