Good point. But why not assume just because they are Mercedes-Benz wheels they will fit all cars? That is what smart people will do!

Dead hooker? Wheels need a better background than the ground? Are you being serious?

I took the pictures because, yes, I don't know what car they're for. I was hoping to get some advice, which I got, but I wasn't asking for a bunch of people to take some time out of their day to be assholes towards me. Find someone else on the Internet to pick on, I don't need it.

I'm dead serious. If you want to make something attractive to a buyer then you have to take good pictures. These look like they have been in a dump, not a barn, for years. They may be good parts but your presentation is flawed. If you don't get that I'm not sure any of us can help you.

Numbers NOT Stamped

If these are true Mercedes wheels, the numbers are there along with the Mercedes partnumber.

The numbers are cast into the back of the wheels as raised digits, like braille.

A blind person could probably read them, , the numbers are not stamped into the wheel back... see attached pix

There is no special placement, probably different location on each wheel design. Hard to find sometimes because of the brake dust, but they are there.

In the picture below, the embossed numbers say this example wheel is 7 1/2 inches wide, 17 inches in diameter, and it's Offset is 37 mm.

Probably not for this set of wheels, but good to check anyway, look to make sure ALL four wheels are the same. Sometimes the wheel set is "Staggered", which means the rear wheels are wider and have a different offset than the fronts. This is very important to specify, all 4 the same or staggered, showing the different sizes of the front and rear seperatly.

Don't get upset over the comments, although somewhat sarcastic, the commentors are on the mark, and if you take their advice you'll have a better chance of selling them. Their advice will make you more money!

Besides the basic presentation angle, buyers really can't determine if there are defects below the dirt or not...

You may not have noticed, but the market for good wheels has dropped dramatically, so you need to put your best foot forward to get even close to your asking price.

Now take a look at what the other number is as shown in his picture (below) and that might tell you what car model the wheels were from. Yours may not be right below, could be somewhere else. Better yet, post all the numbers you can find, and don't forget to check all 4 wheels as they may be different.

they're 124 401 1402

they may be off a 1994 SL600, as per another post in this forum about wheels with this part number.

If you scan thru that list I put in my first post, there are 3 exact matches, and 1 very close, but all will have different part numbers

Exact size -

W201(190) - with tire size 225/50

W124 - with tire size 225/55 - (could be 500E wheels)

W129(SL) - Same tire size as W124

Close -

W211 with ET36 - Tire 225/55

probably fit a few others, but these stick out. I bet the part number you find will match one of the top 3...

Just saw your post, bingo, these may be 500E wheels... very nice & you should be able to sell them

The first 3 numbers are the car type.. it's off a W124, and the only 124 I think used this size were the 500E's

PS: very nice job cleaning them up, opps, the closer I look all pics may be only one tire.
Now can you clean up the rest so we can look close at the finish of all 4...tanx

PS: here is a picture of the exact wheel on a W124 coupe, a BW member

Yup, so these would fit a 500E.

This says about the same wheels:

Quote:
The wheels came off a 1994 SL600.
So they might work for those too?

And yeah, I'll post the rest of them. They're hard to work with because of how cold it is, and I am not taking them in my house and getting dirt everywhere. One of the center emblems is missing and another one is cracked, the other two are solid. Tires are shot, so they're not included.
