    Which AMG three piece wheel is this?

    I bought this AMG three piece wheel some years ago as a spare for my
    500SEC. When it arrived from Germany I discovered that the offset wasn't the usual 17, but 5. Does anyone know which car this 10x17 et5 wheel was built for?

    AMG by OZ, highly thought after, highly crackable
    looks great in staggered fitment on 500e 036 and other w124s

    Yes, I'm aware of all that. But this wheel has the unusual et (offset, in German Einpresstiefe) of 5, not 17 which is common for the 10 inch wheels used on W124 036, R129 and W126.

    No, never did. Sold the SEC and bought a 500E instead. It might have fitted in the wheel well of the SEC, but I think it would be to aggresive for the 036.

    The et5 is the rear wheel of the w126 widebody.
    Very rare, not easy to find.

    Yep, that wheel is definitely for a C/W126, with that offset.

    Not for the "usual" C/W126, though. Any input regarding value of this wheel appreciated as I'm considering selling it.

    Re: Which AMG three piece wheel is this?

    The 17 x 10 ET5 was made for the C126 widebody to retain the 10inch width rear rim - but push the rim outwards by 12mm due to the flared panels
    That offset is extremely rare these days to find as there were limited numbers made.
    The only time i have ever seen them come up for sale (always as a pair) is in Japan and they always went for top $ unless they were stuffed.

    The solution these days for the widebody which has more appeal is to use a 17 x 10 et17 standard rear and swap in wider lips from 3inch to either 4" or 4.5" or 5" to create more depth in the lip.
    That is exactly what i have done with mine and have created for the rear 17 x 11" with 4inch lip and on the front swapped in wider lips to create 17 x 9.5"

    Note back in the day AMG also used standard spec rims and just created their own AMG branded spacers for both front & rear (as per the pic below)

    As to selling one rim now it would still command top dollar as a spare for existing AMG WB owners wearing these rims
    I sell a standard split width set 17x 8.5" et18 front / 17 x 8.5" ET17 rear for AUD$3,000 but sellers in Europe list them in Euro for a lot more than that.

    Not easy as for the price of one single widebody wheel.
    for instance you have this one
    http://www.ebay.de/itm/Orig-Mercedes...0AAOSwbYZXdssS
    Which i would say has a fair pricing. This amg penta is the front wheel of the w126 widebody.
    The owner is trying to sell it in the last 2 (or 3) month on ebay, still for sale.

    Demand is limited.

    Unfortunately that Penta rim is buckled (out of round which is why he is selling it) and he does not ship out of Europe and he only takes cash - which limits his captive market

    Re: Which AMG three piece wheel is this?

    HOFF and mercepor, thank you very much for your inputs. Some additional info about the wheel: It doesn't look like there has been a tyre mounted on it at all. The only blemish I can see is some light corrosion on the outer lip probably caused by inproper storage over the years. From what I know the outer lip is made from untreated aluminium. The production year of the wheel is -88. Based on the gathered information I was thinking of a price in the US$500-600 region for the wheel. What do you guys think of that? I do realize that the market is limited, but then again the wheel is pretty rare.

    Well, the Widebody AMG wheel sold on Ebay for $800, which was more than I expected. That amount on my Paypal account allows me (at least almost ��) to buy these https://www.kunzmann.de/shop/de/reif...rad-silber.htm Nice, new, original 500E wheels..

    Has anyone ran two sets of fronts (17x8.5 et18) on both front and rear of 500e? Have this option and wanted to see how that setup looks if anyone has a photo?
