Replicas tend not to have AMG cast into them (problematic if AMG come after them!)

Genuine
But are they for your C350?
Check the ETs and/or check ‘will they fit’ as I think those are off a W222

Did you have more photos with the ETs stamped on them all?

I'm not so sure they will fit. Your rims are 45 and 54mm offset front and rear. Those are 38 so will sit 7mm closer to the wheel arch at the front and a massive 16mm closer to the arch at the rear.

They'll also make the ride terrible.

Hi john,
What is that?

ohn
Offset Iain....LK is ahead of me on the post. He’s right, unfortunately wheels are more complicated than they seem at first!

Thanks for all your advice.

You’re welcome - worth knowing what you have first and what you can interchange to before looking around, that way you’re prepared to jump when you spot something

One thing worth mentioning is that the multispoke genuine AMG wheels are especially prone to cracking.
If you really want that design I would look at aftermarket wheels on eBay with a very similar ET to the ones you currently use.
Look for Front ET 45, Rear ET54. The lower the number from these figures, the closer (in mm) the wheel will be toward the arch.
Any ET bigger will make the wheel closer to the hub/suspension.

If you spot something and aren't sure, get the details here and someone will advise. Don't trust your tyre fitter:D
