Question W123 280ce Pagoda Trims and lowering.....


I could just do with a bit of wheel and suspension advice.....

I've just bought some 14" chrome trims,

however i now need some steelies, do these have to be Merc steelies to fit over the hub and everything else they've got to fit over, or will most 5x112 steel wheels fit?
My current wheels are

I dont suppose the trims would just go over these.. they're 14".....

I'm also looking at lowering my car, I've seen some 50mm lowering springs by H&R, however if i was to put these on would i have to change my dampers at the same time? I don't want to cut my original springs as if i want to return to standard height, the standard springs are the same price, if not slightly more than lowering springs.

Ideally i would like to use standard dampers, as upgrading dampers seems quite expensive.

If you can help at all, please let me know..

Thanks in advance.....
