You can try www.aaarims.com for used factory wheels. I think they sell them for about $275.00 each.

hey yal,

the wheels Im refering to can be found on Tjoepie's 500e. I was thinking about the bellos. Can anyone use a fellow members 4 door 300e and do a photo chop job with the bellos on it. The one on the tire rack website doesnt look real enough and ashmans pic is a 2 door.

If ya got a side shot of a 300e, I can photoshop it on later. Just post it and I'll take care of it, or just E-mail me the pic.

Either or.

Alon/Momentum:

That was one of the wheels I was looking at before we bought our C230 and did a wheel musical chairs. I made up a phot when I was still thinking of 16s for the E, if this helps.

Style F w/ 235/45/17



I am pretty sure that is the one you are looking for. Style F in the MB Wheel Catalog is only available for the E-class in 17x8 ET 37. However, there is a copy made by AMG itself available for the SLs now in 17x8.25 E 34. They should fit perfectly fine on your E-class, but I would double check just to be safe anyways. The reason I point this out, is because their is an auction for them on Ebay right now if you are interested, going fairly low priced because I don't think many people have thought about what other vehicles this might fit.

Good Luck.

The rest can be found at TireRack, like the new BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDWS for $121 each. UTOG 400 AA A, All-season, and good handling.

Depending on which way you go, we can offer more help.

thanks john for the pic. So what do you all think of the bellos on a 124? personally Id like to keep the stock 15 inch size so that doesnt leave me with too many options. the 8 hole is a clasisic but starting to get old. Id like to stick with a wheel that keeps the mb look without looking too aftermarket.

I wound up putting my wheel budget into the C230 instead of my 300E. Just for fun, I had the C 230 stock rims put on the E - They look like 8 hole wheels that have been dished. Not too bad, a little racy and different, but sort of traditional. And these 15" wheels are 7" wide, so the 205x15 tires fit better. They are not too expensive either!



Or, the AMG 15" Aero II looks real nice and pretty traditional as well! My first choice if I hadn't put the money into the C230.

Momentum- my assumption is that you have a W124 model and not the 500E/E500.

If so, then 17x8 ET34 is too wide for the fenders, and you will get lots of road-spray onto the fenders & lower panels of the car.

I had 500E 8-hole 16x8 ET34 and 17x8 ET34 wheels on the W124 wagon, and although it fits, just too wide of wheels with that offset.

Best of luck,
:-) neil
