    Hi, I have bought a CLK with a set of these wheels on. The car is for a charity drive, its an 02 plate (W208) I was pricing up new tyres and they would cost £200+. I saw a full set of wheels with 7mm tyres on Ebay for £200, I have bought them and fitted them, and we are now looking to sell these wheels.
    I was told the wheels on the car are worth quite a bit.
    I'm trying to write the advert, but I don't know what these wheels are, someone once told me and I forgot. Does anyone know what they are off, or the name of the wheel.
    They are 18" rims, the Tyres on them are knickered, and are 255/35ZR18 94W XL
    Also What should I be asking for them, they are in 'OK' condition, 2 have a couple of kerb scuffs.
    Thanks in advance

    Do the wheels have anything to indicate what they are on the back? You will need to know the offsets (ET) and width, not just the rim size. They look like aftermarket imitation split rims, would look nice on the right car.

    They look like part torque convert and part turbo internals.

    Nope I quite like them too. From memory they're called Turbines (for an obvious reason)

    Turbine replicas as in sure the proper turbine's has a smaller center and the spoke faces aren't flat. If they would fit my 212 I'd consider these as a second set of alloys

    Yep. Looks like they're called Ace Turbine Alloy wheels. Been a few sets on second hand sites at £375 to £400 a set in good to refurbed condition.

    What model would they have been sold with, or were they only aftermarket?
