FS 17" Staggered Borbet Type A 8.5x10 + Flat caps and tires!

SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD!

Hi there,

I have a nice minty set of Borbet Type A's that I bought off of this site a few months back that I can't use on my car They're just too wide for me.They are 5x112 original bolt pattern.Pretty darn rare.I believe they only offered this bolt parttern and size between 1990 and 1993, but I could be wrong.I searched for about a month to find them.I was going to run them on my volkswagen but me being a noob,I didn't realize the offset was just BONKERS for my car.I don't really want to get into rolling my fenders....I bought them from a very cool chap on here by the name of BADwayz(great seller).They were a little rough around the edges when I got them but I cleaned them up real nice and finished them in white.They are straight and true.I had them on without weights and ran them at highway speeds with any vibration.I was very impressed.Very good quality German aluminum wheel and so very stylish.I really wish I could run them.I almost just want to buy a Benz beater to run them myself.LOL! I'm not kidding...

BADwayz has told me they are a perfect fit for w126.Also r107 and r129's.

Here are the specs:

Wheels,

Borbet type A w/ flat caps
17" 5x112
8.5j et13
10j et20

Tires,

Federal SuperSteel 70% tread all round.Fronts are 205 45 17 and rears are 235 45 17

I know I'm a noob to this site and benz's in general, but I assure you that I am an honest seller/buyer that just wants these to go to a good home and be appreciated for such a cool wheel that they are.I've put a lot of love into these over the past few months. I'm asking $1500 Canadian for the whole thing.Wheels, tires, caps.Freshly polished and painted.I believe this is a fair price.I'm into them more than this not including the shipping and border fees I shelled out.I am located in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

Cheers,
Pete

PICS!!! The last three are for your personal enjoyment and to see how absolutely bonkers they are on my car.I was in denial for about a day or two looking for fender flares online....so go ahead and laugh it up

You can buy a 107 or a 126 for about the same price as the wheels. I don't think there's much deeper than the lips on the borbets. Join in on the MB ownership. You won't regret it... but if you don't GLWS. They are some great wheels, but rarely sought after. So be patient. Buy a Benz to ride them in the mean time.
