As I understand it, these wheels are not approved for sale in Germany because they do not meet their safety standards. Unless yours are different, the ones coming out of Europe are sold as 'show' wheels, not for street use. We've had a number of threads on this at the W126 forum.
Personally, I think they're stunning looking wheels.
