I look at those and say, "hmmm..." As I'm seeking cheap wheels for my r129. Today I'm seeking some higher offset chrome rs90 to be able to get them on my 1992 500sl, and high offset wheels with spacers should work. I have six h&r 25mm spacer adapters and could reduce that offset down to 22 which would be pretty good for the r129. But I will always know they are ML wheels and I don't think I want to invest:
~$200+ worth of spacers
- $400 on the wheels
- probably another $150-200 in shipping
- then probably another $500 in tires.
My r129 is CHEAP, and even $400 wheels may end up too expensive for it when I look at the added costs. As soon as I dump the panoramic top, I should still have less than $1000 NET into it if I don't count the 18" wheels I bought for the car and gave to a friend before I even got them home.
Mike, are you build that R129 up for 24hr Lemons or something?
