Hello, These 16x8's came on my '02 SL500. I'm the 2nd owner, after the dlr, and I want to return to the 18" staggered. Not finding these exact wheels anywhere, I am having a hard time with value. Trying to minimize my transition cost since I just put new Plus A/S's all around. Thanks...

Vin info

Dug into my VIN decode and found this, thought it was a strange wheel choice decision... 772 AMG STYLING PACKAGE-FRONT SPOILER, SIDE SKIRT
774 SHELL MODIFICATION FOR AMG-WHEELS
794 AMG-WHEELS 7,5 X 17 SQUEEZE-IN DEPTH 37 VA 225/45. So I have to guess someone wanted a better ride, maybe?

Real MB wheels will have MB P/N stamped on them in the back. So remove the wheel and see what is stamped

2001/2002 came with sport package, which means you should have staggered AMG monoblock II's

Aha!

Looks like I found the wheels maker! They are Hartmann W8 Replica Chromed wheels. 16x8. 5x112 The folks locally at Discount Tire will keep an eye peeled for a buyer for the tire/wheel combo so he can sell me the 18" staggered origional size since they sold me the tires not long ago. Since the 16's should fit a wider range of Mercs, they should offset my cost well.... Thanks, everyone, for the input. Hard to do shipping with my physical disability, so eBay is out of the question... Peace All, wish me luck. (ps: the pic is the polished, none avail of the chromed)
