Has anyone run 19" AMG monoblocks? Any issues, ride, fitment, spacers, crack easily?

Thanks

No idea on a 124, but I am running a set on a 140 at the moment, widths are 8.5" and 9.5" same offset of ET46 for front and rear, so I can't imagine they are going to work without spacers on an 036.

Side by side comparison with an 18" set of monoblocks from a W210 and it becomes obvious that these were designed for a heavier car (this is also true for W140 18" monblocks vs W210 items) so not lightweight either but as far as I know not prone to cracking.

Issues, yes. They are from a W140 so the offset will be wrong, needs spacers, custom lug bolts with R14 ball seat, etc. No cracking issues that I'm aware of.

Width should not be an issue on a 500E, but on a normal 124 it could be a problem...
