    Question about the barrel/lip widths on 17" OZ/AMG splits

    I have over time acquired two crack free center sections for the 17x10, et17 version of this wheel. I would like to buy barrels and lips needed to assemble them to the original specs.

    Based on my measurements/calculations (which could be a little off) I need 6.75" barrels and 3.25" lips to arrive at an et of 17, but I've only been able to find the OZ barrels/lips in half inch increments.

    So do I need 6.5" barrels and 3.5" lips, or 7" barrels and 3" lips? I know atleast a few of you have split/re-assembled some sets of these...

    Thanks in advance!

    Still looking for this info if anyone can help. The lip can be measured with the wheel assembled as demonstrated in the pic below, courtesy of user "zerolux" on the wheel whores forum:

    Hello Mejnoon,

    I have a set of these wheels myself, stripped and ready for refurbish. The width on the lip & barrel goes in mm and doesn't match with any exact inch dimension. On my wheels is the lip 75 mm and the inner barrel is 180 mm - which is respectively 7,09" and 2,95". So the barrels you need is 3" and 7"

    You find them here:

    The pics of the barrels on their online catalogue has 30 holes while you need 35 holes. The 17" AMG Aero II are well known wheels, but in case you order you better fill in their order form:
