Even that would be more than I'd be willing to pay.that webshop with the $2750 wheels was only for the pics on this webshop the price for 16 Inch is around a $1000,- a set and 15 Inch is around $800,- a set http://greggearhead.com/store/p20/Mercedes_%27Bundt%27_Replica_Wheels_15x7.html

At first, it looked a bit disproportionate, but after a minute or so my eye got used to it and really liked the look. Enjoy the photos of a really unique and beautiful W116

The Maxilites with the polished lips look amazing: https://shop-us.maxilite-wheels.com/Barock-Style-7x16_1Anyone know if the ET11 offset is likely to be a problem, especially with a 7in wheel? My research suggests the OE 6in wide steel wheels were closer to ET25.
Quote from: s class on 26 August 2010, 08:57 AMThe original 14" bundts have an offset of 30. You don't want to go to a higher offset than this (which would move the wheels inwards). As the wheel size increases, it seems necessary to reduce the offset slightly to avoid clearance problems on the inner side. For example, 7Jx15 bundts are et25 for genuine MB, or et23 for aftermarket. 8Jx16 pentas are et11. I would surmise that an 8Jx17et11 wheel would fit similarly to an 8Jx16et11 wheel. Whilst I haven't directly answered your question, the above may help to give you something to go on.
