AMG Pentas: by Ronal 8JX16H2, 112 E11

I recently purchased these Pentas from a fellow board member. They are terrific but just not on my 300SDL. A bit too sporty looking for my taste. So I offer them with or without brand new (100 miles) Continental Extreme Contacts.

The wheels are on my car in Northwest Connecticut. I have boxes to ship wheels only but prefer local pick up for wheels and tires.

I'll take $1,200 firm for the wheels (a bargain) and $1,700 with tires.

225/55ZR X 16. They are awesome and I will put another set on my replacement wheels whatever they may be.
From the Tirerack: The ExtremeContact DWS (DWS for Dry, Wet & Snow) is Continental's Ultra High Performance All-Season radial developed for drivers of sports cars, sports coupes, performance sedans and sport trucks. The ExtremeContact DWS is designed to satisfy their year-round driving needs by blending dry and wet road performance with light snow and slush traction.

ExtremeContact DWS features an advanced silica-based, high-grip, all-season tread compound molded into a unique asymmetrical tread design with stable shoulder blocks and a continuous, notched intermediate rib on the outboard side to enhance responsiveness and cornering stability. The center of the tread features independent blocks separated by high-angle, crisscross grooves to provide the biting edges necessary to deliver wet road and light snow traction while independent inboard shoulder blocks help disperse water to further enhance hydroplaning resistance and foul weather traction.

The ExtremeContact DWS features Tuned Performance Indicators — visible letters molded into the second rib from the outboard shoulder to alert drivers of the tire's performance levels. A visible "DWS" indicates the tire has sufficient tread depth for dry conditions, as well as wet roads and light snow. After the "S" has worn away, the remaining "DW" indicates the tire only has sufficient tread depth for dry and most wet road conditions. And after the "W" and "S" have both worn away, the remaining "D" indicates the tire has appropriate tread depth for dry conditions only.

The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound jointless nylon cap plies to provide long-term integrity under high-speed conditions while reducing weight and helping to provide more uniform ride quality.

These are the later version AMG rims 8x16 ET 11 made for the bigger brakes on W126 and R107.
They are fitting all Mercedes from the 70ies to the 80ies (not W201/W124)

Tempting, not a huge fan of the late style though...
