The center looks like a stock wheel off a car but I can't remember and the owner may have had the lips added to the rim?

Berz out.

so I tracked down the owner of this thing and asked him about the wheels. He gave me the specs but for some reason he wont tell me what model/brand they are! strange

"sure no problem... the wheel dimensions are 17x8 +0 17x9 +20 but the rears had a 25mm spacer so the rear offsets were actually -5. the fronts were not spaced at all."

There's a guy in Ontario selling a similar set of wheels if you're interested.

Thats what I was referring to lol.


And its not a benz wheel, not in that low an offset. As well MB doesnt stamp their wheels like that, its usually parallel to the spoke and an AMG stamp or right at the end of it.
