There are no spacers on the wheels. They clear fine and never heard a rub. I had another set of Benz wheels but what an ordeal of spacers and long lugs I gave up.
Your car looks good!
My goal with the car is to maintain the stock look as much as possible. Unfortunately the R129 rims require spacers to clear the brake calipers in front.

Thanks, My car should have the hubcaps on 14 in wheels. I gave in and also changed the steering wheel. The rest stock except little things like the Crane ignition to replace points. I have the right radio but bluetooth for speakers on the rear deck. The radio does not connect and works stock in front. A set of 6x9's were in the car already with another radio. These cars are more customized that the rest of the MB's.
