Here's a list of wheel sizes and the correct ET for all the Mercedes range :

And here is an offset calculator to see what spacers you might need :

You won't like same width/offset wheels on the SLK. The rears are wider and offset differently for a reason.

Also, I think the fronts will rub on the upper suspension.
