    I have replaced my wheels and will be selling these 8 1/2 J x 18" with ET35. But, before I do, I want to be sure what they are so I describe them properly. They say AMG on them, however, on the back it says on one of the spokes "not OEM" - I'm guessing this means not Mercedes, but are they still AMG ? Anyone recognise the markings / wheel type?

    Any help much appreciated.

    Cheers

    With the fact that they are ET35 and they say NOT OEM I would say 100% they are replica wheels.

    Not genuine and there is no MB part number number on them.

    Fairly unusual to have the actual AMG logo on replicas (often says AMC if you look closely). But I agree these are reps.

    I always wondered what JIL referred to, and following a spot of Googling it apparently JIL stands for "Japan Institute of Labour" and shows that it's approved for sale in Japan.

    Apparently it is actually JWL, if you look closely the verticals of the letters have rounded bottoms making a W.

    Wiki says this

    Don't know if they fit a w211, if an early enquiry doesn't come to anything, they'll be on ebay in a week or so with spacers and bolts.
