Same water, different duck Those are 2 or 3 piece wheels not one piece cast like the 15's.

I know Charlie, didn't say it had to be one piece, I was hoping someone with a 126 had them.

I've found a 123 in England that has the 16s.

I'll keep looking for a 126 if no one here has them.

Came across two Otto Fuchs KG brochures. Interesting reading.

They indicate the 15" as a W126 wheel specifically. Someone must still have them.

bundt cake pans i assume

ive been in email contact with this seller, but its been as slow as snail mail

im trying to understand their process to assess the stregth of the wheels, but havent gotten very far, not to say they arent strong

i sure would love a set, 17s staggered, or even non staggered......

Have you thought of having these made in the US? Might be cheaper/higher quality.

Reading the fuchs material, and a search for the Mercedes baroque wheels on Google images brings up pictures of the Bundts..
which led me to this reading material
Classic Mercedes fans, 15-inch versions of the original 14-inch ?bundt? style wheels from 1969-85 are out there. Here?s how to find them? | CLASSIC CARS TODAY ONLINE
