Mercedes W108 / W109 wheels 9J

I never tried a w108/109 but someone came by with a fintail with stacked headlights (the predecessor that looks identical in the front to me), and he turned down the option to buy 7x16 et37 with 205/55/16 tires because they appeared as if the might rub on the outer edges. I pointed out that this circumstance would be unlikely to occur because it required the wheel front to be pointed out and the suspension on that side to be compressed. Normally the tire front would be pointed in when compressing the outside side when taking a turn. Regardless, he turned them down because 205/55/16 on et37 appeared to be too much tire. I think if you put the same on et11 it probably would not have even fit at all, especially in the rear, which certainly didn't have an extra inch on the outside (the difference between et37 and et11).

The red pig / sow car certainly has some big wheel on it though. They look like AMG Pentas but are actually the same wheels that MB put on the c111. I guess that red pig was a little modified though. C111 info:
