Wow hahaa, thanks for the information Ricky, some of that actually helped me out a lot. I'll take it into account and do a bit more research on it.. Look coming straight to the point, this is basically the look im after on my w126.
Old Skool Tuning: 1983 Mercedes-Benz 560SE with 386HP by Inden Design
Some have most probably seen this car posted a million times, but its just a great looking car. Those wheels he has are original BBS Inden Champions, fronts = 9"x18" and rears = 10"x18" ... These are great, but are not the wheels I would like, as they would definitely empty my pockets completely. However, the wheels I like, look very similar, they are the BBS Le Mans Series, and come in 7" to 11" widths; This is both for the original and replicas.
Subtracting the headlights, and the all black paintjob, I would like these wheels to be put on my car..
This is my w126
Now I have done some dodgy measurements on the wheels and they are 15", I then added on the extra 3" to get the size for the 18"... Now if you check out the wheels on my car, can you see a line about 3 or so inches for the outside of the wheel? Thats the where abouts of where an 18" wheel will be. Using your imaginative skills and pretending the 18" wheels were on the car, would the rest of the tyre be large enough to support the car? Sorry im trying to describe it as best as possible.
For the widths of the wheels I could go 9" in the rear and 8" or 8.5" in the front, its just the look of that black w126 that has left me dazzled.
Sorry if I have gone off tangents, its just I'm really new to this and do not really know where to start finding information on w126 wheels and tyres. Whats the best possible solution I can choose, to achieve a similar look to that black w126 on my w126.
