18" wheels for 1994 E500 what are my choices?

A fellow E500 guy fell through in selling me his 18" AMGs. Anyone have any suggestions on what other styles in 18's are available for the E500? Offset???

Hey E500man- yes let's definitely get together....weather seems to have turned a bit chilly on us recently and I definitely have committments for Sunday...this Sat may be a bust too as I've promised my better half to do wine country and an overnighter...

next weekend? 10/27th or 10/28th is wide open though...

have a great day

PS- I like the look of Mike Curcio's AMG's...maybe you would do these in 18's for yours?

Try these off ebay, I know some people don't have trust in dealers, but I've always had good luck with actual people, call it good faith and high ratigns :p.

They would fit especially since the E500/500E and r129 share similar wheel offsets. They have the nicest AMG look, are 2-piece, and we all know how expensive those are, and come in a staggered setup.

Good Luck.

Thanks Chiragp for the heads up. I'm going over to tire rackcom to see how these rims look on the virtual 500E car they got there. Actually I'd prefer a set with 6 to 7 spokes...

Some very aggresive looking twin 5-spoke wheels. Thouhgt I would throw them at ya. They look great to with the Mercedes Center cap.

If you like the traditional AMG monoblock look, then you can look at these as well.

Their are some Carlsson 1/8 in a Staggered Setup below:

Here are another pair of AMG 5-spoke Star SL 129 type wheels:

Another nice looking setup was the Moda R6. I know someone did a setup with 18x8s up front, and 19x9 in the rear. Great looking setup. Really made it look like the thing was powerful with the bigger wheels in the back. Always my preference of making something look powerful

E- you should consider taking the E500 down to S Cal, Willow Springs 11/25 and meet up with S Cal Mercedesshop 500e/e500 to carvan to the Tuner GP Show/ Shootout.
