OEM Rims

Does anyone know where I can buy the OEM rims? I had a FR rim crack in half, so I am in the market right now.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your location and vehicle (model and year,ie 2007 SLK 350) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’.

We want to welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome from NE England. Congratulations on your SLK.

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.

You could try AlloyWheelsDirect. Even including shipping to the States, they can work out cheaper than main dealer prices.

Greetings from Tennessee !

The first question would be: What part of the world do you live in? We are truly an international forum with members from every continent.

That said, the next question is whether you want new stock or are you comfortable with used parts. I tend to be cheap so if I were looking for a single rim I would go to eBay or the breakers. One of my favorite sites is Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Best Wishes & Welcome to the Forum.

+1 on alloywheelsdirect. They are awesome. I had a set of OEMs shipped from the UK to the USA by them, and it was still 40% less than the dealer price.

These seem to be well priced for 2005 350 Launch Edition.

Or you could try these from a German dealer
Mercedes SLK-Class R171 | light-alloy wheels 5-double-spoke-design

Ships all over Europe for just 15 euro's.
Dealer is not always more expensive. these are some Ł 200 cheaper than alloywheels direct i.e.
As said before, it depends where you're located.
