Thanks, Bob
All have some curbing. Only unpainted available now, just a set of four. I sent an email offer to ship them to you. Sorry for the delay. If you want close up pics, let me know.

I want to keep 8 of these at this point. Painting is so tedious, I think I will want to paint the best four. (Stripping seems less tedious than taping off those stars and circles.)

Yes they will fit an 85 and earlier 107.

I guess you follow the thread on the 280slc then. I bought a welder today.
(It is in great shape mechanically, and I am not emotionally attached to it yet. Did you want to buy it from me slightly improved? Maybe with a welder too? I could probably throw in some road wheel (or penta) replicas in the deal if you'd like.

Edit:
FYI I only have three sets of 8x16 et11 left which generally only fit 1985 and earlier cars, and I am pretty confident none will be sold under $1000.

That info should save some time for potential buyers.

Yes, but a little more poke than desired in the front.

Pssssttt a little trick, take a small paint brush and paint the parts you don't want painted with vaseline.....after you paint the caps....you can just wipe off the parts that aren't suppose to have paint on them.....you can also use wax...

Decided to make another set of bbs rs. Mirror lips. 1" front, 2" back. Barrels are 5.5 and 6.5, so I'm either making 8+8 to use spacers on front which will clear big calipers like 560sl (and back would be stock rs009 8x16 et11 and front offset could range from 37 to 11 depending on what spacer is used).
OR I can make them 7+9 et24 (both front and back et24).

Edit: see next post for pics

I also picked up these 8x16 et11 Momo wheels due to their novelty of being able to fit on a 560sl.

I still have two 7e23, two 8e35, one 8e22, and one 8e11 Lorinser LO. They will need minor refurb.

Not pictured or pushing since I may want to use them myself:
- rial weave 8x16 et11
- silver bbs rs 8x16 et11
- ats AMG gen1 replica Taiwan ROC 8x16 et11
