they wont fit because the center bore of a benz is bigger

Audi = 57.1
Mercedes = 66.5

Sh!t meant audi lol they were NOT mounted on a MB
if i were you, i would get the complete spec's of the wheels.

diameter, bolt pattern, offset, hub bore... and then your questions can all be answered. without the knowledge of that information its hard to say for certain.

well thats a killer price for authentic LM's if the bore is too small they could be machined out for mercedes fitment.

before REPEATING again what i already said, and if the seller ever responds,
ask him if the were installed on the Audi with a hub centric ring, because if they
were, your chances of them fitting on the Benz, will be greater,
(removing the centric ring shouldn't take more than 5 minutes) also u need to
take in consideration that for most (not all) audis, the LM's offset came at either
ET32, & ET35, (your benz is ET 37)
which require most likely front spacers if installed in a different vehicle
(vw, benz, or ford)

I see guys rocking Mercedes Alphards and Mono's on Audi's and VW's all the time without any adapters or specialty equipment. You shouldn't have to worry about bore size, just offset.
