Will these rims fit ?

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
So I'm again searching the net for a nice set of 18" wheels

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.
Paul

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
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.

Paul
