Judging from the offset they might be wider than 9"
The only way is to remove one and read the marking inside.
You can always go slightly wider

Hahah ok well Im looking for some nice wheels to go on my w126, I'd like them to be either 17" or 18" if I'm ok with a harsher ride. haha.. but I also want a deeper and wider lip, 9", 10"... I know some of the 3 pce Monoblocks had something like this so Im looking for some other rims, with the same dimensions of 17" x 9" or 10" (maybe larger)..

Can anyone help?

This style is my favorite for AMG wheels, but per my research it is older design. Over the years the AMG monoblocks were build with bigger and bigger spokes. I drove on monoblocks from 1990's and the picture in my profile still shows them. Got tired of bumpy ride on 17" and went back to OEM 16".
Sold the 17" to younger member who has stronger head and neck than I do
So if you want that design -look for the wheels from 1980's
