Got a nice set of 15" Centra rims to-day from pick-your-part.
Soon my 420SEL will wear these Centra rims and new tires.

Cheers.

Sweet! Did you take them off yourself and had them remove the tires or did they have them on display?

The center caps are available a) at Pickapart or b) at Ronal USA at 270 bucks a piece. Seeing that these are used rims, I'd wait for option A to materialize. I see them all the time, but they are usually not in good enough shape for me to bother with them...but I can keep my eyes open down here for you.

Thanks guys.
To answer Kalifornia's question:
I had them remove the tires.

Thanks for your help on the central caps.

welcome to the centra family haha.
so, did you get a set of 4 or 5? heres a pic of what it'll look like w/ caps... i think they suit the w126 perfectly. (the AMG penta's are awesome too!)

just a tip for any of you with actual chrome parts/wheels.. i have a remedy for surface rust that will blow your mind. if you can find the thick bug & tar remover in a can (not a spray can), pour some onto a smooth piece of aluminum foil, and very very lightly rub it on the rust. it will disappear as if it were never there. no scratches, no haze. perfection. just make sure to keep the foil smooth and flat. don't crinckle it.
