Swap early 14 in wheels to later 15 in ?

Has anyone swapped the 14 in wheels on their 230 or 280 for 15 in wheels and does anyone know if the later 15 in wheels from the 190e will fit the earlier models with 14in wheels? They are both 5 lug but I don't know about the offset. I know that the rolling diameter of a 195R60-15 tire is the same as a 185R70-14.

Different offset. You need to find 15" rims from an S-Class or an SL.

You'll need to find low offset wheels, either a few are AMG, Ronal Penta, or 15" Bundts all of which are expensive and hard to find.
