Hi

I am looking to do a swap with my current wheels. These wheels were on the car when I bought it and I just prefer the 17" Sports. (And I am a tight g*t when it comes to tyre cost!)

The first photo are the AMG wheels I have and the second are the wheels i am after.

If anyone is interested let me know

Cheers
:)

Hi,

I have the 17" sport wheels on my C180k (S203 2005). I believe they are called "Adharaz". They are the staggered ones with 225-45-17 on the front and 245-40-17 on the rear.

Not sure if they will fit but if so I may be interested in a swap. Mine are in need of a refurb though as the lacquer is starting to bubble on the spokes.

Where are you located?

I'll get some photos posted tomorrow (bit dark now :))

Tyres are Michelin Pilot Sport 3. Fronts and rears have 4mm tread (3mm in places). Fronts have more wear on outside of tread (I believe this tends to be a C Class trait). I am looking to replace fronts soon.

Are they genuine AMGs as I cannot find your wheels on the web. They are similar to AMG3 but not identical.

These are what I found on the web but they appear subtley different to yours?

AMG alloy wheels | Genuine new 17" AMG III | fits Mercedes CLK Class 209 | Alloy Wheels Direct Ltd

They would have to be genuine AMGs as my insurance would not accept imitations.

Are yours the staggered set up?

I have to be completely honest I have no idea if they are genuine I havent owned the car that long !!

Would anyone be able to tell me how I find out?

Take the wheel off and look on the inside for the MB part number. The picture you attached look like the newer AMG III style AMG alloy wheels | Genuine new 18" AMG III | fits Mercedes B Class W245 | Alloy Wheels Direct Ltd

You dont mention what size your AMG wheels are and if you have a W208 or W209?

Thanks for your help......

Ill look tomorrow for the part number and i am pretty sure they are 19" AMG from a SL...!! But like I say ill double check all this in the morning!

Ah, now we have a problem. I had assumed that your wheels were 17" or 18". I am not keen on going to a 19" as this was not a standard size option on the original car and my insurance would not be happy with that.

Thanks for your time but I am going to have to decline. Good luck with your search.

Assuming they are genuine you should easily be able to sell the 19" for more than a set of 17", plenty of 17" on ebay.

Hi

I have checked out the wheels today and they are 18" replica AMG III so I am really sorry to mess anyone around I genuinely had no idea!

They look so good aswell.....

Any Idea what I would get for them with tyres 2nd hand.!!

Thanks...
