Looking to replace the wheels on my new to me slk200. (2008) at present it comes with 17 inch wheels and 225 on the front and 245 on the back. Does this mean I have staggered wheels, as replacement sets seem to be 7.5 width. One site is showing in the tyre option I can put either 225 or 245 on the same wheel , is that correct. I like the look of the Monaco gp1 wheel . Thanks Dave.

Very unusual not to have staggered.

MB did say that you could do same all round for winter.

However, the handling etc is set up for the staggered version.

This wheels question is a frequent one.
A search may tell you what route/choices others made.

Your current wheels are probably 7" front and 8" rear and yes you have staggered. 7.5" front and 8.5" rear would be good if they offer a wider rear.
