Help Identify this wheel

I recently purchased the wheels pictured below from C-list. They are 19" 2 piece OEM Benz, and the seller told me that they came off of an 04 S500. It was not his car, so I am not sure if he knew what he was talking about. I couldn't pass them up for $200.

Can anyone give me the specs on these?
Bolt pattern
Back Spacing

Thanks for any help.

Look at the stamped numbers inside.
If that is OEM wheel, it would be the first Mercedes wheel with fake screws I see.

That is not an OEM wheel. I have an '04 W220 and I am fairly familiar with the OEM wheels that came either as standard equipment or optional fitment. I do not believe there was a 19" optional wheel. 17" was standard, and the AMG wheel option was 18". The S55 ///AMG may have had a 19" wheel; I am not familiar with the ///AMG version.

In any event, the wheel you show is not an OEM wheel. As Kajtek says, and I agree, there is no OEM wheel that is two-piece--at least that I have ever seen. Is that wheel really two-piece, or does it just appear to be two-piece?

Good luck finding its origin.

You guys are absolutely correct. Forgive me, but my wheel measuring skills are lacking, these are 18s, and 1 piece with fake removable screws. They have the Mercedes emblem cast into the inner side. The inside says RONAL GERMANY and I will get all of the numbers later.

So it looks like it is the AMG 18" option wheel, I will do some more searching, thanks for the help guys!

I still think it is an after market wheel, not an OEM one. Ronal makes very high quality wheels, so I'm not disputing its quality (or how expensive it likely was) and I think Ronal made some OEM wheels for Mercedes. This style, however, is not an OEM style wheel which is why I believe it is after market.

I could be wrong--Mercedes uses a variety of wheels as options for various models. If this is an OEM wheel I don't think it was for the W220.

I'm just trying to help you get the origin of this wheel. My advice is my best guess from memory. I'm not sure where to look for a definitive answer. If you Google the part number on the wheel, you may find your answer.

Good luck.

9.5J x 18 ET46-275/40 R18 MO (B6 647 4101)

"Sterling silver finish, high-sheen rim flange. 5-spoke wheel multi-piece."

Money! Thanks Reddog! You are the man. Does the 2 sizes mean they are a staggered setup.

"yes". Note the tire sizes. Also, are there any confirming part numbers on the back side of the wheels?
