Spare wheel/tire size for 1965 W111 Coupe?
That offset might be a little high unless you can verify it works on both front and back wheels. Plus you will need longer lug bolts.
I would think that you'd be more inclined to take a more common 14" wheel as a spare. Bundts are light and nearly free, but will require longer bolts. W114/w115 steel wheels are very cheap. An aluminum steelie from a w123 might be the most desirable option having the lowest weight and also working with steelie lug bolts. Usually they have a nice and small 195 tire on them.
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.
