Set of 15" ATS Bundt wheels for sale!

I have a complete set of 4 ATS 15" Bundt wheels. I no longer have a car these will fit on so they're just taking up space. Asking $1000 or best offer. I also have a set of ATS centercaps for the wheels.

Most haven't a clue even if they see reference to it stamped on the wheel.

Fortunately most modern wheels have the ET formatted with the width and diameter, but these older wheels frequently have the ET stamped in a different location.

Some older AMG wheels don't even have the letter ET, just a number all by itself for you to figure out what it means..

All those pictures, and not one that has ETxx in it...

These ATS wheels are et23, or e23 as cast into the wheel.

As far as I know ATS only made one offset of 15" bundt. I only posted pictures that verified that they are in fact 15" and ATS since I have run into many cases of people trying to pass 14's off as 15's. I don't think you can call yourself a car guy/gal if you don't know the difference between backspacing and offset.

Has anyone tried these on a 560sl?

Can you post pictures of the full backside showing the space for protruding calipers?

I'm in South FL and would GLADLY meet up with any 560SL owner (or anyone else for that matter to test fit these to see if they clear everything.

Here are pics as requested. Hopefully they give you an idea of what you're looking for:

Thanks! The 560sl caliper apparently protrude about 1.5" outside the mounting plate surface. So if those spokes provided that depth the whole way, they'd be a sure shot, but it looks like there is only 1.5" at the very outer edge.

Kudos to you for knowing exactly what I wanted to see though. Nice work with the straight edge Allen wrench. (I'd never thought of that when I was trying to find a straight edge that would fit inside the wheel.).

If you can measure the distance to the spoke closer to the mounting plate, then we could determine the size spacers that would be required to make these work. If it is only about 15mm, I bet these will be easier to move.

560sl owners seem to often be seeking something new to put on their cars and have very few known options. A few members are working on figuring out how to get steelies and hubcaps to fit. Bundts are along the same line of thought in my opinion.

Thanks!

I had to run spacers before to clear a big brake kit on another one of my cars so I'm all to familiar with measuring beforehand and then test fitting. I'm not sure how your calipers are shaped exactly so my guess will be to use the washer/spacer method. Stack washers at the estimated thickness and then bolt your wheels on the hub and see if it rotates freely and then measure clearance. I ran about 1/8" of clearance on a newer car with no issues.

I went ahead and measured the distance from the outside edge of the lugbolt hole (0") to the inside edge of the wheel (4"). I'm sure you know that 1" is exactly 25.4mm so you can calculate mm's if needed. With the price of H&R spacers (the only ones I use, and they're TuV approved) I'd wait until you could test fit the wheel yourself before ordering spacers just to be sure. The first number is the length from the outside edge of the lugbolt hole, the second is the depth from the mounting surface.

(0",0"), (1/2",0"), (1",1/2"), (1 1/2",23/32"), (2",7/8"), (2 1/2",1 1/16"), (3",1 1/4"), (3 1/2",1 3/16"), (4",5/8")

The inside diameter of the wheel at the mounting surface is 13 1/16"

Hopefully that more than enough data for you.

eagle-co94. You have gone above and beyond to provide information.
They are pretty rare wheels at a decent price IMO. If I were in the market for them for one of my 107s they would no longer be for sale.

Thank you.
