Where can I find nice, euro-styled, deep dish wheels on the net? looking at the sites posted in the "Where can I find wheels online..... other than tirerack.com" thread, no one seems to have what I'm looking for. Everything is either to "bling-bling" for me, or they're just not deep dish. Does anyone offer wheels in different backspacings too? Everything seems to be in the 35mm range.

You'll have an easier time looking for Mercedes specific wheels if you want deep dish (you'll need centering rings).
Be aware that the reason Audi/Passat wheels are mostly 7.5in--8.5 and et32--42
is that's what fits. Tons of Merc wheels will look awesome and go up to 9in front and 10in back if you flare/stretch/roll the fenders.
You get:
1. the hot euro look :D
2. a car that either tracks funny or is aligned to eat tires. :sad:
3. to change your front wheel bearings every 6 months.:sad:

been there done that, even had to weld a steering rack so the huge
wheels/tires wouldn't shift it in the urethane mounts. :(

DP Engineering reminds me a lot of Kinesis, Fikse and others... About the same price?
