SL AMG Wheels vs. SLK 55 Wheels

Does anyone know if OEM/Stock SL AMG wheels will fit SLK 55's?
I would like to move my rear wider wheels to my front,
And get rear SL wider wheels for my rear.
If I am out of my mind let me know.
Are the 16 spoke SL wheels identical as the SLK wheels,
Besides the wider width, Are they the mirror image?
If someone knows the correct offset front and rear,
Please advise.

have a look on this website.

http://www.alloywheelsdirect.net/mer...poke_wheel_277

it should give you the info you need and be able to put pictures side by side.

Ignore the fact that it thinks the SL versions are 14 spoke. I counted them and they aren't!

according to that site it's SL 30/33 and SLK 37/30.

That isn't the car's required offset but the supplied offset of the specific AMG wheels.

Quite right Adam - this is AMG on both - I suspect that the SL wheels will work fine and clear the brakes, just not seen it in person...
