Lorinser LM6 vs AMG Aero II's by BBS

Just put a fresh set of wheels and tires on the coupe:

Which goes best with the car? LM6's or Aero II's? Both are 18".

Aero II's look far better IMO. Which reminds me I need to open my box of Aero II's that showed up from a restoration company in Germany--gotta love the interwebs! I actually have an AMG brochure (and tons more) from 1996 that shows basically your car... Yours is missing one little piece though: the AMG bodykit

On second thought, which wheels are wider/ride better/etc? Those are the ones that will look better in the long run

Both sets look really good Stryker. My take is that LM6's modernizes the Coupe and the Aero II's look strong and bit more classic or conservative. Either way that girl looks good in both pairs of shoes

Find a Solution!

Thanks, guys.

The LM6's are bit narrower at 8", while the AMG's are 8.5" wide.

Think the LM6's might look good on a 129-body SL? I think it's the same offset, no?

Yes sir! They look great on the R129's! There's a guy with a sharp 500sl (red over black if memory serves me right) on MBworld and he's running the Lorinser's. He's using 19" though I believe. For you though, stick with the AMG wheels--wider and they look great! The Lorinser's suit the SL's better IMO

definitely the aero II's they look more natural IMO. the lm6's look like slr wheels and the w140 does not pull those wheels off like the slr or the sl.
