AMG replica.

The AMG rims you are looking for (monoblock) , are plenty on Ebay, get the real AMG, do not get the replica. The replica do not have the strenght to stand for the pot hole, it bend so easily, that's why they are so cheap.

New AMG rims are pretty expensive from a dealership, but if you keep your eye on eBay motors you might find some used ones for sale. If you don't see any, try placing your own "Want to Buy" ad. I tried that for some OEM MB wheels and got 2 replies.

i paid for my 18x8 front and 18x9 rear around $1900 with tires...and they are AMG Monoblock rims...honestly they look great on the car and they are very strong constructed, i live in nyc and roads are disgusting, and they endure everything and definetely they dont bend easily...spend few extra dollars and you will be satisfied...

it might be me, but i always thought the monoblocks where kinda plain looking...their styling doesn't seem to match the car

in fact the monoblock are the best looking rims for W210, they fit the car very nice without taking away the classy looks.
and the ones which is for sale here they have a lot of scratchs on em, i ll keep looking for nice ones.
