Looking for a set of ATS / AMG Penta wheels in 16 or 17"x8 size to go on a c107. I believe the needed offset is ET 11. Any leads? Any replicas still made if no originals avail?

Or have any experience with the wheel set up of 8.5×17et18*on the front and

9.5×17et17 on the rear? Just wondering of these would bolt straight on without suspension or fender mods.

I think the big question with the aftermarket reproductions is ... are they cast or forged? Pricing leads me to believe they are cast. Not a big deal I suppose driving at posted speed limits, but at high speeds or aggressive cornering could be. Crack one of those spokes at +100mph and could get ugly.

Here’s a BBS cast replica that was on a Porsche.

They are cast. And I won't be doing much spirited driving in my SLC. Have a set on their way to me now.

While I'm not sure the quality of the Asteroid wheels, it's worth noting that many high quality wheels are cast including most factory wheels.

Please post pics when you get them installed!

Ronal R9 from BMW 5x4 3/4 with adapters to 5x112 fits to c107/r107 ?
The adapters are generally 25mm, so you might have front wheels sticking out past fender.
