Question Wheels Wheels and more Wheels

Hello my name is Debbie. I have had my 300 sel for about 2 years now and I have been slowly referbashing the vehicle. I was some what forced into starting on the body a tad early when I had to be towed out of the mud about 2 mo ago. The tow company put a hugs hole through one of my wheel. To make a long story short, I ended up doing the 4 day man hunt for the wheel through the web. I finally found a chrome match 1000 mi away. When they arrived they were slightly different then mine.
My question is does any one know what the classification is on the older wheels. The ones I had on the car where the 15 X 6.5 with oval cut out( front on my profile pic). The ones that were sent to me and what I want to find two more of are 15 X 6.5 with square cut outs(back). I am totally confused in calling junk yards and searching on the web. Thanks for the help.
-Debbie

You found aftermarket "look-alike" rims, close but not perfect matches. There are (were) a lot of them around, especially chromed. Put two on one side, and two on the other -- no one will ever notice.
