Appropriate w221 spare?

hi - I have the 2016 20” AMG10 spoke rims. Can I get any w221 spare (eBay) or do I need AMG?
can I use my existing lugs, or do I need special spare lugs? (I haven’t spotted any listings with lugs of late). Is eBay the best spot, or elsewhere?
some photos have bits of rust on the wheel, any concern? Thanks so much!

u do need shorter lugs, 27-28mm, any 221 spare should fit. Light rust isnt a big issue.

if you have a 63 or 65 and the bigger brake calipers the 221 donut spare will not clear the brakes. if you have a s550 with normal brakes the 221 spare will fit I do not know about the 560.

many thanks - i have the 2016 S550 with AMG wheels (20")
i thought i had seen spares sold in the past with the lugs in a plastic bag kinda attached - though i haven't seen lugs in any of auctions.
just to be extra thick - based on my model think any of W221 19" spares will fit, versus those that say AMG? (different face to them, not sure about offset or lug pattern)
thanks again!

reg 221 spare is fine. the lugs are shorter than what u have now. I went 20" amg reps and i needed the shorter lugs. The spare needs the same shorter lugs.
