Have a set off my 1997 SL500 that I need to disposition, but really don't have a clue how to value them. They are straight and undamaged, no curb rash, but some tool marks and dings, minor peeling, brake dust on the interior face that I took a jab at with a pressure washer, needs more than that, though.

I'd want them refinished before mounting on my car, and have thought about just saving them for the E500, but they're 18's and it has 16's and won't need tires for 4 years or so at the rate I drive it.

So, what's a good value for the wheels both unfinished and re-finished?

Are they 1 piece or 2 pieces.....??

$100 each for the 1 piece...

If you want to sell it fast then price should be lower than $100 each....

2 pieces you will get a lot more, since it more rare.....

Pictures would help on giving the value of the wheels.....

Cheers, 馃檪

Thanks. Guess those folks on eBay that have them are dreaming then. Not challenging your valuation, as I don't really have a clue, it's why I asked. But I wouldn't go through the trouble of the transaction and shipping for $100 a wheel, these buggers are heavy.

They are 1 piece, like these, part numbers match mine:

Rear: Mercedes-Benz W210 Genuine MONOBLOCK E55 AMG wheel rim E300 E320 E430 E420 REAR | eBay

Front: 2000 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG - Alloy Monoblock Rim - 1294010102 (see pictures) | eBay

$300 plus.....hahaha.... what a joke......I guarantee at those price on ebay they not moving......

Even at $400 for a full set, you will still have a hard time moving them quickly....

Good luck with your sale my friend.....

Yeah, I'd figured that was a dream. I've seen them re-finished for a couple grand, couldn't imagine anybody taking a flyer on used condition for $350-$400, though.
