    Hi All,

    It's my first post on the forum - so hope I'm getting this right!

    I have a 2008 CLK 220 CDI Sport Auto (Obsidian Black) - fitted with the standard 18" 5 spoke alloys. They're a handsome set of wheels, but I have the chance to purchase some 19" AMG alloys which I believe have came from a SL.

    The size of the wheels are as follows

    Front 8.5 x19 ET 30

    Rear 9.5 x19 ET 31

    I've studied the offset chart available elsewhere on the forum, but frankly it may as well be in japanese!

    I don't want to fit spacers and I certainly don't want wheels that may be detrimental or dangerous to the handling of the car!

    Can anyone advise if the above alloys will be ok on my W209? Also what size tyres should be fitted?

    Kind regards

    Stuart

    I had 18" SL alloys on my old CLK500... Fitted fine and had a great stance.....

    235/35/19 for front
    275/30/19 for rear

    They should fit perfectly with those offsets.

    I had ET35 rear and ET37 front and there was space for the wheels to come out to the arches a little more.

    What year was the SL the wheels came off as the later ones used an M14xR14 bolt wheras the 209 uses a M12xR12 bolt so if it is a later SL (230) you would need to change the bolts as the radius seat would be incorrect?

    Thanks Simon

    ^^^^Agree^^^^

    The wheels will be off a R230 judging by the sizes.
