Who sells 5x112 wire wheels??

I've got this pic from 20+yrs ago of my 450SEL. It was Grandfathers car back then. He got rid of these wheels because they where hard to keep in tune
I would love to get some like it but can't find anything in that bolt pattern.
Also, what back spacing and offset would I look for if I bumped it up to 17" or 18"? I also like the AMG 5 spoke alloys.

Why does the wheel camber, on both front and back, look so off?

Ha!
Good eye. I took a pic of a pic. So it's a bit distorted. Like I said the original is like 25 yrs old.

Thanks. It would look just as good today with those wheels.
Now I'm sporting the original hub caps.

Those look a lot better than the ones you're trying to get.

The ones you want had a different 'image' then than what they do now (daytons/lowriders).

Naw, I think they look way classy. That's what's great about wheels, you can get the look your after.

Those are the old school Truspokes otherwise known as Tru's.

Truespoke Wire Wheels

Had my old W116 and W123 laced up too.

1980 280E Euro


1975 450SEL


1976 450SE Euro


Tried the Hammer approach on my current,.... did not want


CLK......nah!


W116 is such a hard vehicle to find the appropriate optional wheel for IMO

Hey I like thoes! Are they amg's? Looks like a high offset, do you need spacers for that?
What did they come off of? I've seen some for sale but not sure about fitment.
