Considering new wheels

I have the opportunity to buy these wheels for my 129 (see attached pic). They are MB wheels and were fitted to the last of the line Silver Arrow limited edition 129s. I need a bit of advice about sizes.

My car is a 1999 SL500, so it has the bodywork mods for larger wheels. My alloy wheel brochure suggests that these wheels should be 8.5J x 18" wearing 245/40 R 18 tyres on the front axle and 9.5J x 18" wearing 275/35 R 18 tyres on the rear axle.

However, the vendor of the wheels states that all 4 are 9.5J x 18" and they came off a car like that. What do you think? Will they fit?
