They would look great, but i would be slightly worried about quality. the dish might pit and corrode easier than say a branded make.
Try ace wheels do a very similar rim which are multifit and should fit yuor car no problem. also Boss wheels similar style.
a real slr look, the turbo's turbine, very cool and the black would look great against your copper!

WOW! I found them in a Shop today. Over $1200 for a set! Ebay has them for $600 a set. The guy in the shop said he could not compete with that price. Brand name of rim is EGDE.

I'm seriously considering them...

Out of curiosity, do you get left side and right side wheels so the turbine design would draw air toward the brake disks. Then the next question, would cooling the brake disk on one side only warp the disk after heavy use.
I very much doubt it.

I'm a easy driver.;)

I doubt daily driving would be an issue for me.

I do not "track" :flag: it like others here so brakes heating up should not be an issue for me.

I just like the looks of them.:hb:

SLKman, can you photoshop the wheels onto a picture of your car? It may help you decide if you really want them. $600 is a lot of money to spend to find out if they really look good on the car.

Just a suggestion.

Wished I had that knowlegde. I would love to be able to do that.

My thought is since I have a blacked out grill and chrome lettering on the car...black rims with a little chrome may fit the car.

I will keep my other tires and rims in case I ever sell the car. The next owner may want the original rims.

I do like the photoshop idea!!!!:Beer:

Please dont get them they are Fake Lorinser LM6 wheels/ look alike and Black wheels spoil the Elegant look of your Designo Cooper SLK. If you are badly in need with wheels the Brabus Monoblock V 18" look fantastic on the R170.

I agree, they are reps like I said previously, and The black are either gunna look crazy on it, or horrific. These arent the design I think to make it look crazy.

Get the a different design in black tho with a chrome lip * im slightly biased to black and chrome lip rims!* hahah
