Help on new wheels

Hi All

I know this is a bone of contention but I have a opputunity of purchasing a set of whhels for my 2008 SLK 280.I am told they were from a SLK320 but I am a little concerned and confused by offsets and wheel sizes that may or may not fit.
The wheels are 18 in rims and the sizes are as follows:Front 8.5J ET30. Rears 9J ET33.

Any help would be much appreciated,wheel model if it helps is A2304012002 Front and A2304012102 for rears.

Cheers Keith

Looks like they might fit based on the offsets although they are a full inch and a half-inch wider than stock for front and rear respectively. They are not SLK wheels originally. They are for the E class (W211):

If they came off an SLK I guess it might be OK. No guarantees.

As long as you stay in check with the tire size that go with these rims, they will be OK. Have you checked the 5 hole and 66mm diameter needs from your SLK?
