Haven't seen a set of these on a w163 before.
Monoblock I style - typically used on w202 w124 w210.

These will take M14s?

Whats the ET on them?
Yes they will "fit" (broad term) 5x112 bolt pattern.

The recommended ETs for the wheel sizes.

And since they are 3rd party wheels, verify the bolt seating required ===> tapered (typically on aftermarket rims) vs conical (oem MB wheels bolts)

I had no idea these were 600.00 apiece till khomer posted the link. I could buy a whole ml for the price of 3.

Do what makes you happy 馃槉, for sure.

If it were me I search the pick apart yards first. I have seen lots of nice rims for 45.00 each. Including tires in some cases.

Sorry I just went back to read it a second time before you corrected me and saw the print that said a set of four. Not a bed price if the ET works.

My apologies, been a long day.

Question you mention the current tires have some life left what brandmodel and size are they?
I know you mention they are almost new.

But 275/5517 are becoming harder to find.
You may want to go to say an 18鈥 wheel. I know you are planning on keeping your ml for the long run. wear the current set out then Make the switch or sell the current set of wheels and tires.

Do you mean?

how do you increase ET?

answer

With spacers!

That was stated by khomer in post # 6.

Some have no problem using them, others think it is a bad idea, personal choice
Adding spacers will decrease ET. MLs require ET of 47+ depending on the width of the rim.

Matt

That is an excellent suggestion and now you got the gears spinning in my head! So I will locate a body shop to clear coat them. I send you my sincere thanks for your suggestion. I hope that we can be friends!
