Still need these gone ASAP. Moving and I have no room for them.
I paid $800 for these, I know they aren't in the best condition, but I'd still like to get something for them. Shoot me your best offers.
Willing to meet, depending on location.
Help every one out with the ET thing...
Clean off the back side of the wheels and find where the ET is cast or stamped into the wheel.
Why keep the ET a secret? Are you afraid to tell us what it is, or just don't want to bother?
When I sell wheels from afar, I take pictures of the part numbers and the sizes, and post them. Mercedes went out of their way to put the info on the back side of wheels. Why are you ignoring the requests to tell us what is already there for you to find if you take the time??
PS: not for nothing, but I picked up another set of these for free, (peeling chrome - yuk), just had to pay shipping from San Francisco, and now I have to pay to have the chrome removed and get them back to OEM condition. By the time I'm done I'll have about $600 invested, and they don't have curb rash or cracks, and they are round. You'll be lucky to get anything for this set in this condition and paint color. If they were in GOOD condition AND with OEM paint color, you might ask $600, and still wait a long time for a buyer. Not much of a market for 16" wheels to begin with, then they are curb rashed, cracked, and black.. finding the right buyer for those is like hitting the lotto.
See my attached picture of the front side of an Aero I 16" like yours. The wheel in this picture happens to be chromed which makes the lettering hard to read sometimes, some paints and powder coating will do the same. Although most wheels have this on the back, some older AMG monos have the sizes cast into the front of the rim. They are not all the same, but you should find them somewhere if the paint coating hasn't made them unreadable. If the numbers are unreadable, look at the 3rd picture, with measurements 1 & 2, I'll tell you the offset in about 30 seconds! Lay the wheels down on a good flat surface, place a accurate straightedge across the inside rim surface, then measure as accurately as you can, the distance to the wheel hub, and the distance to the floor. Post those two numbers and I'll post back the ET, based upon known sizes these wheels were built in.
If you want to calculate it yourself, it's easy, 1st convert both measurements to metric, in my case, measurement 1 = 5 13/16's, (5.8125) and 2 = 8.5". Convert to MM and 1= 147.64mm and 2 = 215.9mm. ET formula as follows;
ET = Measurement 1, minus (1/2 of Measurement 2)
ET = 147.64 - (215.9 * .5)
ET = 147.64 - (107.95)
ET = 39.69mm
OK no such animal as et39.69 so depending upon your measurement accuracy it's got to be a round MM number, most likely 40mm, or 39mm, or 38mm. Since we can find they made these wheels in 37mm and 40mm, (besides others), it's most likely 40mm. I think it's possible to find these wheels in et11 as well, a huge difference. That's why your being asked what the ET is, an et11 wheel mounted on a car meant to have et40 wheels, will stick way outside the fenders, looking like a Jeep ready for 4-wheeling, and a et40 wheel mounted on a et11 car will have the wheels rubbing the inner suspension. ET is very important, proper ET will keep the wheels centered inside the fenders and not rubbing anything... Many cars/models can share wheels, but many can't as well, knowing the ET requirements of your car and what the et of wheels for sale is, is extremely important for good fitment.
