    And obviously not actually split rim (I know you did put that in quotes).

    Just the split rim 'look' as it were but a cheap spare set of wheels maybe. Pig to clean though!

    However, are they a staggered set up?....if they are all the same width they just look wrong on the back wheels as they wont fill it out.

    To be honest they look cheap and nasty. Quite why anyone would put cheap wheels on an R129 escapes me :dk:

    TBH a genuine set of AMG split-rims could be worth almost as much as an old R129, so I can see why you often see replicas on them.

    True, but genuine Mercedes or AMG wheels are preferable to replicas. Personally, I don't like the super expensive splits :eek::D
