Smile OEM Aluminum Wheels mounted

When i purchased my car last month it had the chrome wheels - Happy to have finally located a nice set of the original OEM aluminum wheels.

I had them mounted last week. I love these aluminum bundt cake/gas burner wheels!

Classic look! Better than the flat faced 15'' IMO.

Somebody should make Bundts in 15'' to get less wobbly handling

Somebody does. Mercedes. They are not cheap.
There were a couple of aftermarket companies making copies and they show up occasionally.

I never was a fan of Bundt wheels - I like my aftermarket wheels better.
I have a mint set of Bundts in the garage with a nice set of Michelin MX4 tire's but date code is 1992.

Maybe sometime later I'll begin to like the Bundts but 14" tires are hard to find.

Great looking car - the Bundts really work on that.

I don't think they were an option. Here is some background on them Classic Mercedes fans, 15-inch versions of the original 14-inch ?bundt? style wheels from 1969-85 are out there. Here?s how to find them? | CLASSIC CARS TODAY ONLINE
