15 inch Bundts should fit the W111 without issue. It wasn't uncommon to have the 14 inch versions fitted on them from 1969-71, and 15 inch bundts should go wherever 14 inch versions will without trouble.

Real 15" bundts are VERY expensive and VERY hard to find. I've only been able to locate aftermarket 14" wheels, and even those have various widths (I believe 6" on standard versions and 6.5" on the 6.3). Who knows what other variations there are!

Barock-style rims

Well, the Barock-style rims are fitting perfektly to the W111-109, the offset is ET 23 for the original Fuchs parts, and 25 for the aftermarket ATS/ARC. You can use 205/65/15 on it with 1.3 % tacho error or 215/65/15 with 1 % less error.
If you want to go for steal wheels youncan use the W126 rims with 15 Caps european first aid ambulances.
