Will they fit?

Hello,

I recently bought these TSWs for my 2015 SL550 "white arrow edition"

Diameter and width are same as stock (19x8.5 / 19x9.5) and I kept the same tire dimensions as well. However, the front and rear offset will be slightly greater.

I was just wondering if I'll need spacers, whether it be for functionality or aesthetics. Regardless, any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Indus

Yes, they will all fit. No need for spacers, unless for aesthetics, and if so then 10mm front and rear.

Perfect. I really appreciate you getting back to me. And absolutely, I'll add pics when I get them on. Im eventually going to go with air suspension and have them all tucked and crisp but until I have the funds and time for that, I'll be glad just to be back on the road.

Thanks again
Indus

TSW make some good wheels but don't expect cast wheels to last forever. Still looking forward to seeing them mounted though

Air suspension? Car is not equipped with it. Are you planning to have it installed? Is it even po$$ible?

Right, I definitely would like to upgrade to some better forged wheels. Ideally, Adv.1 brand, but I was quoted $9000 for the set, soo that will have to wait 😅. But for now I think these will do the job.

Airlift Performance makes kits that allow remote control of both psi and ride height, and their products are track tested and have been used on many different vehicles. I'm definitely going to try my hand with them, but the setup runs about $5000 so that's on the back burner for now as well..
But anything is po$$ible with the right motivation and resources, no? For now though, I'm still trying to get off my feet. Will definitely share my progress as it comes along, regardless of how long it takes.

Thank you all, it's great to be back on the road.

And ThreeMBs, no suspension work just yet. Just the wheels and windows tinted so far.

Looks great but I would actually recommend 10-15mm spacers for the rears...
