Hello,

These rims are on my friend's E320. They're 19x8.5 and he's asking me if I want them for a very good price. I figure he's going to get something else pretty soon. He doesn't know the offset of the rims yet, but he'll let me known soon too.

So do you think they'll look good on a TL? Should I get them? All of your comments and opinions are valued. :)

I think the are ADT wheels, also Fittipaldi used to make them. They are nice looking, but i am not sure how good they are. Honestly, they are kinda cheap rims, I was gonna get them for my bimmer. But since they were being discontinued and did not want to put inferior wheels on my car, so i opted out. However, personally the design is very nice and i like it a lot. I ended up getting hartge classic which were very durable.

but don't let my reasons steer you away. I am not sure about the off set either.

hmm. I think I do remember him saying that they are Fittipaldi or something like that. they look pretty nice. I'm suspicious that the offset might be too low, but I'll check with him and find out.

he didn't specify the price yet, but I figure it must be within reason.

Well you know how it goes. Some of the wheels do not have patent, so different manuf. have similiar wheels. If it's fittipaldi then look up their web page and call rep to get the down low on the wheels. Like i said aesthetic wise they are NICE. I worry about two things when it comes down to car. The tires and wheels? why cuz ur life rides on it. These are the two things u should not compromise on.

Hey Josh,

Those look good however you have to be very careful because those are 19 X 8.5

Even with correct offset, there's a good chance it will rub big time. Especially you have Comptech drop on your car.

don't think anyone has mentioned it yet, but mercedes has a 5x112mm bolt pattern while our cars have 5x114.3mm. this doesn't mean it is not possible to put them on, but you will have to make the openings slightly bigger on the outside till you achieve a 114.3mm diameter circle. in other words, the openings need to be drilled out.
