I would say worth every penny as well if you have those to through around. I know if I could spare it right now I would in the blink of an eye.

Those AMGOZ rims listed on EbayUK were snapped up last week at asking price.

There is another owner in the UK selling a set (with tyres included or removed if you want) with 9 offers already submitted, but i reckon he will get full price before it closes.
Ebay item: 150523121950

A german wheel shop has a re-furbished set for an undisclosed price (but they will be very expensive from him)
17" wheels - ... die FELGENwerkstatt

Or you can buy them new from a UK wheel shop for a bargain price of GBP 3,133 (that's USD$4,960) plus freight.

I have a set of perfect condition AMG 3 piece wheels that I might be pursuaded to sell. These wheels are better than new. Three of the four are apart, so the centers could be repainted away from the standard silver color. The fourth is still together. I have all wheel bolts fully cleaned and polished (35 per wheel), all back nuts have been yellow cadmium plated to minimize corrosion, the outer wheel lips are highly polished to a mirror finish (not clear coated, so they will need to be polished or you can clear coat them if you don't want to polish them regularly). I have 2 sets of these wheels (one set on my wife's R129 SL), so I know all there is to know about these wheels. Guarantee zero cracks or imperfections of any kind. The silver paint work on the centers are perfect. These are concours quality wheels. I also have correct original Mercedes AMG valve stems still in the MB boxes for these wheels. I have $3,000 invested in these wheels including the cadmium plating and valve stems. Located in Georgia. Was saving these for maybe a special W126 coupe in the future.....

Will an 11' wheel fit on w126 ?
Fit? Hmmm... it depends what you mean by "fit".

If you mean straight bolt on and sit inside the fenders, then no, they will not.

With the right offset, stretched tire, rolled fenders, negative camber and suitable ride height however, an 11" wheel can be made to fit.

It's all in the BS.

alydon, is your set staggered?

id love to have a second set even tho i dont have a another car t o put them on, but i guess they could go on the w140, or even the w220 or 221, lol...

mine are polished lips too, thats the best way to go, cuz the clear will crack,
put in some hard work and these wheel s are great

We have our member "JUKKA L" from Finland with his great looking SEC wearing OZ Futura 18" x 11" rears & 18" x 9" fronts.
Not sure what offset he has.

Al, i would be hanging on to thoses AMG's if i were you as no doubt they are only going to increase in value for a good set as time goes on. Unless you want the cash.

Doggfather, i would love to see pics of your AMG OZ rims mounted that you imported for your SEL. I thought you were going for deeper dish than 10" with mods reading between the lines from your posts earlier in the year?.
Can you post a pic up.

Yes, my wheels are staggered - 8.5 fronts and 10 rears. I took one of them out of the box last night. Stunning wheels. Not one corrosion pit in any of the polished rims or one paint flaw in any of the centers.

I even have a set of the extremely hard to find 10 point sockets for the wheel rim bolts. Can't work on these wheels without these sockets.
