    Looking for a set of R129 standard wheels.
    Must be period correct for post 1999 cars.
    Would consider period correct staggered AMG wheels at the right money.
    Not too bothered about condition as I can have them refurbed

    I have a set of period correct 18" staggered split rim wheels that I recently had refurbished, from my R129. I was thinking of using them but could be persuaded to sell them. No tyres. Contact me next week when I can take some photos

    I have a set of the Sador 17" alloys that were only fitted on the later R129. They were on my 2000 year model. These have a diamond cut front face, but will need refurbishing.

    Be careful when looking at adverts for Sador wheels as there was a similar wheel for the E class that is also named Sador, but has a different ET and is narrower. Correct ones will have part number A1294010902

    I have a set of 16" original Alamak wheels that came with my car if your interested not sure if they're period correct but they came as standard on my 1994 300SL-24 if that helps.

    They're in good condition overall and I should still have the original wheels bolts for them to?

    Here's a link for the same wheels on alloywheelsdirect:

    PM Sent. Did all R129 Sadors come polished. I have been led to believe that some very late cars had the in silver instead of polished?

    I'm no 129 expert but I believe both models of wheel were options.

    Pretty sure Alhenas are not 129 standard but Sadors were.

    The Alhenas are from the E class but they do look good on 129s (I may be biased!).

    How do I put pics up.
    I am thinking of selling my genuine AMG 19" wheels or doing a deal for R129
    Merc/AMG wheels.

    Ok. I have had a few PMs about these wheels. So to be fair I am going to post pictures here of wheels for OP or others interested.
    I am looking for £200 for the four. Looking on the Bay these seem to be around £150 each when refurbished. I have shown two of the wheels (only just grabbed these shots before it was dark. One of the better and one of the worst. I have also shown a close up of diamond cut face and a photo of wheels on my car when I bought it.

    Sorry as stated I can't send PM's no matter how many times I've asked the Admin to look into this. If you're able to post/courier them, obviously at my cost, I'll take them please. I can send you payment via paypal straight away if so. If it's easier for posting I wouldn't need the tyres. :)

    I haven't had a reply on here or by email either so possibly he's been feeling unwell, there's been a lot of it about. :confused:

    Well he has logged on so a reply should not be too much to ask.
    If he has sold them to someone else then that is fine but at least reply.

    Not knowing how long or whether we would get a reply I bid on these,

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MERCEDES-BENZ-SL-320-ALLOY-WHEELS-/201788391434

    as can clearly be seen these have obviously been refurbished in straight silver powder coat at some time. The number of weights on the wheels is of some concern but I did contact the owner who stated they were not buckled or damaged so perhaps the result of budget tyres having been fitted?

    Those posted by AMck would have been preferable as they have a known history but Sador wheels don't seem to come up very often so I decided to bid on these. I bought the Alhena wheels currently fitted to my car for £150 from ebay as the nearest substitute I could find and they were fine once refurbished so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)
