    center bore of merc wheels are 66.6mm and audi are 57.1 .. you will need sprigot rings 66.6 to 57.1 red or black i think they come

    these wheels are weak and poor quality, you will be forever getting them welded due to cracks... but hey at worst case scenario you may have to redrill the bolt holes as some merc wheels are smaller but apart from that you should be good to go. obv check size and offsets 1st

    That's the exact same wheels I bought go for my B5 and the same seller.
    Fitted without any issues just spigot rings needed.
    Ran them with 225/40/18 tyres.

    They lasted about a year before smacked a massive pothole which cause them to crack a little bit.

    They are still sat in my back garden awaiting repair or table or something else I've not decided yet.
    Apart from that they lasted fine without any issues, leaks or balancing issues.
    I've done over 10k miles with them on.
    2 week trip round scotland and a week in Le-mans.

    Hi,
    The ones shown in the auction link above are rip off fake wheels, and are not OEM Merc.
    I have had these wheels both 17" and 18" versions on my C43, at one time or the other with no issues. If you fancy a set of these wheels buy OEM.

    mine did that too on reps and genuine CLS wheels made by Ronal... got them welded and happened again but 2 cracks, got them welded and happened again but more and more cracks... had to bin them because they get welding and crack further along till the whole wheel is ruined... country roads for a work commute, Grr

    I don't even think Gens will fit.
    The ET and bolt holes are wrong.
