    Experts -- please help identify

    I am discussing purchase of these rims but do not know who manufactured them. Anyone recognize them? Marked Germany on the rear, along with size (staggered set, 8.5x18 and 10x18, both ET 25), but no manufacturer or symbol. Any issues to be expected with fit? Thanks!

    They look to be replica. If they were real they would have the AMG logo on one of the spokes and they would be made by BBS Germany

    Thanks, Jeff. I agree. I like the look, and at least they are made in Germany, but may go back to searching for a reasonably priced set of AMG monoblocks. No rush, my car is sitting in the garage until Spring.

    Replicas. I had a set of them. They are very nice and a perfect fit for E500E and no worries about 2pc. sealing. They are a few lbs. heavier than the AMGs but less problems and less cost.

    I think the wheel maker's logo is between the 2 bolts just south of the air valve on the left pic. On the outside rather than the inside of the rim, which is more normal on a MB.

    Looks to be the 'Speedline' logo if I'm not mistaken (which is an OE rim supplier to many cars)
