They look sweet ! Make sure you get some pics of the car as well. We LOVE looking at SLK's.

As to the tire sizes, I believe that you have a 2-3% tolerance on the rotational speed before you start messing with the speedometer and such. Not totally sure, though. Plenty of folks on here with 19's and 20's, though, so is should be easy to find out what they used.

Best Wishes

Guys just got them done specs are 19 with 235 in the front and 255 in the back. To be honest 255 just fits in the back as anymore will make the back wider than the guards. Pretty sure et28 and 32

Just a couple more to get an idea of how they look... They are actually so much better in person also the ride height and the comfort of day to day driving with the sport suspension is fantastic
