R230 AMG III fit wheels on w140 CL600?

I have a w140 CL600 and picked up a set of 18" AMG II wheels ET30 and ET33. What do I need to make these fit correctly? Only new lug bolts? What size bolts?

I would suggest not. The standard offset for the 7.5Jx16 wheel is 51mm and for the larger 8.5 and 9.5x18 and 19 inch wheels it should be around 44-47mm.
That 30 that you have there is very low. I'm assuming the wheel is a wide one and if that's the case it will rub on the outer arch, as the lower the offset it has the effect of pushing the wheels out, away from the car.
You might also get problems with tramlining and suspension components wearing prematurely due to what amounts to a large change in the geometry.
