I bought chrome OEM bolts to get rid of the rusty ones and even those are starting to corrode not even a year later. I would have bought the titanium ones if I had known about them.

No, mine are similar but are hollowed out between the spokes where yours are grey. They are the other typical AMG wheel you'll find on these cars.
