Vintage 1980's Enkei 92 mesh wheels- 16x7 et30

Hi Everyone- I have a set of original enkei 92 wheels made in Japan. I believe they are 16x7. Offset is ET 30. Lips are polished with white centers. The centers were originally gold. The white paint was not applied very well as you can start to see the gold underneath in places. No center caps. They have ok 225/55/16 tires on there. I believe these would be great on a W126/w123 chassis cars.



With a little work you could make return them to look like this:



$500 plus shipping wherever

Preety wheels. Tempting price. You would need at least 20mm spacers to look proper on a 126.

7" et25 and 6.5 et21.5 were two stock wheels for the w126 (in 15"). However, the chunky tires might require a lower offset. I don't know. In any case, the wheels themselves shouldn't require too much spacer.

They'll fit, no problem, but I think they'll look goofy without spacers.

These most likely share the benefit of fitting nearly any Benz. Sure 5mm inward from stock on early low offset cars, but they can also fit a lot of the late 80s-90s cars (and even later?) cars that often take 8x16 et34 wheels. If 8x16 et34 fits, then these will fit (with the right tire selection).

Note: I have no idea if there is caliper space for protruding caliper that are on 560sl cars (all 86-89 r107), and probably r129 cars too, maybe others. Check your front calipers if concerned. Ask the OP for information on the back sides of the wheels.

These wheels would not clear the front brakes on my 95 W124 wagon. The previous owner of the wheels used them on a W126.

They are a great looking vintage wheel that are a bargain compared to BBS RS.

If that the case, then I am pretty sure they won't work on a 560sl or r129 (from wheels).

They should fit a 107, and probably any earlier vintage model, w123, w116, w113, w114/115, w108 etc.
