Hi,
I can buy a used set of AMG (look?) rims but I'm not sure these will fit. They came off an w211 (E class) model.
I have a sportsuspention.

The data:
Front 8,5J, 245
rear 9,5J, 275
ET32
19"

If they don't fit can I resolve this by using spacers ?
Is there somebody on this forum with these rims fitted under his/her SLK (pics) ?

Thanks.

Paul

Front,I doubt it. I tried 8,5J 235 ET35 and they rubbed against the suspension.
I think you will need spacers.
If they come from a W211 they have a seating for M14 bolts and your R171 has M12.
You will need special bolts with a head having a 14 mm radius and M12 thread.

The seller didn't response to my request for more info and has removed his/her ad :frown:
So I'm again searching the net for a nice set of 18" wheels :smile:

I think I like the classic multi spoke look most on the R171.

Which other Mercedes (models) wheels are compatible with the R171 (interchangeable) ?

Thanks.

Okay. Today I found another set of nice wheels. Came off an C55 type.
They are original AMG's 19" (see picture).

Data:
Front: 19x8.5" ET30 - A2114001202
Rear: 19x9.5" ET31 - A2114001402

Tires:
Front: 235/35-19 - 3mm
Rear: 255/30-19 - 5,5mm

Anyone experice with these wheels. Will these fit my 2007 R171 with sport suspension.

Thanks a lot!

Paul

Guess what. The ad came online again :smile:
Talked to the guy over the phone and my daughter is currently underway getting them (500km trip pff). I'll need 12mm bolts with a 14mm head though.

I hope the state they're in is not dissapointing. For $ 550,- (with almost brandnew tires) it's a steal (I think).
I'll post some pictures in spring when they're mounted under the car.

Thanks.
