W123 wheels on a w201
Im just wondering if anyone has ever tried the wheels with hubcaps from a w123 on the 190. Id really like to see what it looks like. Ive done much searching however have had no results. Any input would be appreciated.

have fun with that, most 123s came with 14in steelies the 15 in steelies are rare from what i gather.pensing on the year i know that the 85-93 cars with abs will not be able to use the 14s because of brake clearences. bolt pattern wise itll work. later style w202/w124/w210 steelies would work pretty well.

14" Bundts fit both early and late 190s because the brakes are dinky.

^^^ really? i tries 14 in bundts on a 190 at the yard and it didnt work it wouldnt turn the wheel which was stuck on caliper. its a euro car so it may not have abs that looks like an early 190. bundts also came in 15

It's an interesting look, I'd be inclined to Photoshop it first to make sure it's what you really want. For me it'd be a bit incongruous to have the oh-so-1980s chrome-free 190E riding on the oh-so-1970s chrome-embellished W114/115/116/123 wheels and hubcaps, but each to their own.
I don't know what it's like where you are, but those MB hubcaps are apparently getting hard to find here in good condition.

Those bundits look awesome.
I've been wondering about the steelies with the color matched hubcaps too. There is a set of the hubcaps for sale nearby that I'm debating on getting.
