Question on W111 14" wheel clearance/fit

Hi, I'm looking at a 1965 W111 220SEb. It's on the original 13" rims. For an additional $1,400 the seller will include a set of 14" Bundts with new tires. Do the 14" Bundts bolt on directly without any fender clearance issues and/or need for spacers?

ouch that price

Take it with the 13"s and keep them.
Tirerack-dot-com has the 185-70 x 13
Bundts $35-50 each x 5
205-70x14 Pep boys $300

I have had 205-70 x 15" Bundts on my 220SEb. fit close but fit with no problems, I had the rear axle rubber locating parts new.
There was less than a finger width between rear wheel well and tire, no rubbing

I have fitted R129 600SL 16X8 chromed flat face alloys with 225/55/16 tires to my 111 coupe and they fit just fine(after some trial and error with the offset)
