I need your guys opinion

I am thinking about getting wheels like this one for my 123 from a shop next to mine.

They look just like this but in a lot better condition. They are AMG 16 x 7?. He is asking $200. What do you guys think. Also will they fit a 123 and what tire size would you go with?

I'd try a test fit before buying them. Try it on a front axle and see if the lower tie rod would come in contact. If they don't have tires try estimating where the sidewall of a tire would stick out and make contact with tie rod.

I will definitely try them first. They have 205 55 r16 on them right now. He said I can put them on mine and drive around for a day or two. If they fit do you think that is a good price? I haven't seen that style wheel around too often. Maybe there is a reason?

Looks like a deal to me.

Those look like the AMG Penta wheels. They are HIGHLY desirable and give the W123 and W126 cars the correct AMG period look.

Are they in fact authentic AMG wheels? If so, and in good condition, $200 EACH would be well worth the money, even if they came without the correct AMG center caps on them.

If they are in good condition, and you like them, and they will fit your car, I would jump on that deal immediately!!! Deals like that don't come around very often. If you get tired of them later, you could easily resell them for more than what you paid, I would think.

That's $50 per wheel. Even if they do not fit, buy and resell at a profit.

Okay, I just picked up the wheels. For $200 I couldn't pass it up. They are 16 x 7.5J. I do have to run spacers so I ordered some hub centric ones from a friend as well as the proper length lugs. They do say AMG around the outside of the center of the wheels and they are made by Ronal not ATS. Does that matter? Also they have a black center cap which looks like the name plate fell out of it. To me they look like AMG ones but I am not sure. I ordered the AMG ones from Mercedes today for $28 each from Germany. They said they have an unlimited supply if any one cares. If they don't fit I 'll will sell them to any one who needs them. Also does anyone know the center cap hole size. Is it different between the ATS and Ronal wheels?
