Originally gold rs133 8x16 et21 for the front, but I have anything you'd want for the rear including rs058 10x16 et11, or anything custom made to fit, including more rs133. Price is a factor of what you want and who refinishes them.

I forgot, I have 3/4 of a dream set of Lorinser LO, 8x16 et22 front and 9x16 et10 rear. I just need one more et22 to complete this set.

And the only other thing I can think of that I have to fit a 560sl are these oz 3-piece fittipaldi "futura" style wheels. They are 8.5x17 et20 front and 10x17 et19 rear.

would you have pics of them on a car by any chance? I am lowering the car 1.5 to 2 inches in the front btw and i am trying to go for a pretty wide lip. The car will sit for the most part so Wear and tear on tires shouldnt be an issue.

I don't know a ton about lowered cars, but I don't think it hurts the tire fitment much.

8.5x17 et18 and 10x17 et17 AMG oz 3-piece wheels seem to be the widest wheels people put on 107 model cars. You can search this forum for the tire sizes that rubbed and which did not. Typically, it's the tires that rub. So choosing the right tire size is the key.

I would not sell you a set of wheels that would not be correct for your car.

As for big lips and bbs rs133, they are stock with 1" lips, but you can upsize them to 1.5 for a 8.5x16 et15 wheel, which will be fine with 225 tires on a 560sl (or any 107).

I assume you would not be seeking a square fitment. And I assume you probably want to biggest rears you can get. I believe the rs058 in 10x16 et11 would be exactly what you'd want. I currently have 245/50/16 tires on them and they definitely would require fender rolling to fit. I think that 245/45/16 would be much more likely to fit, or require less fender rolling.

How much for the 1.5 inch lips? How would it ride with 1.5 inch lips in the front and 2 inch lips in the rear. i heard somewhere that it rides pretty bad.
