Isn't Merkur German for Mercury? If so then liquid metal....mercury....makes sense.

I went thru the "order" process without completeing it last night, and they appear to have wheels for our car. Same brand, different wheels. If you look closely at the pic you can see the hud are of the wheel is swiss cheese, there's more than one bolt pattern there.
