    Hello there,

    I have the above and would like to purchase some AMG style wheels for it, however i'm completely lost. I've searched for the wheels I want (and have seen) on other ML's (on the early 500's I do believe) but am getting nothing coming up.

    I have seen the wheels I want coming up as 17's but they're for C class's??

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    Many thanks

    Are these the wheels you're looking for?

    No unfortunately not. I've just searched the ML500 and the wheels i've seen arn't anything like them.

    It's very weird, the style in the link from ebay is the style i'm looking for, but maybe i'm going mad and wanting something I can't have? It's this style...

    I think you'll struggle as those on your picture weren't made neither offered for ML. Not saying they can't be fitted but you need to check their load rating and offset obviously! Looks like they are staggered too.

    Hey chaps,

    These are the wheels I am after however i'm not the "ebay" type.
    Can anyone tell me if they're the correct offset for my 2000 ml? It says 8.5 and am fully aware that the police frown upon wheels that stick out further than the arches. Plus the last thing I want is to have problems after fitting them.

    Thanks in advance for all positive thoughts..
