I was of the understanding that wheel spacers are/were illegal in Germany.I am not sure Al what that part # was for the ET5 offset 17 x 10" rears ?
I do know the part # for the higher offset 8.5" rim that was fitted to the W124 and i think later model R129
12. 85 . 7 MB6
8.5J x 17 H2 E30
Here is a pic of the AMG spacers that were originally used on the standard body W126 rims 8.5" front / 10" rear to push them out on the WB builds
Was there a loophole in the legislation (i.e. manufacturers could use them, but they were illegal in the aftermarket), or was this for outside of Germany only?
