*****Sold & thread closed*****​


Finally looking to sell off my R172 stock AMG 18" rims and stock tires that came with the car. The rims and tires had only 2000 miles before I swapped them out for my current 19"s...

These rims and tires have been sitting in storage for almost 1 year, and are all in great shape (see pictures - but if you need more close-ups, PM me and I will send out). I am located in MA (01876).

Asking $1,000 + shipping (from 01876). Can ship via Greyhound Bus (cheapest) or UPS Ground...

Rims:
AMGs - 18x7.5 ET42 (f); 18x8.5 ET36 (r)
All in excellent shape, no blemish or curb rash anywhere... like new.

Tires:
Bridgestone Potenzas - 225/40/18 (f); 245/35/18 (r)
85-95% threads remaining (car had 1,900 miles in 3+ years of first ownership)

In no particular order

1. For sale threads are not editable by the poster. If you need a change made, please contact a moderator.
2, Thread should include price, pictures, contact info like email address. Try to not post a phone number. If you have less than 15 posts, you won't be able to reply by pm as newbies won't be able to pm the seller either since they also probably have less than the required 15 posts to do so.
3. Why are threads uneditable? In case of a dispute, the seller cannot go back and say something was X when it was Y, because the seller changed it in his favor.

Which model of Potenzas are they?
What is the date code of the tires?

Thanks,
Chris
Bridgestone Potenza S001
280 A A
Made in Poland

No idea of date code. Where would that be on the tire cos I looked and didn't find anything resembling a "date code"....

The date of manufacture is the last four digits of the DOT code. The first two digits are the week of manufacture, and the last two digits are the year. For example, if the last four digits of the DOT code are 0203, that means that the tire was manufactured during the second week of the year 2003.

You should consider keeping that set of rims & tires. You may get very tired of those 19" wheels. It won't happen right away, but over time you'll begin to encounter the problems with big wheels. Then you'll wish you had the 18" back. Another factor is if you decide to sell or trade, the 19" wheels will hurt the car's resale value.

Thanks Jeff.

According to the DOT, the date of manufacture of the Bridgestones is 22-12. Makes sense bcos my car datacard show car delivery date of June 29, 2012, as a MY2013 release.

Thanks for those words of wisdom. I have no plan to ever get rid of my SLK... in the words of a buddy of mine here (Len), they will have to pry the keys off my cold dead fingers....>:D besides, I paid cold hard cash for it so it is mine forever.... And as for the 19s, I love them already and don't see me getting tired of them to go back to stock 18s...., not gonna happen either. So the stock 18s gotta go, to a good home where they will get used...

OK, I wish you luck; however, there is another good reason. If you unfortunately damage one on a pothole, it'd be nice to have a spare set of wheels while you are searching for a replacement or fixing the damage wheel.

I have yet to damage a wheel, but I recently damaged the sidewall of a tire on a pothole. I was surprised, since I traverse the same path everyday always looking for rubbish or pavement damage.

Let the guy do his thing. His SLK represents my dream machine. And you think you've got potholes, wait till you see the state of the UK's roads, think a Third World country & there's no money to fix them.
Those fabulous wheels of his can no doubt be quickly replaced, he may or may not have a space-saver spare & as I have experienced 4 wheels & tyres/tires take up a lot of space.

Who are you? His father?:frown:

He can do anything he wants. I don't care. Also I can't help you live in a 3rd World Country.:grin:

I like to be helpful, but there is always some old grouch hanging around like you who casts a pall where ever he goes.:frown:
