My wheels are all over the forum, and I'm sure you've seen it. I originally wanted the AMG looking wheels, like this



Then I realized that a lot of people will get this style, nothing wrong with it, that's why a lot of people have it, it still looks very nice, but I wanted something different. I went with a few other styles that I like but they (the wheel companies) didn't make anything for the SLK, my choices were limited. So I decided to get what I really want with custom wheels. I knew from pass experience that cast wheels are both heavy and weak, I wanted forged wheels. And I wanted that expensive looking forged wheels, so I decided on 3-piece custom forged.

I was browsing the CLK forums on mbworld, and notice a few members with DCR's, they were a new company then. Reason for browsing the CLK forums was b/c I originally wanted a CLK cabrio, glad I got the SLK, hardtop and much more sportier looking. Anyway, decided on the hockenheims, and I'm still amazed at how nice they look. They are strong, light, and just looks beautiful. I had an older gentlemen the other day that just stared at it, didn't even blink, he finally moved after the car behind him "beep" him. No regrets.
Those are TSW Bremma twin spoke alloy rims silver finish with machine polished lip. I have them on my CLK430.
