seen many Lorinsers of that design, with varying depths of 'lip'.
never known the odel name, but i do know that many of them are...

METRIC! Bizarre tyre sizes, and probably very rare for that reason.

Lorinser wheels

<<Does anyone know what this Lorinser model is? Sizes available? pictures on cars? Where i might find a pair? What should they cost, ballpark? any info is appreciated...>>

The rim looks all chewed to hell. You need to know the offset of your present wheels which must be very close (2mm?) to whatever you change to.

What I think you have is a sincere replica of Lorinser.

I have those exact rims too, and the mechanic in LA thought they were Lorinsers, but they are knock offs, they have no Lorinser script on them, and no where is there any name , grand or place of manufacture ( bought the car 10 years ago from a Benz dealer in Orange County Ca near Disneyland, as a certifired pre owned. It had these rims on it already)

Real Lorinsers from are deep dish and have "Lorinser" script on the center caps

They're not all metric

Here's a pic of the 16x8 Et11 Lorinsers I had polished for my 300SL. Unfortunately they didn't fit due the larger 4pot brakes.

So now they look great on my 420SEL.

Sorry I have no idea what the model number is.

[PS-To bad there is only the three rims availiable]

Holy crap they're nice...
Kinda like a 'remix' of my current rims...





I had previously thought all Lorinsers of that design were Metric - hence their rarity.
My rims are 16x8 too, but ET34. They're from the R129 500SL / W201 Evolution.
