W123 Wheels
Hi everyone, I have been looking around for a new set of wheels for my W123. I'm rocking 14" steelies at the moment but as far as aftermarket wheels go, the 5x112 sizes on ebay almost always have a big offset. I notice that people are able to fit all sorts of different wheels on their cars, so maybe there's something I am missing when it comes to fitment.

Cheers

RE: W123 Wheels
Ford Mustang V6 15" alloys were really light and fit my w123 well. I just ran them with slightly longer lug bolts, some people reccomend using wobble bolts. YMMV just a suggestion.

I had no idea mustang wheels would fit. I might be able to pick up a set for cheap since they're more common.

My pics are down, but the 2003? v6 wheels look good. Paint the merc star over the mustang and you're golden.

I don't always roll deep with the shiny shoes, but when I do, I prefer BBS. Stay OE my friends.

X3 BBS RS's OR AMG Pentas (dished ones, not flat)

When properly done with centering rings, wobble bolts would work fine on 5x4.5" wheels on our MB's. I was gonna buy a set of BBS RS's from vrwheels.com (they always have plenty of 16" ones) But happened to find a guy on CL with 5x112 RS's so I snatched those up instead.

I relipped them with 3.5" lips in the front. Yes they fit with a little fender rolling and the right stretched tire. LOL

Theres also never a shortage of wheels for sale on stanceworks.com Youll have to scroll through pages and pages though.
