Got a steal of a deal on some wheels...
Couldn't pass up the deal, may have to find a set of tires and throw them on one of my W124's.

My parents neighbor goes to a lot of garage sales looking for deals. He found a few sets of rims and they were selling for less than scrap value. He picked up a couple sets and luckily my dad thought I might be interested in one of them. Guy bought them for $45, I offered him $100 sight unseen for a set of "AMG Wheels" as my dad described to me.

Turns out they're 18" BBS AMG Aero II 2-Piece wheels. No cracks that I can tell, might need a little elbow grease to bring them back to their former glory but I can deal with that considering I got these for $100 Big Grin

Ya, upon further investigation, those appear to have quite a bit of reconditioning to bring them to a presentable status. In order to relieve you of this overburdening quandary you now find yourself in and being the good samaritan you expect me to be, I will gladly accept your problem as my own by taking these off your hands and dealing appropriately with this grave issue you find confronting you. Nothing more is expected of you and your reward for taking such bold and noble action will be the frequent witnessing of your prior conundrum as the awe-inspiring results spin right round on one of my luxuriously stunning german chariots. AHHHH, now how amazing would that be? Extremely, ya? Simply forward your address and I shall arrive promptly. 8-D
