Hi all,

I am now entering day 8 since collecting my S600 - best car I've ever had!

She came to me with the horrible '8 hole' wheels and to make things even better no locking wheel nut key either.

Wheel nuts drilled off Friday and new wheels fitted today. The rears are 9.5j and the front 8.5j.

Your thoughts on how they look would be appreciated.

Regards,

Ryan

I found them on eBay they are off the new shape S600 salon - I paid £550 with 6mm conti's all round. I love how they look.

Nice, good period fit. Are they manufactured by Ronal?

Looks nice :)


However please check one thing. The w220 S600 uses M14x1.5 wheel bolts and as far as I am aware the w140 S600 uses m12x1.5 bolts. Your wheels might have bolts that need to be "sleeved". HTH.

The W140 was the first MB to use M14. The bolts will be correct so no worries there.

Looks good. I've just bought a C140 with factory AMG alloys, not a V12 though

They suit the car to a 'T', kind of makes it look 'sporty'. Good choice :thumb:
