W204 wheels on R171

Hi All,

Does anyone know if the 17's off of a W204 C-class will fit our R171 please?



I checked this guide but its not very helpful Mercedes-Benz Fitting Chart and Wheel Fitment Guide | Alloy Wheels Direct

TIA

Check here http://www.mercedes-benz.de/content/..._rim.0001.html

for the rimsizes with ET values MB allows for the different models.
Also W204 uses M14 bolts, our R171 M12. So will need special bolts M12 with M14 head to fit them in a proper and secure way.

The picture what you put in is maybe the AMG IV, the datas of this wheel is:
Front alloy wheels: 17x7.5" ET47
Wheel part number: AMG B66031400
Additional alloy part number: A20440145027X25

Rear alloy wheels: 17x8.5" ET58
Wheel part number: AMG B66031401
Additional alloy part number: A20440146027X25

If we check an AMG wheel for an SLK (for example mine is) in this size, the AMG IV datas are:
Front alloy wheels: 17x7.5" ET37
Wheel part number: AMG B66031026
Additional alloy part number: A1704012002

Rear alloy wheels: 17x8.5" ET34
Wheel part number: AMG B66031027
Additional alloy part number: A1704012102

As you can see, you HAVE to use spacers for the wheels because of the ET number or else:
on the one side the wheel can touch the car's fender inner side or on the other side can touch the shock-absorber.
