Wheel Fitment question

Hello. I am new to the forum.

I have a 1979 280 SE and am looking to get some new original Bundt style wheels for it. I am considering a set that are from a 1976 450sl.

Can someone tell me if they will fit?

RE: Wheel Fitment question

Supposing the 450SL's wheels are original, then yes, they are the same wheel as fitted to W116 280SE sedans.

They should be 6.5Jx14. Tyres are 205/70R14.

I'm not sure what the correct offset should be : ET30 or ET31 I think - maybe someone else can comment.

1974 W116 350SE euro - herbstbeige over black
1976 W116 6.9 euro - Blau Silber over blue
1978 W116 6.9 euro - Rot over black
1980 W116 280SE euro - Silberblau over black
1981 W126 500SEL euro full hydro - Schwarz over black
1982 W126 500SEL euro full hydro - Anthrazitgrau over pergament

Yes, the wheels will definitely fit.
