probably made by the same manufacture but put different label on. Just like many other goods we use everyday.

There is a very subtle difference in design, essentially on the deep dish step, where it meets the centre dish.

Main difference is that AMG 5-spokes NEVER had an offset of e=11 on the 9J wheels - original AMG 5 spokes had e11 only on the 8J wheels. AMG's take on the 9J 5-spoke was e=0 ! The pattern Penta's had e=1 on the 9J's and 8J's.

Finally, original AMG hologated wheels will carry FAR greater value than the Penta pattern wheels.

Man, are those 235/60/16 factory W140 tires? That thing looks like a serious off-roader...
