    of course they do.....after you get the right PCD adaptors to make them fit... without them well yeah no they don't because they aren't the same PCD as the ones used by Vauxhall on the Vectra C.

    I was wondering about the same PCD problem (probably 5x115 or rather 5x120) ...and having a big doubt about a straight fit...

    If you look at where the wheels are positioned you can see rhey are more outwards than the oem wheels would be without spacers... in other words... pcd adaptors have been used... if they had used wobble bolts the wheels would sit more in the wheel wells

    You're probably right...have no argument against it...

    No adapters by the way and no wobble bolts. The Merc wheels have a pcd of 112 so very close to the Vauxhall at 110. They are genuine AMG alloys and far too wide for the Vectra plus the wrong tyre size….

    I just put them on for a laugh.

    The picture is from about 4 / 5 years ago and the alloys are off the white E63 sitting behind my car. Found the picture yesterday and thought I’d share.

    Lol so the bolts were forced in damaging the wheels and those wheels weren't centred in the hub... Nice one

    Yeah not quite….

    I’m going to need to start adding some kind of disclaimer to any silly posts I make.

    DISCLAIMER
    Bolts not fully tightened therefore not damaged. Wheels not damaged. Car not actually driven on the road like this. Fitting Merc wheels? Yes possible, but No not really a good idea.

    AHA so wobble bolts would have done the trick as the PCD is the same as the ones found on the VW/AUDI/SEAT/SKODA cars... those too have 5x112 pcd... but you'll need center bore to go from 57.1 to 65.1 and the offset should be ET35 to have a wheel that is a perfect fit ( VAG wheels off set are mostly ET38) so they'll stick out a bit more and i think the merc ones are ET42 but i could be wrong on that number... but it would explain them sticking out that far.
