UK R172 Full set of unmarked AMG alloys

Hi all,

Unfortunately my SLK was written off and I've now moved to the dark side and drive an M3. My OEM wheels are taking up space and we're moving house so I need to sell them. Will post pics ASAP however they are totally unmarked as they were diamond cut refurbished right before I replaced them with aftermarket wheels.

Until I can get photos of them exactly (they're all boxed up under a pile of car bits), this is the style they are. They come with both AMG and standard wheel caps.

They're this style and in this condition, I can dig them out and provide exact photos of condition however I can promise you will not be disappointed and will definitely provide plenty of detailed photos to any serious buyers.



Been told they fit C class and R171 also but can't guarantee.

How much are you asking for them, and do you have alternative contact info (such as email), in case an interested member with too few posts to send you a PM wants to contact you?

I'm just after a fair price for a quick sale, these sets seem to go for upwards of £1000 on eBay, and these are mint wheels that have only covered 10,000 miles and been refurbished and diamond cut.

Sensible offers for a quick sale would be great.

If they were in the US, I would likely take them so that I have a few spares in the event that I damaged one of my current wheels.... would be much cheaper the buying a new one or buying the wheel insurance :-)

Will check my emails now.

I've seen them fitted on an R171, but not sure if they needed spacers etc.

If you know the sizes for both wheel, tyres and offsets etc you can do s comparison here.

Online Wheel and Tyre Fitment Calculator. Offset, Tyre Stretch and Speedo Error | Will They Fit

Might need some different wheel bolts too mind you. I think and someone correct me if I'm wrong but aren't 172 55 wheel bolts M14 instead of M12 found on the 171?

Sorry Phil, the rims aren't for me.

After using my friend search, I have discovered Col is correct. I would need to get special M12 bolts with M14 heads. I was hoping the rims would be a straight forward swap.

Hopefully you'll find a 172 owner who needs a set for winter tyres.

hmm I am a little tempted as I was considering getting a set of winter tyres.

Does anyone know if garages can get the old tyres off (and put the new winter tyre on) without damaging the tyre or the alloy as ideally I'd like to keep the summer set as spares for when I inevitably wear out my set?

As long as you don't go to kwikfit you should be fine, the tyre fitters would be liable for any damage anyway and you could quote the value as on a brand new set from Mercedes for mad money to make sure they do it right.



To the rest, I'll get photos up tomorrow, promise. They're all boxed up and behind the sofa and under all my other car bits at the mo.

I'd say since used ones are going for £1200-£1500 on ebay with part-worn tyres, alloy curbing and postage, and these are spotless but don't have tyres.

£850 ono + collection / courier costs. (I know this is a low price, butg I want a quick sale)

That wouldn't even buy you 2 new ones from Merc I don't think! and these haven't covered 10k miles before they were refurbed and diamond cut and then did a couple of hundred miles before being swapped for aftermarkets.

2 on the passenger seat (put some padding down) and remove your spare wheel and floor mat in the boot and they'll fit straight in...
IF you have a flat tyre on the way back... well LOL you will have some options next to you!!

When I had my aftermarket wheels fitted I managed to get all 4 boxes in my SLK to drive down to the tyre fitters.

I think I had one in the boot and one in the footwell with two strapped down on top on the passenger seat. (I'll be providing them in the boxes the old aftermarket wheels came in).

I'll also happily stick all the boxes in a stack and duct tape them up into one big parcel if a buyer wants to courier them. Photos coming tomorrow, promise!

When my dealer replaced all 4 alloys for not much over £400 he quoted list price about £400 per wheel. My guess he was £100 out, i.e.£500.
Live 50miles east of you so tempted as a winter tyre/wheel set up.
How the heck did your lovely car get writ off?

Ah fair enough.

I unfortunately fell asleep at the wheel and hit a lamppost, will post pics of the damage at some point but it was truly screwed.
