Hello!
The wheels on this website are of completely low category. They are cheap immitation/copy of some AMG design. They are not fully tested for your benz and are made up of cheap material.

Save up the $600 and add another $600 in a few months and buy slightly used AMGs from ebay. I purchased very slightly used wheels from a friend and they were not a bad deal. I think people from this forum have purchased slightly used wheels from ebay and had no issues.

In other words i prefer used AMGs then a cheap immitation of which every other "aware" benz owner on the street would make fun of.

Goodluck

Re: Re: Anyone thoughts on these wheels??

It seems that these wheels were designed for the E-class, meaning the bolt pattern may/may not fit. but the offset is certainly not correct, and the tyre width is too narrow for a W140 S-class. I wanted to add this to ///S320s concerns, which are true and valid.

Thanks much.. You bring up some good points. Guess that is why I wanted to bounce this idea off of the group.

IF you can find the right offset, get some Carlsson's off Ebay. Top notch Benz outfitter. You can find some steals. I got mine for $800 dollars from Tirerack when they were dropping Carlssons distribution. Oberklasse out of Texas picked it up and they are selling the same rims for $2400.00 So if you cans snag some off the bay with no less than a 42 offset for about $1100, GO FOR IT! And BE official. There is more to being Benz official then JUST AMG's. Brabus, and Lorinser is out there too. Matter of fact, there are some D-93 Lorinsers on ebay right now.


BTW, just bought a 1992 190 2.6 in near mint condition. Baby Benz to go with BlackHorse, my W140.

Be careful with used wheels, particularly as you go up in size. I bought some 19" AMGs of someone on this board, and they were WAY out of round - I ended up spending $$$ to get them trued up. Ultimately would have been better off buying new.... Used is ok, but be careful. Also, I would have been better off if I had bought them thru eBay from a good seller.

Wait I didn’t finish saying what I wanted to say, and of course you buy the misses a nice diamond ring, that gesture will probably put you back in the house again at least for a year, or until you buy yourself another "present" in which case you will have to buy the misses another stone of some kind, the key word here is reciprocating. Trust me on this I live with three women, my wife and two daughters. [:D][:D]

those wheels

Those wheels appear to be similar to the ones that came on the '97 E420. I don't even think they're AMG replicas per se... Also, the OEM price for that style of wheel is about $200/ea, so that auction isn't that great of a deal.
