    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?

    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...
