i love mercedes steels:D as many of you know...:ILU: always had them on my van.

just picked up another set of 16" x 7j wheels, et37 with near new pirelli p6000 tyresT: straight swap for a pinstriping job:ILU:

these are my current ones... 16" x 7.5j, et 42... painted up to match the van



started off like this new from mercedes...



these are the 'new' ones... got the tyres off today and will start the refurbishment process...



quick clean... not too bad a condition. will get them beadblasted and paint them up.

something a bit different with these though, very labour intensive but will be well worth the effort;)



will update this when i have done some more to them...
