For sale - OEM AMG 171 5 spoke alloy wheels, tires and TPM sensors, previously used on an USA 2009 SLK 350.

Four 17” AMG 171 wheels mounted with Continental ExtremeContact DWS (Ultra High Performance All-Season) tires and Tire Pressure Monitoring sensors.
Fronts: 225/45 ZR 17.
Rears: 245/40 ZR 17.

The wheels have less than 20,000 miles on them and are in very good condition. No curb rash at all.
One front wheel has three light scratches on it.
The tires were purchased last December and have only 1,500 miles on them.

$950 or best offer for the complete set .
This must be a local cash sale as I will not ship them, I live in Arlington Virginia.

FACT - I've seen said wheels on said car, and they do look stunning. Of course, -1-'s garage floor is cleaner than most kitchen's, as are his various 4 wheel toys! :)

FACT - those wheels run around $2500 new without tires or TPMS, so someone is going to get a good deal!

Do you know whether these will fit a R171 SLK55? Thank you.

17's won't clear the brake calipers on a MY05-07 '55. I don't know if they would clear the smaller 4-pot calipers on the MY08+ non-030 package cars. Since MB never sold the '55 with 17's, you'd probably be breaking new ground!

can this fit a slk that does not come with a tire pressure monitoring system? also, is "ultra high performance all-season" tires sufficient for virginia snow or is it better to get snow tires?
Yes, they will fit a SLK without TPMS, the car just ignores the sensors. The sensors have no impact on wheel size or fitment. In fact I first used the wheels on my 06 SLK 280 which did not have TPMS on it.
I find "ultra high performance all-season" tires sufficient for Virginia snow as long as it is not too deep. But I have a lot of experience driving in the snow. True snow tires would be better as long as you don't use them during warmer weather as they will wear out much faster.
