Hey guys, wanted to get your opinion on these rims. My car is black. I also wanted to know if you think they will fit my car 95 E420. I think the tires are too low profile, but not sure. Seller says they are 7.5 wide all the way around. What do you think?http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=66483&item=7964817541&rd=1

i know 7.5's and 8.0's will fit in the front. 8.5's can fit in the rear. any higher will cause rubbing. i think you are fine. tell us how the purchase comes along and those rims look nice. don't leave them dirty :D

Yeah Smokie, spring is almost here so I need some Bling bling, my wife is not so convinced tho:) I like these rims, something different, but this rim, tire size thng is driving me crazy. They are on a W210 and I think the tires are too wide. The owner is not long winded with his responses. I don't want to drop a grand only to find out they rub like crazy. But, man these are sweet rides arn't they!

Judging by the size (17) those AMG AERO II's should be on a W124 since the W210 is supposed to have 18's.

I wouldn't be worried about the width too much 7.5 is within the limits of a 124. However you should look into the offset of the rim, here are the original specs for a 1994 400E, use them as a guide:

Bolt Pattern: 5x112
Offset Range: 35 to 40
Wheel Size Range: 16x6.0-20x8.5
OEM Tire Size (Front): 195/65-15 (195x635 mm)

Hope this helps.
