He means the bolt pattern is different , fitment wise
They will likely fit but will not bolt on due to needing adapters and also if I remember correct Mercedes uses Lug studs and not regular
Nuts

hmmm that sux these are cheap prolly spend 100 on adapters but if they use the lug studs (which i assume are the whole stud is bolted from the wheel into the hub right?) I guess its too much of a hassle.

Mercedes bolt pattern is 5x112

Lexus is 5x114

Adapters are going to run $100-150 a pair (x2) = $300.

I use to own a w210 Mercedes before my SC. After reviewing your photo, this offset is probably mid to high +30's. An adapter is probably 20mm (3/4") inch.

Correct, Mercedes uses a 3.5" long (roughly) stud that goes into the hub... vs our Toyota/Lexus which has studs coming from our hub and we use a traditional lug nut.

Your cheap wheels just became very expensive.

you can fit 5x112's on 5x114.3's without adapters but you need to get wobble lug nuts.

They are much cheaper then adapters and wont affect fitment at all.

I thought wobbles only came in a bolt and not a nut....

yes they also sell wobble lugnuts, the head on them has a few mm's of play.

but the bore on the benz wheels will be different then ours (60.1) i think ,,so youll also need hubcentric rings,

if i were you id just buy a set that fits properly.

Wouldnt put those on, something that fits correctly is the best way to go in my opinion period.

Not really a fan of the wheels even if they did fit. Toyota (Lexus) and Nissan (Infinity) have better looking OEM wheels that fit right of the bat.

motorsport tech makes the smallest adapter size which is 19mm. If you are going to be on stock suspension its not even worth it. pick up a set of g35 or 350z wheels

You could easily have them re drilled. But not sure how good those would look on an SC

It seems like everybody has answered your question for the most part, but for future reference if you find some stock rims that you think might look good this site has the lug pattern and center bore for most vehicles (except Mercedes coincidentally lol).
