On the far right, between the two mounting holes, it sure looks like it reads "AMG" (unless I'm becoming blind). You need to get the rest of the numbers off that wheel because you need to know if it's a 15" or a 16", if it's 7", 7.5", or 8" wide, and what the offset is.

Once you know those things, you'll know what models it can fit, then a price can be figured out. It varies based on the size and condition, but for a set of four - $300 on the low, $600 on the high.

These are my original AMG wheels:

are there any that will not fit on a 123?

Thanks for the pic of your rims...also how much do you think refinishing cost on these and did some come with black centers and a chrome lip from the factory?

Those look like 16x8's. Those will need a proper refinishing, likely costing about $100 a wheel, maybe more unless you do it yourself. For the condition those are in, I'd say 3-400. You still need caps (available at your dealer) but they look nice, at least the one pictured, no curb rash which is pretty awesome. If you don't want them, let me know. I could use two.

POS, your wheels are E16? Does that mean an ET of 16 as well? I know the original Bundts are ET23...? Sorry not a wheel guy (yet)...

15" x 7" with an offset of 16.

Sure it is; need the numbers off it to tell you. Or a better photo.

cool....well I hope to get a couple more pics today. A buddy gave me the heads up on these. The guy who owns these rims lives 4 hours away from me so I can't just go over and snap some pictures.


Are the 16" worth more than the 15" and what is a fair price for the set?

16s are worth more then the 15s - how much depends on condition. Look for curb rash and paint peeling. Looks like they'll have to be restored, but at the minimum they'll have to severly cleaned up.

$3-400 for how they look now - if they're 16s.

Was there talk of splitting up the set?

I have a mismatched set, and need to straighten it out, if the sizes are right.

Or, I could trade someone, but that might be another thread alltogether.

Yeah, I am not interested in breaking up the set. If I did that, that would be mean I would not have a complete set...pretty pointless...if the guy has more than 1 set I will be more than happy to put you in contact with him, but not until I get my set...
