Thumbs down

All I can say is dumbass for the two different styles.

Good choice of ride.

And less than perfect offests for custom wheels. The rears look like they could come out 0.5-1"!!!

Less than perfect.

I would guess they put on the two different wheels to show how they look on a SL500. If you look at the 4th pic or so the car doesnt have a license plate but has a plate for the shop. Maybe they just threw it on for *****s and Giggles....

its probably a demo car for shows etc. I saw a few cars at the Atlanta Auto Show with a diff. set of wheels on each side.Either way that car is sicker than sick. Brandon, you'll pay for posting these pics

I know the owner of that car - it is not a show car, he did just to be different, and he couldn't pick which style he liked better

HRE makes two different wheel offsets for these cars- one for guys who don't want to roll the fenders (like most of the WHINERS on this board), and one for those who want a more aggressive, european look (fender rolling required).

He chose the conservative set-up.
