Ask YKA. He uses rs133 on the front of his 560sl. He also sent me some TUV suggestions for:
- tires sizes for the 133: 225/50/16
- rear wheels to match: rs009, rs023, rs058, rs078 (I think those where the suggested possible options.)
So yes. These are the bbs rs that are made to fit a 560sl.
225/50/16 tires work on a 107 front ranging from at least et22 down to et11.
Lorinser LO for a 560sl are 8x16 et22
AMG road wheels are 8x16 et11
Some folks with lowered cars mention rubbing on the inside with et22.
Some folks with stock suspension mention rubbing on the front outside spoiler/air-dam side with et11.
In either case, going with a narrower tire would help. But it should not be necessary.
I believe that the most "centered" offset for a 107 is et17-18, based on the fact that people have been able to stuff 8.5x17 et18 front and 10x17 et17 AMG Aero1 wheels on a 107. I am assuming that there is next to NO extra room on either the inside or outside in order to make that size wheel work. That et17-18 also fits nicely in the et22-11 range. The narrower the wheel, the wider the range of offsets that will fit.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
