How much price one of this rims?
this entire thread is years old, your better off starting a new thread asking questions that are direct and specific to your car.

I'll take a guess, I think the wheels you "MAY" be asking about are AMG Monoblock style II, in 17", more specifically C36 wheels.

Not really knowing exactly what you want, if it's just one wheel or a complete set, but C36 wheels came staggered, different widths front and rear.

Which wheel or wheels are you looking for, fronts are 7.5x17et35, rears are 8.5x17et30...?

If none of that means anything to you, you need to study up on wheels sizes and as they relate to specific model cars.

It may be better for you to start a new thread stating what you currently have, and what your looking for.

Pictures always help, something like this below.... if this is what you want, now you know what they are called and the sizes and part numbers. If you need something else, then you need to provide more information..good luck

Nice Color



WOW, love that color, wish my CE was your color. Mine is 199, and the 500E I just bought is a 199, and I wish it wasn't so expensive to swap colors all together. I'm a little tired of charcoal colored cars.


Anyway back on topic, while I've owned my CE I've also had the exact same wheel set, and when I bought mu car it had the similarly sized Mono I SLK wheels. I did not lower my CE and occasionally it would rub in the back. I had the rear fenders rolled and the rubbing went away.

His problem may be that he has lowered it too much, which make the problem worse of course. Using a set of all 4 front wheels, you could still put a wider tire on the back to give a staggered look, but a et35 wheel would pull the tire away from the fender.

BTW, the spec's for your wheels (you quote), are off "slightly", your fronts are really ET35 if they are AMG C36/43 wheels, it's the Mono I SLK wheels that have ET37 fronts, I know because I owned both set types and ran them both. I ran the same tire sizes as yours on both these two sets as well, they looked great.

The reason I sold both sets, Mono I's and II's, was that by luck I ran accross a set of 16" true OZ Aero I 3 piece wheels. These wheels did not come staggered, all 7.5" wide, but to me now, they are the perfect 124 wheel, with an et of 40, they are perfectly sized for a 124, and the 16" tire is just a better ride. I could lower mine a lot, and these wheels would still NOT rub.

Kudos on you CE, really nice.

I rather enjoy being able to go 10- 20 over without attracting undue attention from the rozzers. Grey, invisible cars for the win. Bright, red, shiny, cars for the cars and coffee meets.

Color preference opinions are numerous, kind of similar to whats the best oil, (don't answer that...lol), or what wheels would look best. There is room at the "Meets" for all colors, I once had a very narrow range of appreciation for colors, reds particularly were on the undesirable list, but ever since a friend purchased a 500E in Garnet Metallic, I've looked at other colors with a more appreciative eye. I'm still not fan of colors like Imperial red or Signal red, but certainly other folks do like those colors. Greens are another dislike for me, but yet in the 126 forum a SEC owner repainted in a Petrol Blue, (really green), and thats is one of the nicest looking understated car I've ever seen. That's what makes the Meets fun, the variety and diversification of styles and looks. There are so many black, white and silver MBs out there, it's nice to see one with a warm color.once and a while. Anyway, there are shades of grey that do appeal me as well, and certainly my 040 SL500 is a killer look when it's cleaned up. The invisible thing certainly has a payback when it comes to being eyeballed by the troopers, for certain, flashy colors do get looked at harder, but I've gotten over that a while back and generally stay close to the limits or close to the traffic speeds around me. Usually there is some kid out there with his Civic tricked out with a Wing on the trunk to keep the car stable(ROFL), making lotsa speed and loud radio and exhaust noises, oh yea, and the completely darkened windows as well, nothing suspicious there eh?? I let them fly by me, and many time when I catch up to them they are pulled over with a cop picking through his belongings...lol...Been there - done that - years ago with Corvettes and really fast motorcycles, the tickets and insurance and lawyers can get very expensive. Now days, 10 over for me is rarely noticed
