Those wheels are the "love them or hate them" style...
I had them on my 200 3 years back ==>

Well, I owe a huge thank you to Daniel O'Dell who met me early on
Saturday morning to swap some parts before his car went to the salvage
yard. I was very glad to be given a chance to buy his beautiful
Speedline wheels, and sent my 15" Areo wheels to the junk yard instead.
If you have never seen these wheels before, that's because they are
very rare. They were only offered one year (2000) as an OEM option for
the semi-rare 4.2 A6. They are Italian made, forged, P/N 4B3 601 025A,
Center Cap P/N 4B3 601 165A, and 8x17 ET35; the same stats as the Bolero
wheels, which were a European option for the V8. I haven't weighed them
yet, but I can't imagine they are any heavier than those porky Avus 17"
I had on there previously. :-) And of course, here are the pics:
I really like the looks of these, and am very pleased that they are 8"
wide vs. the old 7.5" wide wheels. They are also the correct offset for
the car and don't require a spacer like the Avus wheels did, however I
am thinking about putting a small spacer to bling them out a little bit
after I get my finances in order ;-) I will add them up to the wheels
section of my webpage soon. Let me know if you would like to add your
wheels to this page as well and I can do it at the same time. ;-)
