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.
