People are just silly, you could get a brand new set of genuine 15"x 7" bundts for not much more, and they look a damn sight better.
Umm, where from? I up for a set at that price if you can get them.

$448 actually, following is from the newsletter they sent out:

15" Bundt Wheels


Based on the huge demand for the 15" Bundt wheels, we ran out of stock on these very quickly! But rest assured that we restocked just in time for you to get your set and enjoy a late summer drive! Get the authentic 15X7" forged aluminum Bundt wheels for the 107/108/109/113/116/123-series classic Mercedes-Benz models!

You can easily find high quality tires for the 15X7" wheels as they are compatible with standard 205/65VR15 tires. Call our Classic Parts Specialists at 1 866 622 5277 and order your set of Classic Bundt wheels today.

I received that email in November last year, they were advertised a couple of times. Email them.

That would be USD $448- per rim x 4 plus GST plus freight plus other incurred costs isn’t AUD$1500-.
Neither do they have heritage or cred.
If you must banter, fire away, all that matters is I have a happy customer. Job done.

I remember getting bits years ago from the UK - hubcaps and some other bits for my Alfa and going just over the import limit. It wasn't just GST, there was duty and then they took the freight i paid for also, added it all up including their tax and charged gst on the lot, so tax on paying the tax! At $448 US I doubt you would get them here for any less than 850. I know that's not the point of the various discussions, just making the point of what the real cost would be for JG considering bringing some in.

I’m thinking JG’s quip was purely banter.
