1987 Mercedes 420SEL

I am searching for a set of Rims ( really only need one) and the hub.I found this add close to home

( 5 Mercedes Benz OEM alloy rims. 15" x 6.5", 112mm bolt pattern. Taken from 1990 Mercedes 300TE 4matic. Will fit 300E 4matic -and some other MBs.
4 rims in very good condition with centre caps - some minor scuffing and wheel weight marks. 5th rim (for spare - no centre cap) has some scratches around the hub
but im not sure if they will fit ? can anyone help me out and tell me if they will work ??????

or does anyone have a set for sale ?????

Thank you

No, I think 300te wheels have the wrong offset for a 420sel. Look for wheels from either a 126 s class like yours or from a 129 SL like a 500 SL , SL 320, or SL 600...

1985 300TD, Lapisblau/blue Tex. 15" Centras, Alpine 7283,DaLan hitch, loud pipes
1994 S500 Coupe, flat black wrap, salvage beast for track use!

The infidels:
2003 Jaguar XJ Sport V8 black/black
1995 BMW 540i/6 black/tan

1993 500SEL black/black
1986 420SEL blue/navy
1984 380SL ivory/brown
1984 300D blue/navy
1983 280SE blue/grey
1983 300D Manila/palomino
1983 300D Astral/henna
1983 300D Astral/black
1981 300SD (farewell, old friend) Astral/black
1976 300D tan/tobacco

Stick to W126 rims and you won’t have fitment issues, they came in two width’s from the factory.
6.5 and 7 inch width’s for your vintage Mercedes. Look on the inside of the rim before purchasing, read the ET.
Match the needed rim up to what you have on the car now.

The 300TE/W124 rim will not fit for your car, wrong offset, ET49 you need ET21.5.

The R129 wheels might need spacers, are less common and harder to find. They are also 16 inches tall, which would require you to change out the complete set.

If you would have your location listed, local members might be able to help to locate one rim.
