Amit I've seen same rims on a C-class in Noida too. There's a pic of them posted in one of the early meet threads. Also forgot to mention they are fake's & not geuine McMerc rims.

That car's got a lot of add-ons, like the quad exhausts, W220 (2003-2005/6) rear lights and the turbine wheels. The wheels are obviously not genuine McLaren-Mercedes...cuz I'm pretty sure the dude wouldn't be paying over-the-top, crazy money, for bespoke SLR wheels on his E. Hehe.

However, they could be expensive Lorinsers or some cheap Chinese remake...

They are not original Merc rims. The originals only came in Mercedes McLaren SLR. These are the copies.

The rims are not from the Mclaren Mercedes. They are the Lorinser LM6 design.
