AMG wheels w/ missing nuts around ege

The wheels pictured in this website are very similar to the wheels on my car:

I have had a few of the nuts around the edge of the rim pop off.

Does anyone have any suggestion as to where I can find replacements?

If Mercedes makes rims with fake screws on them, this would be the first one I see.
Go to custom wheel shop and ask them.

I will check it out but those screws are purely aesthetic. If ur wheels have them, see what happens when you try to unscrew.

Again, per my knowledge MB never made such wheels. They very likely are aftermarket wheels and who knows how the manufacturer made the fake bolts. They might be cheap plastic. Wheel shop should know how to deal with it, or find you a replacement wheel.
