Jesus, Norm....you gotta nose for Pentas.Just spotted these might be of interest to someone
Vintage AMG penta wheels ATS ronal 7400037 16 x 8 e11 5 lug 112 mercedes bmw | eBay
I think the et0 may be perfect. As the wheel width increases the et decreases. 7"=et25, 8"=et11 for our 107s.It,s called the law of sod nobby
I got a few sets of wheels but I,m looking for 2 / 9" x 16" et 11 pentas for the rear of the 450 slc. I have 2/ 9" x 16" et0 but I'm pretty sure they won't fit ideally I want the amg wheels rather than pentas. Has any one out there got 2 spare I could purchase.
Sure looks tight in there fonzi.
Fotografa (who is incredibly knowledgable) says the same thing about 9" being et0 and something like -10 being the offset for 10", wheels, but I am pretty confident that those wider wheels that Amg made are for widebodies. I think the BBS wheel chart also shows some crazy-low-offset (and wide) 15" wheels for the 107, but they are clearly for a widebody (Koenig?) too.You are the "wheelman" I was just guessing.

The r107 rear can easily take a 16x9 Et0 ATS Penta rim
The 16x10 was a different story altogether!
20mm sounds about right for the outside difference from 8" et11 to 9" et0.From the centre cap to the outside rim on 8"et11 amg rim is 40mm which leaves about 5mm between my tire and wheel arch.
From the centre cap to the outside rim on the 9"et0 is 60 mm on that baseis I can't see how they can ever fit without altering the bodywork.Therefore looks like Fonzi is right about being for a wide body proberbly sec. I might try to buy an old tire say 245x16 just to confirm.
