Mercedes-Benz 500 SL Spare Tire Sizes
The Mercedes-Benz 500 SL has used a 5x112mm bolt pattern for all models from 1990 to 1993 along with a tire diameter of 25.7" tall. Using a temporary spare tire with a diameter close to the standard tire has many benefits, especially for modern vehicle applications. Tire diameter as well as wheel diameter clearance have been taken into account for Mercedes-Benz 500 SL spare tire selections. In this case, a 155/70R17 temporary spare tire is the recommendation for all applications.
