Choosing the Right Wheels

Hi

Rather than swapping tyres over I'm looking at getting some additional wheels and having a summer and winter set.

I've got myself confused over offsets and other markings. In a nutshell, should the following fit a 2007 SLK350? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2718102448...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I can't see why not but it's an expensive mistake to make if I'm wrong

My existing wheels have got the same bolt holes (photo) on so fingers crossed...

cheers

Gents - thank you very much for the help. I'm off to spend my Christmas money

I'll post again when the wheels are on.

And the wheels went on with no problems. Got a winter set and a summer set now so no need to pay 80 storage a year and 80 x 2 to swap them over. Popped some new centre caps on too.
