SLK wheel chart

Thanks. This might be a dumb question but the chart you sent only has front in 30 offset. Can I put these on with an offset of 32? The back on the chart match up just fine as is

All R171 rims and tire widths that were OEM supported on the different models can be interchanged with no problem. So AMG 18" OEM can fit a 200 etc.

I can't see a 2mm difference being a problem ...

I don't think it will be a problem either but if you want to be absolutely sure stick to the official MB recommendations. See attached pdf.
BTW, in case your German is a little bit rusty, VA means Vorder Achse or Front Axle and HA means Hinter Achse or Rear Axle.
As you can see they only support up to 7,5 J front. Maybe someone else has some experience with a wider rim than 7,5 J up front?
