I'll let the experts reply

but since the 350 comes with 17" wheels standard, thats why I didn't think of anything smaller than 17" will fit a 350
bolt pattern would be different to start

Mmmhhh not listed for slk 350 only for slk 200 and slk 280. Reason for asking is that I have them for my slk 200 and also want to use the 16 inch for the slk 350 I am searching for so in winter time can fit them.

PCD is the same but it may well be a case of the 350 having bigger discs and/or calipers.
Similar to the R170 200/320, wheels interchangeable one way but not the other.

As Jeff says, wait for the R171 experts to turn up for a definitive answer.

Brake rotors and calipers are the same between the 350 and 280 so if there is some indication that the 280 and 200 wheels are interchangable then the 200 may well fit the 350 also. There is only one way to know for sure - try it.

The US 350 has larger rotors and different calibers which gives it 17 inch wheels. The 280 had different rotors and calibers and 16 inch wheels. The 200 was not offered in US.

And just to add more confusion

Hit and scroll down to R171:
https://www.dcperformance.co.uk/upra...cedes/slk.html


200 = 288mm

Standard = 300mm

Seems the sports pack equipped 171's use a 330mm disc whilst the 350's from 2008 onwards use a 345mm disc .. interesting
