    Looking for some upgrade alloys for my SL500, probably 18", staggered setup preferably.

    Not too worried about condition as I can get them refurbed.

    Anyone got anything interesting?

    Best I can manage here is a set of 17" Brabus IV's, but I'll keep my ear to the ground.

    Actually they arent bad at all, they look like the OEM 8 hole ones. Do you have the wheel size/price, tyre type, tread depth etc?

    Also, do normal MB centre caps fit?

    There's a picture of them on my SL floating around here somewhere, Karl took it @ Jay's GTG.

    They're 8x17, currently sporting a 6mm pair of 225/45 Goodyear GSD3's (not really correct for the SL) and a 4.5-5mm pair of 235/45 Pilot Sports.

    Don't think normal MB caps will fit (too small) but I have seen it done so perhaps there are copies out there that do.

    Yeah, suspected that might the case. The only thing I have closer to that is a set of Ceginus/EVO2 wheels, with nearly new Eagle Asymmetrics.

    Will see what I come across though.

    Not sure if these will do you, but I have a set of Sador 17" Light alloys off my SL320 (R129). They are all 8.25J with 245/45/17 Wanli tyres. All need a refurb. I've upgraded to 18" now and will be selling sometime soon.

    Including very new Goodyear tyres all round....

    £1200.

    I recon the tyres are worth half that.
