I am with the consensus and would prefer option 1, but a little concerned about the notch, I suppose its for the AMG badge.

I'd go with option # 2, but you really should go with the choice you like best. You're going to be living with them. :smile:

If you don't have an AMG, don't be a poser :D

No #3 for me. Not sure on a R170 though. The R170 is a bit too curved maybe to carry off the angular wheels.

I voted #1 , but you should choose the ones you like. Try some out with picture pasting if you can. You will be looking at them, cleaning them etc. So choose carefully!

I am not really sure any of these suit the R170, but I have never considered changing wheels (I have an R170). I certainly agree with Jeff in that if your car is not an AMG don't use items styled for AMG.

I can understand your wish for new wheels, but have you considered getting a set of refurbished wheels that are stock for the R170? Maybe there were a couple of options available throughout the years they were built.

Anyway! Good luck and good fortune to you! And as always.....

Happy Driving!

thanks everybody!! I like them all, but i haven't decided yet because they're 18' wheels and the roads in Costa Rica are terrible. Do you guys think i will be getting flat tires very often if i decide to use this size? It's almost time to change my tires so i'm gonna have to make a decision this week!

I bought a set of used rims with winter tires on them for my 1998 SLK 230. They were 16 inch AMG rims and the winter tires that had only been used for 1 season. I bought 4 AMG rims for the price of 1. The rims had no road rash and were perfect. I don't have a picture handy as now I have my summer tires on with my car's original rims.

My point is, see if you can get a deal on used rims by looking through the classified ads (I found mine via Kijiji). I don't have an AMG SLK but at the price, in that condition, I couldn't refuse. Hope you find a deal like I did. Use the money saved on getting something else done. I repainted the interior and got the exterior waxed and paint corrected with the savings.
