Your ad said '14" mercedes chrome wheels'.
Perhaps you are the Bright Boy and you can't word your ad correctly. In reality,
you have 14" chrome
wheels that FIT a mercedes. You have DAYTON wheels not MERCEDES wheels!!
When the rims are chromed, they are not
original rims or they are original rims
which have been aftermarket chromed/plated.
But maybe it is the polished AMG double-spoke
design, 7,5 J x 17 front and 8,5 J x 17 rear
which are standard with the C32?
As standard the C240 wagon comes in the US
with 7-spoke 7 J x 16 front and rear.
The reason that MB does not offer chrome wheels is that after 5 to 7 years
or less the chrome will begin to rust on the rim edges and your tubeless
tires will start developing slow leaks. Plus the chrome wheels are not
nearly as strong as the original wheels that come with the new car. The OEM
wheels are made of quality alloys...the chrome wheels you see are just steel
knock-offs that have had a chrome job. Never, never trade in your factory
wheels for chrome. You are not only paying for the chrome wheels but you
are giving up your OEM wheels that are worth much more.

I recently saw a new(er) S500 with chrome wheels coming out of a tire
dealership. I could only shake my head at the poor taste.
Recently the spouse of a colleague of mine bought a new SL500 with chrome
wheels. It looks all pimped out.
An MB is supposed to seduce you with its subtlety not jump out at you like a
gangsta-rapper with loud jewelry.
What is the matter with these people who seem to have more money than taste?
I happen to like my chrome MB wheels. Why do you feel so high and
mighty that you must put people down who own them? I have a feeling
you may be confusing what I paid as an option with something else. In
either case why do you act like an asshole? Accept the fact that not
all people have your exquisite taste and stop being a jerk.
