Looking at buying SLK 200K. Read a review that said stick to the 16" standard as the 18" give a very harsh ride. What are the experiences of anyone with the larger alloys with the lowered suspension.

Welcome to The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

First please update your location and vehicle (model and year,ie 2007,? SLK 350,?) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’.

We want to welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

I'm running on 18" AMG V's as summer setup. Used to have 16" as a winter setup, but always found it a relief when I could mount my summer setup again. Far better handling (and looks :wink:) than my winter setup. Difference in comfort was minimal and hardly noticable. So I changed my winter setup to 18" too. My recommandation, and that should be no surprise, go for 18". My suspension is standard though.
