I really need to try some of my wheels on these cars. I am honestly shocked at how much this high offset wheels seem to be filling those wheel wells.
I'm a fan of following the "+1 or +2 is OK" method, not going real aggressive on the diameter, just widening up the stance, and decreasing sidewall so the bounce isn't as significant as what you get in a 70 profile tire. For that reason, I haven't ventured much outside 16" wheels. So that diameter will likely be my main focus with these w114 cars.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
