They saw the thick coating of powder coat that was hiding all the defects. Personally, I think you will be better served to remove the powder coating and refinish the wheels yourself. These wheels are heavy enough as is, without adding a thick layer of powder coating.

I have pictures of all the defects. There's noway I'm going to pay to have them refinished. I don't have the extra money for that.
Actually, they look pretty good with the layer of powdercoat. I would definitely keep them if I could.

If nobody likes the way they look, hopefully someone with 16's with equal defects, will trade me.

I think they don't like the fact they can't read the inscriptions on the wheels identifying the maker, the size, and the offset. If you could either get better pics of those or clear away that part of the paint, you might get somewhere.

Do I still have any interested buyers if I clear that part of the powdercoat?

If I didn't just buy a set of aero's I would be all over these. This is like the 3rd set of 34et aeros I have ever seen the second set I bought. AMG aero's came in two offsets as far as I know most were 11 and some were 34. My guess is these are 34. The set i have is also 34 which are very rare. Even though the markings are blurred from the powdercoat all the markings look correct. Instead of scraping the powdercoat I will post pics of one of my rims to compare, just give me a day to do it. Also I would post these on vwvortex they should go pretty quick, for some reason those vw guys love rare mercedes wheels. Hopefully someone will jump on these....if not send me a PM after x-mas and I will take these off your hands......

Hey thanks for the help. Definitely most helpful post so far.
If they are rare, hopefully someone will want these soon, considering I'm not trying to sell them for an over the top price. Just trying to get rid of them for the price I bought them for, so I can buy some 16's.

I can account for those vw junkies becuase I'm one of them. I just haven't got a thread up on vortex yet, but I will be making one very soon. Just thought I'd try selling to all these mercedes folks first.

I'll definitely keep your offer in mind.

Thanks again.

If I could be certain these were really 17x8" ET34, I would have bought them already.

The Aero I was also available in ET28, as fitted to the AMG Hammer. Since the OP says these wheels came off a W124, I strongly suspect these are ET28. If that's the case, then they won't work for me.
