WTB: 18" staggered for r129

Seeing if anyone has a set of 18" staggered wheels either a AMG 2 piece wheel or standard AMG Star type wheel staggered for a r129/90-02 SL.

If anyone has them let me know price and how much to ship to 19152. Thanks in advance.

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.

I have a complete set of the authentic 2 piece 18s staggered 8.5 up front and 10 in the back. Goodyear Eagle f1s on the back with 90% left and new kumhos up front. Currently getting completely refinished. Would like to sell them and return to stock and fund repairs (crashed the car).

Sorry to hear about the accident. I hope you weren't hurt. I'm not even sure if 10" will fit on my R129 SL500. Do you have any pictures, what kind of price were you thinking? Of course, Pete gets first dibs but just incase.....

Well, these are the set that were built for the rare r129 SL55 AMG, so I'm sure they'd fit any r129. They fit my C43 wonderfully without any spacers.

They were on the car when I bought it. PO said they were on the car when he bought it, too. No idea how they ended up on a C43.

I have pics of them before the refinish, but they're very poor pics. The wheels (and car) are in the shop right now. I asked them to completely restore all 4 wheels first, so I could sell them while they're working on the rest of the car. As soon as I have word that they're done, I'll get a good picture.

Here's a very very poor photo of them from the back angle sitting in my terrible driveway:

I might be very interested if Pete doesn't want them. Any idea what you're looking to get out of them?

$2500 OBO. Shipping is a mystery. How would one even ship things like this?

I'll start a thread for them if you pass.

My father in law runs the shop that's restoring them. I'm sure they'll have a shipping plan we can use.

Pass? Offer?
