I knew you were! ....ohh....use scratch X by meguiars to clean them because the paint is reallly soft. ..lol...I have a bad wheel bearing that's why i haven't put them on..i've had these rims on the shelf for a while and also had some OZ opera II and AMG hammers that didn't fit...I also have a set of lorinser rs1 wheels that I don't like the look....these look nice tho.... ...did u use hub centric rings??....oh did you have to grind down the rear lugs? and how much....the lugs i have hit the parking brake

I already had aftermarket lugs purchased for my previous wheels, they work fine on these new wheels as well, no clearance issues. These wheels don't have any vibration issues at all and I am running without the hub centric rings, although I am investigating getting a set.

Damn you beat me to post pics... .They'll look different on my 300e because the offsets are different than a 500e....well if you got the ones that have a 67.1 center bore i don't think you would have a problem but i have a bigger center bore and with the hubcentric rings i have these ride smooth....also i do have a set of aftermarket conical lugs but i think their a little too long..what's the size of yours?

My wheels are the same as yours, they are only available in one flavor, 18x8" +35mm offset. I measured the wheel bore and it came 66.675, but my hub is smaller, assuming were talking about the bore which has the wheel bearing dust cap on it. I did not mount the wheels but the tech said the wheels were not hub centric to the MB and it took him a while to get them aligned correctly so he could torque the lugs down

well the bsa 321 comes in more than one flavor and that's with a 73.1 centerbore or 67.1 also the offset is either 35mm or 40mm and 50mm....I got the ones with the 73.1 centerbore because I thought it was going to be easier to buy the correct rings.....i just don't want the wheels to be riding on the lugs and not the hub...also mercedes have a center bore of 66.6mm....here are the specs
