    What's the full spec of the wheels you're after - rim size/profile, ET, PCD, bolt size? Should be something like 7.5Jx17 ET45, PCD 5x110, 14mm bolts. There are a few sets of wheels for sale on here and t'other side, let alone eBay, plus possibly 204 wheels will fit so you're not just limited to 205 wheels! I suspect 203 wheel would not be suitable as 203's take 12mm bolts (as I discovered the hard way when I swopped my 203 for a 204!!)

    I have the larger AMG calipers and would need the wheels to fit over them. I need to check which spec wheels i would need. Is there a website that can help me understand which fitting is for my car

    I'm not sure, but if you have a C250 sport, the winter tyres I am selling (see thread below at time of posting) may fit - they are for 17" wheels so depends if you have upgraded them. I found that just getting the tyres was handy as most tyre fitters have tyre hotels and, as long as you go back to them to fit the tyres, they arehappy to store them for you. My numbers on the ad if you want to give me a call.

    Are you still looking for a set of wheels? I have an OEM set from my S205 AMG line, 18" Staggered set up with 4 x reasonable Nokian WRA4 tyres (2016 dated), No repairs to the tyres however NSF has feathered on the shoulder but still legal, about 4.5mm tread all round I think. Three of the rims are scratched (OSF is the worst of them) but all wheels are straight and balance up fine, never been refurbished or recut. Included TPMS sensors and centre caps if you are interested. I'm going to be away from home for another few weeks, but I may have some pictures of them on the laptop when I get back to my digs this evening. Let me know if you are interested.

    At 4.5mm of remaining tread those are OK for wet conditions but very marginal for snow - need minimum 4mm for snow/slush. That's why you see a lot of cheap winter tyres on ebay with only 4mm of tread!

    Apologies for raining on your parade, but basically you're offering a set of rims that need new tyres for winter driving.

    Most of Europe minimum tread depth for winter tyres is 3MM.

    A bit of contradiction, the tyres have 4.5mm tread like I said, according to you they are adequate for 1 more season. The thread asked for winter wheels, I have wheels and tyres that don't fit my current car and I'm happy to sell just the rims, centre caps and TPMS sensors and dispose of the tyres if that is what's needed, the tyres are irrelevant to the deal hence why I didn't go into specifics, sizes, extra load etc.

    The wheels are the following part/size:
    Front Part no: A2054011100 - 7.5J x 18 ET44
    Rear Part no: A2054011200 - 8.5J x 18 ET49

    Never heard that one before.
    I had a set of winter tyres that were faultless until they got below 4mm and they were not so good in slush or snow anymore. I doubt anywhere recomends they got changed at 3mm instead of 4mm.
