Favorite alloys on an SLK

So as per the title I wanted to know what are your favorite wheels on the R171? We're looking at sticking a set of 17 or 18's on ours so all recommendations are readily accepted - I do really like concave wheels but we dont like chrome or clearly aftermarket stuff. Please post away....

I would tie the red interior to the wheels and brake calipers. Although these aren't concave I think the touch of red gives it an edgy and aggressive look.

Good luck!

For me, this is the one that will COMPLETE my black beast. So far I found 3 sets of 19" that belongs to C63. Too big for my liking.
