Default Help me pick new wheels....

So you will have to forgive me that this is for the mercedes and not the M, but I value your guys opinions:

Please let me know what your recommendations may be for these couple options:

I like the finish on the AMG reps. I like the style of the TSWs. Which ever you decide don't go too large of a wheel. Looks tacky if its too large. Keep it classy

I doubt it. Got a small crack in one wheel so looking to get something soon. OEM E63 wheels are 18. I have seen them in 19s but those would be reps.

Driving in the city, I wouldn't go for replicas unless they are known good quality wheels, or you'll end up regularly bending them.

Oh ok... I thought the E63 had 19s as an option. What about the CLS63 19s?
