Are these the right size for my 94 E500? I might go have a look........ What's a reasonable price for the set of 4 AMG's?

Thanks,

Those are the wrong tire size... they would fit a standard W124, but they're too small for an E500. Also, they don't specify the wheel width/offset, but I strongly suspect they are either four 7.5's, or staggered 7.5 front / 8.5 rear, again too small. The price is kinda high since the wheels are not anything rare or even hard to find, but the almost-new tires (if that is true) are worth a few bucks. If the wheels are clean & straight I'd expect them to sell (without tires) for ~$600 or so.

Wheels that are the proper width & offset for the .036 are a bit harder to locate, and often sell for about twice that. Did you see these wheels (http://www.500espot.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=1310) for sale in CA? Not sure if they're still available though. Those are the low-ET wheels which will nicely fill out the fenders, no spacers required.

I'd skip those particular Craigslist wheels unless you want 'em for a different MB.

Thanks Dave!

I wondered about the width and offset.........kinda why I posted here. I sent the seller an email requesting the rest of the specs. For the right price, maybe I'll consider them for one of my E320's..... (or the E320 cabrio that I don't own yet...)
