Now that is a cool W123. How big are the wheels and tires on that Widebody SEC, they have huge lips on them? Do they actually physically change the track, or just lower the car and put a kit on it?

RE: extreme makeover ... benz style

the wheels are
18x10 rears with 285/30ZR18
18x8.5 front with 225/40ZR18

no track change, the rear wheels were custom made with a special offset.

Cool. Could you fit 345 tires under there on appropriate wheels?

RE: extreme makeover ... benz style

That's one nice E320, wow, I had been avoidning the idea of chrome wheels on my white 300E cause I thought it might look bad, but that's one slick set up.

I wish I had more fingers that what I could give it four thumbs up!
