18" amg lorinser monoblock II
« on: 14 May 2012, 05:43 PM »
Hello people, 

I am new to this forum, it will take some time to get used to as Im usually on benzworld but this seems to have more info for my w116 450sel. My question is there anyway I can put the wheels mentioned above on my 450sel or w126 300sd.. I know the size is not ideal I only ask cause I can get them for a great price and if there is any way possible i.e. spacers or what ever I would do it. Any info in this regard would be much appreciated? thanks again

Any wheels that fit a W126, W123 or 107 will fit the W116.

What is the offset and width of the rims you want to use? Spacers may get the offset right, between about ET11 and ET30 depending on the width.

ET36 is too high for W116.  Those rims will have been originally intended for W124, 201 etc.

If you want to use them, you will need spacers.  But you must get the proper machined ones with central spigot sleeve so as to maintain the hub-centricity of the wheel/hub assembly.

Gents,

Thats unfortunate as the deal is great but I had my suspicions anyway thanks for the info.  On another note does anyone know where I can find the Chrome window vent shades that I have seen on other 450sels I like and would like to get a set for mine. thanks.. I have surfed online and  can only find em for the trucks.
