Thanks for the Reply. I stand corrected. The the picture on top, it was obviously taken in the USA. Mercedes at that time tried to improve their Export market to the US, as they also introduced the Fin-tail, a very unpopular Model in Europe All I try to say is that in Europe White Wall Tires, because of their lower speed ratings where not allowed to be driven on the Autobahn.. So any car leaving the Factory had Black Wall Tires installed.
I would suggest original chrome MB rims and black Michelin's, a very sexy combination.
Whatever you do ,take good care of it and don't through the old ones out. Cheers Harald.
