FS: Amg Aero I Monoblocks

They are 17x8 et32. From the W124 chassis.

I bought them from I guy on here stating they were 16's, but come to find out, they weren't. So I'm trying to sell these so I can buy some 16's of the same wheel. If you have some and you want to trade, I'm totally down for that.

The seller told me they were refinished and powder coated. You can't make out the specs on the wheels, but they look brand spankin' new.

My gf is borrowing my camera so I can't take any pictures, but I will have some up as soon as possible. Of all four wheels and the specs that you can't make out.

I bought them for $650, so that's what I'm trying to get. Two of the boxes still haven't even been opened.

Thanks for looking. I'm in Ok. 74114

Hmm, if your seller couldn't identify 16 vs 17, "AND" you can't make out the spec's on the wheels,

How do you really know the ET is 28?

The offset can be measured, just wondering if you have confirmed the ET via measuring, or are you taking the sellers word that they are 28's?

If you need help with the measurements PM me, it's easy, but the wheels must be bare...no tires

I have a set of 16's I would consider swapping, but your width is too much for my purposes.... 7 1/2 is as wide as I'd go myself on my 124's..

Strange you can't read the numbers, I've never seen paint obscure the numbers before... here is a shot of one of my 16's, semi-polished & clear coated. They will get painted over the winter, but the picture is to show you where they might find numbers on your wheelsl, if they are the same vintage.

As you can see in my bottom picture, they are 7 1/2J x 16H2 E40..

If I were you I'd try to include a picture of the numbers as best you could...

I measured the offset, came out to around 26/27, so I was assuming they were 28.
I'll try to take and post all the pictures tomorrow. I'll have my camera back by then.

This should hopefully confirm the offset.

Width = 8, Overall Width = 9:



Backspace = 5.75:



Measurements on paper:



Turns out I was off by a little. The offset is probably 32mm instead of 31.75mm. Maybe someone on here can confirm that.

I'll have to post the pictures of each wheel tomorrow, because I still have to edit them and I have to get to work soon.
Thanks

1st Wheel

Well I had time for the first wheel, so here are some pictures.



Here are the string of numbers that are unreadable.



The backside of wheel one.



And a little chip on the front side of wheel one. Hardly noticeable.



My seller said the chips are from his seller not wrapping them up properly with bubblewrap.

I will post the other three wheels tonight.

Fourth Wheel

Front:



Unreadable string of numbers on fourth wheel:



Chips and dings on back lip:




More rough powder coat:




So basically if you aren't picky these are in almost perfect condition from the front side and you could run these immediately.

You can also message me at jackfranklin2@yahoo.com

Thanks for looking!
