FS Set of four 16" Lorinser rims imported from West Germany

These are a set of LO Lorinser wheels that are located in Westlake Village, California in between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara but can ship anywhere at buyer's expense.
  • Authentic, made in W. Germany. Very lightweight and solid, quality construction.
  • Professionally restored (powder coated - not painted) to the original factory condition and color.
  • Always stored in dry, climate controlled office.
  • Offset (Et): 35mm
  • Bolt pattern: 5mm x 112mm
  • 7.5" x 16"
  • Will fit W126 (500sel, 300se, 300sel, 420sel, 560sel) chassis as well as others (please do your own due diligence). In response to a comment on here, I had these placed on my 1984 500sel at Americas Tire and the tech assured me that they would be a great fit. There is no need for spacers and they come out beautifully to just inside the fender lips. All one will need is longer studs since the stock W126 studs are a little too short. Again, please research.

Asking $2,400.00

I'm not sure, but I think the offset is slightly high for most of the models you mention. I think these are an ideal fit for a w124 or w201 though.

In case anyone is looking to make staggered sets, I've got four wide lip 8x16 et11 (and a 7x16 et23 and an 8x16 et22). 7.5 et35 might fit the models you mention though, and with relatively small spacers would certainly fit too. Possibly a hoot time for someone to make some nice staggered sets.

They are perfect for a w201........as I had a set the same size.

Et11 - w126 or pre 86 R107

Et23/25 86-89 R107 or W126

Not exactly. Only 8x16 et22 are known to work on the front of a 85-89 107 without spacers.

7x16 et23 certainly will NOT bolt on a 86-89 107 without spacers, and with spacers the effective offset would probably be too low.

Almost any LO could be made to fit the front of a 86-89 107 with spacers as long as the effective offset isn't too low. These et35 could be good for this.

And I believe any LO will fit the rear of any 107.

I'll throw in my 2 cents... 16" was a nice big performance size 20 years ago, now it seems that people consider it small. I salvage and sell Mercedes parts on ebay and forums and have passed on cars that had Lorinser and AMG wheels in both 16 and 17 inch sizes because the resale prices I saw on ebay sucked. I personally hate the trend of going to silly-size low profile tires, but what can I say. Given the condition and restoration of your wheels, I think your price is probably a good starting point, but if it turns out to be too high to generate interest don't be to disappointed.

Bottom line is that "performance accessories" can become obsolete over a few years or decades. You might discover that what you have is a nice set of 16" wheels that mate well to cars that are no longer high-dollar cars...

Fonzi, Americas Tire put these on my 1984 500sel and assured me that they would be a perfect fit. All I would need is slightly longer studs because the stock ones are a little too short. I will edit my ad to clear this up.

All Lorinser LO I've owned do take approximately 40mm shank bolts, but they take cone seat, not ball seat like stock MB wheels.

I do not doubt that the wheels would fit an SEL, but I think the offset is more ideal for w201 or w124 and many other later model MB.

Good to know! Thanks for the tip. I'll pass it on to whomever buys them. If I decide to mount them on my 500sel, I'll post some pictures.

Definitely correct for the 124 or 201, I concur with Fonzi who is good with the wheels ! Although, way too expensive in my humble opinion only because I am living proof of those of us who work and pay taxes are carrying the load for our leviathon government and it's moochers. GLWS

FS Set of four 16" Lorinser rims imported from West Germany

If anyone wants to stagger these up, the two wheels on the right/bottom of these pics are recently totally refinished 8x16 et11. I would work with the OP to assure the price per wheel on mine is the same as his, assuming these are of equal value having also just been totally refinished with new powdercoat after blasting and straightening. (My plan was to make a 7x16 et23 + 8x16 et11 set, but my wheel shop found one of the fronts was thin and cracked. When they attempted to weld it and work it, it cracked in a second place being too thin. Scrap metal. So since I already had three 8x16 et11, I picked up the first thing that came along, a chrome et11 that I plan to have chrome stripped keeping my fingers crossed that it will come out without tons if pitting.)

Edit:
And I have 20 40mm shank cone seat lugs in Lorinser packaging.
