Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Here's a link I put on another post that might be useful:

15-17 Inch Wheels for Mercedes 108-109's

When I put different wheels on my 111 I had to use thin spacers to get just the right offset. I used high quality Hub-centric spacers and converted to studs instead of the bolts. Makes wheel installation much easier espesicially wide wheels.

Had these same w201 et49 wheels on my w111 for years, no adapters or spacers just longer bolts and sledge to inner rear fenders. Later.

My hubs have studs... no bolts, so at this point there is not much I can do. I will take them tomorrow to a recycle yard see if they can take them as partial trade on something else with smaller offset. I don't feel like removing the pressed in studs... too much work.

Modern 17" wheels on a W108

this is a '68 W108. The wheels are from a 2003 SL - 8.5*17 ET35. The fronts require a 15mm spacer to clear the shock absorbers and the rears needed a 10mm spacer to clear an internal body part (made from high strength steel). Studs have been installed on all four corners.
The tires are 235/45r17's. The inner fender edges did not require rolling at this time.
This combination fits perfectly. It is tight, but there nothing rubs anywhere and the tire/wheel combo extends out beautifully.
