Weird rims???

Just won these on ebay. Wondering what they might have come off of.



And, think they'll fit my '72 280SE?

Yep, I'm a HoodRida. I saw that bare metal SEL that thing is killer.

So I'm new to the Mercedes, the first three # of the part number will tell me what model right? I haven't yet recieved the wheels so I can't look yet.

I just hope they're not some aftermarket wheel.

Yeah, turns out they are late 80's early 90's aftermarket two-piece wheels. 16x8. Got them for $100. Probably not going to use them.
