1985 300 CD

I found that Iowa weather takes a toll on Chrome wheels. One year old wheels have corroded. I am looking for polish aluminum 14 " wheels which will fit my car.

Suggest 15" wheels

Stylish 14" wheels are difficult to find. MB 15" wheels fit just fine. Selection of tires is greater and can be sized so that overall diameter is unchanged.

Painted wheels would be the more corrosion resistant than polished, and power coated even better. Polished wheels won't fare any better than chrome, possibly worse.
