for the w124, I like more solid-looking rims. Rims like that with narrow and/or few spokes look a little too dinky for a car as heavy as the w124.

Bling-mobile wheels. With a 230E you don't have much power to back up that bling. JMO

They are too flashy, and in sizes 17" and up, just too big for the car.

AMG monoblocks are ALWAYS a good bet, aluminum or chromed. I personally don't like staggered wheels either.

I'm just wondering if staggered wheels have a little more to them than first meets the eye. When you think about it increasing the rear track relative to the front track makes the cars handling more rearward biased or prone to oversteer. Maybe it's a deliberate idea to dial out some of the understeer that the average car is set up for.

Definetly agree about the AMGs though.

if you like it go for it, it is your car, and you will be driving it, so you have to be happy with it. i persnally think it too much bling, but at the end of the day its your call.
