I have a slk 55 with original alloys but the lacquer has started to come (as per usual ) what Id like to know is am I better having them refurbish as original diamond cut and lacquered or go for the powder coated ones, maybe a different colour or go for new ones ???
which would be best for resale value ??
Have now got the new rims from Mandrus. It´s Millenium style, 19" with 8,5" front and 9,5" back. Very happy with the stance of the rears. Actually they will not pass MOT, as they stick out from the fender. This is due to the fact that the fitters had to put a 10 mm spacer on to get clearance from the brake calipers. I will go back and get 5 mm spacers to get the car street leagal.
First, the front wheels where ordered with ET 32 (stock is 30). But as they dont´t produce that ET any more they delivered ET43 with spacers of 10 mm. Fine so.Which part of the wheel fouled? Could you have chosen a different offset/ET?
Now it makes sense!First, the front wheels where ordered with ET 32 (stock is 30). But as they dont´t produce that ET any more they delivered ET43 with spacers of 10 mm. Fine so.
Rear it was ET 31 = same as stock, but the rim was "just" clear from the caliper (less than 1 mm). So a spacer was needed - 10 mm was avaliable. Now the tire is "just" outside the fender.
Mandrus need to sort things out - I specifically ordered the rims according to my car at their website. The rears should fit - but didn´t.
