Mercedes to BMW wheels!!

Hey guys, I am thinking about buying these or some other old school AMG wheels. Now I will need adaptors but how should I make my search? Mercedes bolt pattern is 5x112, BMW is 5x120. So should it be 5x120 to 5x112 or 5x112 to 5x120. Very confusing.

Depends on what you're adapting. Adapting the wheel will be 5x112 to 5x120 adapting the hub will be 5x120 to 5x112. I don't even know if it's possible without putting a strange offset on your wheels.

Offset and etc is not issue. They will fit perfect with proper adaptors. I have seen them done many times. I just don't want to mess up buying wrong adaptors lol. Thanks

just make sure that where you are buying them they are 5x112 66.6 wheel to 5x120 72.56 hub. i just searched and different sites describe them reversely. you could buy custom adapters from motorsport-tech.com. they came out to around $240.

can't wait to see the alphards on your car! i've wanted to put them on my car, but didn't want to deal with adapters.
