15" bundt wheels

Guys I located and bought 15" Bundt wheels. I have 5 from Centra and accidentally bought 1 ATS 15" bundt wheel. Which brand is more sought after? Which one looks the best on the 300SE coupe? I am kind of leaning towards the ATS wheel as I like the look over the Centra wheels, but now I am 3 wheels short.
The first picture is the ATS wheel, the second is the Centra wheel, the third shows comparison from an angle.

I have 5 Centra 15" bundts, and have been thinking on tire size and am leaning towards 205/60 x 15.

How much should I expect to pay for ATS 15" bundt wheels, and who might have some spare wheels?

What is a set of 15" Centra Bundt wheels after they are refinished worth?

I believe I have my 93 C2 964 project car sold, so I may in a couple of weeks actually be able to start my 65 300SE project.

Jim

I am definitely a fan of the ATS... as previously mentioned they appear larger due to the thinner inner lip and shorter spokes... the deep lip is also accented by this as well. I am running a set on my 300D Turbo and love them. Definitely a little more aggressive looking in a very subtle way.
Running them on 205/60/15's and they look and handle just right.

They are hard to find here in the U.S. but are a little easier to find overseas. ebay.de is a good place to look if you are willing to pay a little on shipping.

Not sure what the Centras are worth but theres no doubt in my mind that they will be worth quite a bit to the right buyer- not uncommon to see a set of refinished 15" bundts go on U.S. ebay for over $700 esp if they are mounted on quality rubber. Obviously many M100/6.3/6.9 and SL people want them for increased tire selection and handling performance over the OE 14" wheels and there are always people looking for a set of 15" Bundts to do so while keeping the OE look.

I couldn’t say it any better. I’ve seen both wheels on cars and the ATS always seems bigger and a better look wheels.

So if these were available in 16 x7 would there be interest? Is the tire selection on the 16" more desirable than the 15" wheels? thanks for all the responses. Jim

In my opinion, yes. I know some people may argue about comfort, but there’s plenty of tire left for comfort! Like 205/55/16. As for looks and handling, they would be awesome.
