Will 1973 mercedes 280(w114) wheels fit my 1967 280s(w108)?

I need some steel wheels with original hubcaps and found some on a 73 280 w114 chassis car. The lug pattern seems the same but I wonder about the backspace and if they will rub on the caliper? Thanks in advance!! Nel

Yes, they'll fit, and the offset is OK. The center hub opening is ever so slightly smaller on the 280 wheels which makes them a little difficult to get off. Reason I know is I have a 73 280C with custom wheels, so I mounted snow tires on the stock wheels and use them on my 67 250S in the winter. Have used this setup for quite a few years without problems, except taking them off in the spring. Not really a big deal though, IMO

280 wheels are slighty wider I've been told from memory, like half an inch, but they will fit and have the correct offset.
