One of the other members in the UK Midlands ( @Col ) has 19" aftermarket wheels on his SLK now. Checkout Col's post in this link for some potentially useful info when selecting wheels, and also his current signature pic as they're the 19" wheels he now has:

Uz, I've never had a Porsche, but you should have seen how disappointed my sister was last year when I told her how much more quickly my SLK can accelerate than her (new to her) 2011 Boxster (just after she'd taken me out for a ride in it)!

155 at the moment... but that can easily be changed!

Anyway, I guess we've gone a little now... suggest we leave the thread to get back on track... always good to see you back on the forum though

Everybody to their own taste but personally no, they look too Golf GTI for the SLK.

Hi Henry, those wheels would look good on most cars. Not seen them on an SLK but I have seen BBS CH wheels on one and also Dotz Exile which are a similar style. As you'll see from my signature I'm on 19" Ispiri ISR6 rims. They offer some great looking wheels in staggered fitments for a variety of German cars, highly recommended!

The fins are originals (came with the car luckily) !

The wheels are from eBay, this model, although I think the seller I bought from was Mad-on-motors..
