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.
