W123 Wheels - Pomidori - 08-15-2014

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.

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.

Besides mustang wheels being ugly... haha
I searched for a long time to find a set of rims I could actually afford and that I liked.

Try summit racing, they have all sorts of wheels

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 (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 Youll have to scroll through pages and pages though.

Here's how to add "ET" to the w123 so it can fit larger et wheels.
