I have just fitted a set of double 5 spoke C Class rims to my 03 SLK.
I need to know what size spacers i should fit?
Here are the figures:
SLK 7.5J 225/45/17 ET 37 to C Class 7.5J 225/45/17 ET 47
SLK 8.5J 245/40/17 ET 30 to C Class 8.5J 245/40/17 ET 58
So the rims size & tyres are the same, just the offset has changed.
The fronts are in by 10% according to calculators.
The rears are in by 20%
I have fitted 5mm spacers to the rears because of fouling, but doesn't seem enough, even though they do not foul anymore.
The fronts are no spacers, but the hub centre protrudes more, so centre cap only just fits.
Any suggestions people?
