Hi,
I am new to this forum. I have a 2006 SLK350 - Dark Metallic Blue with light beige interior. Nice. It has 17" 10-spoke rims front and rear. I've begun looking at Brabus and other vendors to dress this up a bit.
QUESTIONS:
1. What are the max front and rear rim - sizes (diameter and width) this car will take?
2. For the max rim diameter what tire profile must be used?
3. How much can the car be lowered for a given rim diameter? (For example, if I get 19 inch rims and a 1 inch lowering kit, will the body eat the tires?)
4. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best rims having black or dark colored spokes and center?

Welcome to the forum from London via Houston.

I'm sure some of the experts will chime in, I'm running stock 18's on the '55 and stock 17's on the '350 with sports suspension.

Welcome....:)

You'll get some proper instructions from JBanks, in the meantime you might like to update your profile so people know where you're from and what your drive is. And the search engine is your friend..... Tons of knowledge on here.
