No such thing as "eBay wheels". All brands of wheels are sold on eBay. Any wheel manufacturer or reseller would be smart to utilize eBay to sell their products. SOME after market wheels are cheaply made and possibly unsafe. I've bought many sets of after market wheels and eBay is where I look first. Never had any problem.

Some folks over @ benzworld have bought wheels from finishlinewheel.com and haven't complained. $200- $300 each depending on size and finish for 17-18" wheels.

I'd look on ebay, craigslist and the forum classifieds first. I recently found a set of 17" 5 spoke AMG wheels for $356 shipped from ebay. Deals are out there.
