I wanna a wheel

A straight wheel too, one guaranteed to be true. Would also appreciate a link or tip to finding one as well. Part # 1084000002 which is a steel wheel for a 69 ish Benz. Want one restored or good enough. Advice? I have looked quite awhile and all I find is stuff that needs restoring or the part is in Europe and will cost one hundred million dollars to get stateside.
My 69 beater Benz 280SE needs one or two, one is out of round and so is the spare. They look ok, but alas they are subtly bent.

Get a little more specific on your location, and maybe someone can help.

Thank you Shane. West coast. Got it. Shipping the one u have with a tire on it would probably be cost prohibitive.

Thank you T, but one won't ship and the other is advertising parts he doesn't have. By any chance do the old bundts fit the old W111 series like mine? I have a set of them somewhere that were new car take offs when wire wheels were placed on a 380SL.

I think they do and I thought a 280SE was a W108...





If you still want the steelies I'd recommend you contact Lionel at MB Gainesville, he runs the parts dep. He's very helpful to us from the 126 and I've ordered many parts from him.

If it's out there he'll find it.

Is your beater a 1969 280se coupe w111? Not a (much more common and cheaper) sedan?

This is a not-too-difficult junkyard part but no one wants to deal with it because the profit margin is low. I don't pull these wheels when I find them because there isn't money in it and I like the aluminum wheels that look like steel. They are going to need to be painted unless you get the guy in Ohio to ship. I'm surprised you haven't found this on ebay yet...

The links that Fonzi posted are for a slightly later wheel that won't take dog dish hubcaps. A 68 W108 would have a wheel that still would take dog dish hubcaps although would have come with full wheel covers. It really depends on your objective though. If you want ABSOLUTELY CORRECT then go by date code and part number. If you want ABSOLUTELY FUNCTIONALLY CORRECT then go for any 6 x 14 steel wheel (within reason). Wheels that begin with a 114 or 115 part number will probably be 5 1/2" width. Wheels that begin with 123 can be either. Wheels that begin with 108 are almost always 6" width.

I'm not sure who asked if you could put Bundt wheels on a Fintail. My answer (others may not agree) is that you can put Bundt wheels on any old Mercedes that has lug bolts instead of wheel studs. And you need the lug bolts for Bundts, not for steel wheels - length is different. My 63 Fintail has studs, my 65 Fintail has lug bolts.
