Had the wheel size post below and after searching I found these AMG replica's in what I'm thinking is the perfect size 17 for what I'm wanting. Anyway, some have inquired where I found these. Here is the link, I just paid $124 per wheel for 17 X 7.5 in silver powder coat, also available in chrome, they have lifetime gaurantee and this company has been selling this product line for approx 7 years with no complaints on build quality they say, these are 126 chassis specific, no spacers needed. Great price for those that are price concious and shipped for free! We'll see how they look in a few days.

Wow, you guys are fast...

Glad I made my own order before posting this thread!
They also have 16's and 18's in this wheel plus they do them in chrome for each size, did not check stock of those.

They look fantastic! Approximately $450. for 4 wheels is the price range I prefer. Know I could invest more for the tires.

The wheels have arrived and are on the car...

They look pretty damn sharp! I would be happy with this wheel at twice the price I paid ($124 per wheel) Again I have the 17 X 7.5 wheel and for $76 per tire from Tirerack I have General Tire's 235/45WR-17 Exclaim UHP wrapped around them which looks sweet and rides fantastic on this car. With new lugs, mounting and balancing I have under $900 in this setup and I was ready to pay over $1,300 for wheels alone. I 'm happy! I really need to find some H&R springs to set the front end down a bit.
Cheers
Russ
