Opinions wanted on wheels

Opinions wanted... First of all will the Mercedes Wheels fit? They are 18x8.5 with a 35 offset. The others should fit no problem.

I like the Benz rims (can't say if they will fit or not though) and my second choice would be the roel rims.....

I really want the 5zigen's, but I'm in college and am flipping the entire bill by myself (not taking any money from my parents cuz I don't think that it's their responsibility). So, unless somebody wants to make a donation to a kid who has gotten 6 flat tires in the last month due to wheel corrosion.... What wheels do you like from the listed ones. I need to spend less than $900ish.

I am partial to the F1's...or the Roel's.I like the look of darker wheel's.
I have a set of Axis TC-evo's in gunmetal....check my locker....which I bought from Dayle at motorsport's.They even have a choice of trim ring color's you can put on,which are reflective silver(on mine)which is really cool at night in the headlight's,they have a red trim ring,and a blue trim ring.

They will fit, you just need to grind the bolt holes a little bit and fabricate a ring for the middle of the wheel.
As I have stated before in many occasions, my wheels are Mercedes MAE 17 X 8.5"

Danny, please tell me you had a competent machine shop modify your wheels from the 5x112mm Mercedes BCP to the 5x114.3mm SVX BCP Please.

I had a competent machine shop fabricate the rings, as for the holes, i just installed in my driller this "purple rock head" thingy (sorry i don't know it's name) and I grinded the holes wider until they fitted perfectly. It has been 3 years now and speeds in excess of 100's
