Will these 05 wheels fit my 96?

Wheels 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5 rear

Offset 35 front and 40 rear

Bolt Pattern 5x112


They are off an 05 SL500, will they fit my 1996?

I had a link to an offset calculator, but the site is out. Do a google on "offset calculator"

You plug in your wheel sizes, and then the optional wheels, and the calculator tells how much the rim moves in or out, both inside dimension and outside dimension.

Then, go out to your car with a metric scale, and measure from your existing tires.

My 2000 Sl500 Came With Wheels From An 2003 Sl500 When I Bought It From The Previous Owner. They Will Fit But I Think You Need To Double Check The Wheel Studs You Will Need.

You will need to check your offset. Look in your manual in the back, the offset is listed there. I have an sl-320/97 and it is 22mm. For no aparant reason they are different on all different models, you would think they would not change these things so often....

Thanks guys, they fit perfectly. The lug bolts are different though, they are shorter. But otherwise they fit in perfectly.
