    The existing rims will have the size and width stamped inside, along with the Type Approval number and possibly the manufacturer's part number.

    Typically it will be something like '6.5J 15', our Discovery wheels are 8J 16.

    I think the Mercedes wheels are 7J 16, haven't needed to check on that.

    Yes if you remove the hub cap or trim it will be stamped near the bolt holes

    I think aluminium die-cast wheels have the number cast in rather than stamped.
