very nice restoration you are doing here.
But what came over you to put these horrible
rims on the car????
They belong on a worn out 84 500 SEL but not on
a gorgeous W108.[?][?][?][xx(][xx(][xx(]

Thanks Hans for the comments,
I always loved big shiny rims and when finding these out in california, I quickly fell in love with them. I ride on them only in summer time, and go back to my factory wheels with chrome hub cabs in the fall. No driving at all in the winter.
I dig it, the rims look cool IMHO. Not eveyone digs the gkky looks of the stock steelies.
even though I am not "eveyone" I still "dig" the
"gkky" (whatever that is) look of the factory rims.
IMHO Mercedes created a beautiful car back then
and it should be preserved and not butchered or to
look like a "souped up riceburner".
