W126 rims on W116?

I really like the look of the W126 rims (wheels) and know someone that is getting rid of a set. Will these just swap right over or do I need to do anything to my W116?

Thanks,
300SDude

They'll fit like a glove.

Not only that, the front suspension is 90% the same, 116 has a different lower control arm, the rear is the same.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
