i have a 2001 slk 230 i would like some black rim/wheels for i. but i am clueless about off sets and other things i just want 4 black wheels. is it bad to do non staggered wheels? basiclly just explain to me like i am a 4 year old what i need to look for. a really slow 4 year old lol. i want to stay as close to factory as possible if i can but as long as its not bad for the car i can change some.

slks are staggered

only if you have winter tires on will all your rims be the same size

Changing the stagger will change the dynamics but it is possible.
If all you want is black wheels why not have them refinished?

Here are (hopefully) 3 easy ways to go about getting your wheel changed to black as you want:

1- Drive your current car to a wheel shop, ask if they can powder-coat to black for you. Get a price/wheel. If it is good for you, go for it and have it powder-coated in black. And you are done.

or

2- Go to Autozone, O'Reillys or other auto parts store (local or online) and purchase a can or two of Plasti-Dip in BLACK. Follow the instructions on the cans on how to plasti-dip your wheels to Black.

or

3- Look on EBay or other online wheel shops (quite a few.. just Google 20XX SLK350 wheels or something like that) for black-colored rims of exact same specs as your current. Make sure to match the offsets to your factory one (look up your car wheel offset on the link here <---- clicky clicky). Find any you like, go for it.



Hope the above options helps you.

Good luck.
