My car's 2nd hand and I think the previous owner changed the suspension to some point as it's stiffer than other Slks I've tried , but not especially lowered and no bottoming out ...
I have aftermarket wheels with width 8J and ET37 , if I remember rightly , and I put the 5mm spacers on the front because the centre cap hit the hub cover , the 10mm rears I put on to line up the rears with the fronts . I could probably put a bit more on both , but I wouldn't want to over stress/stretch the original distances for fear of causing damage .
With the amount you've lowered your car , I wouldn't over do it , for fear of rubbing on the wing/fender over bumps/holes ...
Might I suggest you get a pair ( rather than spending out on all four ) of 10mm ones and try and see what they look like and do front and back , then you can get something smaller for the front if and use these on the rear , if 10mm is too much , or something bigger for the rear if it's ok , if you understand what I mean ?
