I recognize the logo being HRE as I had some on a blue BMW in Germany. They look really good on that SLK would not mind finding out the specifics on them myself.

Beautiful wheels, but the big question is. What is the offset?

Do as you will but honestly I think you have the AMG logo thing down might be a bit overkill on the center caps. I think the HRE logo works great with badge and sticker you have on the panel. I rarely see HRE rims state side even if they are based in San Diego which I think is a good thing. I will get off the now

Good point.....HRE caps will stay. I'll mount the AMG caps I just ordered to the wall.

These tires stick!

Seems I can only post one photo at a time...probably the file size. I have one more photo, see the next post.
