SO i'm looking at some c-class rims for my slk . the offset is 58.

do i need spacers?
:confused:You'll need a big azz spacer. Won't work, the offset for the wheels is way off. Check something aftermarket that will fit or choose another style of wheel with the proper offset.

Actually, by needing very thick spacers, it is possible.
Calculate your spacers and have them custom made to fit on the hub spigot and provide a spigot for the wheel and get proper length bolts.

If they were W203 C-class wheels they'd be the same offset as R171 wheels, but that's about it. Otherwise, Mercedes wheels really don't fit across models.

Since there's usually so little understanding of this, bears repeating that "spacer" means always different lug bolts.

:)I still prefer getting wheels that fit, versus making them fit. Chances are, the C Class wheels aren't cheap., Why the obsession with the C class wheels? Avoid spacers when possible.

I’m 100% with you!:tu:
I was just talking about possibilities, not recommendations!:td:
