The spokes on the RS 90 Et 11 are flat at the rim. Your tape measure shows a at the rim curving inward spoke, typical of the same wheel in 22 or higher offset.
I suspect you have a staggered set of front Et 11's, and rears with greater offset.
Nothing wrong with that.

In RS90 Lorinser I have seven 8x16 Et 11's, six 8x16 Et 22's, and four 8x16 Et 34.
First pics is Et 11 (flat spokes), second is Et 22. They are not for sale.

That is unusual. Perhaps a late run of RS90?
On one of the inside spokes should be a long string of numbers?
Pals kodiakj2 and Mapearso both have RS 90 on their W126 SEC's.
I'll ask them to chime in.
Cheers

That is the first set I have seen of rs 90's with an et11. Only Lorinser rs's that I had seen with an et11 were rs80's(flat faced).

Good luck with the sale.

A minor correction...not all curved spoke rs90's were et 11. I had a staggered set of et18 and et 22 with most common rs90's being et 22 or higher used on the w126 and et33 used on other models.

I always seem to run across these threads after the items have sold. Out of curiousity would those have fit my '81 380sl (W107)?

Thanks, I used the wheel/tire calculator and the section called offset scared me away from this size wheel before. with my stocks it said 1.2" offset, and with this size wheel it said 0.4" offset. I do not really understand what this is measuring however. The backspacing works out to be identical.

That was by putting in 14x6.5 ET30 on one side and 16x8 ET11 on the other.

In RS90 Lorinser I have seven 8x16 Et 11's, six 8x16 Et 22's, and four 8x16 Et 34.
First pics is Et 11 (flat spokes), second is Et 22. They are not for sale.
I know a guy local to me that has a set of the curved, and 3 flat faced (all 16"). All had quite large offsets, in the 30+ range. I did some searching and it seems that most "RS90" wheels are curved. I don't know what an "RS80" is. I'd like to know the exact name of the flat faced wheels so I can search for a fourth because I'd like to buy this guy's three if I can find a fourth.

Thanks!
Mike
