Hello Everyone...im interested in purchasing some rims for my 89 300E. I came across discount tire co. and saw that they sell AMG 5 Star's Replicas 17x8 35mm offset for $157. I know that this has been discussed before, but will i have any problems with these rims??? $157 is an excellent price for these wheels...what do you suggest??Should i go ahead and give them a try or should i stick to 17x7.5 rims ???


Thank you

I am interested in these as well. They have an ad in European Car Magazine with a pic of the rims. Do you think the quality of the rims is less than par, or are AMG's overpriced? There is a huge difference in price between the two manufactures. Love to hear your thoughts.


Thanks

Dean,
As brianw stated in a previous post, the replicas seem to have a superior finish. For $157 ea....i will take the replicas instead of spending more money for the real thing.

brianw... i have one more question for you. When you purchased your rims did they have them in stock , or did they ship them to you.??

Thanks

They had them in stock, but I had them shipped to my home address as I was just passing through town when I saw them.

Where are the pics and is the lip deeper on the 8 inch than the 7.5??? I have 17x7.5 AMG Monoblock bekkers replicas and I love them. I just wish I could get a deeper lip in the rear and keep a 215/17 tire. Thanks, Scott P.S. I think this is the wheel you all are talking about. Looks great!

Scott,
Brian attached a web adress with pics if you want to see them on his car, as well as some of the other posts, and the ad in European Car Mag.

They look great I am going to order them. Just have to decide what size? Any sugestions? 17/8 or 17/7.5?

Thanks again!

There are more pics of the rims under "Wheels and Tires" listed post as "pics of my 300Ce with AMG wheels". They all look great.

Thanks!
