As my SLK alloys are corroded and kerbed from a previous owner, I'm after a new set of wheels. They don't have to be original MB and they may be bigger in size. What are my fellow SLK owners running?

I've seen some from a company called calibre that look quite good. Kind of euro style/RS500 and they are wider at the rear. Check them out on wheelbase.

Any thoughts or pictures chaps?

I would most certainly stick with something OEM, not just because they look better but also for insurance reasons.

Stick aftermarket wheels on your car and up goes your insurance policy. Fit dupgrade but standard equipment wheels on your SLk and you dont have that isue at all.

Have you considered gettiing your current wheels refurbed like new or dont you like the style?
