WTB: 17 Inch AMG Aero I wheels or OZ 3 Piece wheels for W126
I am interested in buying a set of AMG wheels for my 1989 560 SEL. I just rebuilt the front suspension, and put a Weitec lowering kit (40/30) on with new Bilstein sport shocks. I do not like the look with the stock 16 Inch MB wheels whatsoever though....so I need something period correct to go with the more aggressive rake set up.
Essentially either of these two options would work for me:
OZ 3 Piece AMG
8,5J x 17 ET18 (2X)
10J x 17 ET17 (2X)
AMG Aero I (Hammer)
8 x 17 ET 28 (All 4) or ET 11
(My mechanic buddy in Germany said both offsets work for the w126, depending on how big the tire is (especially in the front), and he s seen both mounted. Actually the lower offset often supposedly comes to rub at the fender, ET 11 that is. Maybe any of you guys has some valuable info on that.....
In the rear I habe no problem anyways, using 10mm spacers,....I am worried about the front as I remember something max like ET25. I do not like to use spacers on the front, so any feedback is appreciated.
The wheels should be in good condition (no cracks/bents), and preferably non chrome, but can refinish if need. With or without tires depending on age/wear and the price incl. shipping.
Located in St. Louis MO....
Any help/offers are appreciated!
