Hi
Got a W124 and was wondering if someone can help me with an offset query I have.

The owners manual recommends an offset of ET 41 for 7in wide rims

What offset margin do I get to play with when shopping for some rims? In otherwords, I want to know the greatest margin of width allowable for a standard W124 between the hub mounting surface to the wheel arch and the hub mounting surface to the body



Thanks

Jon

Just reading the history list and all it seems like for standard W124 it seems the main area of concern in picking a set of alloys is one that won't rub on the wheel arches and fender rather than rubbing on the strut, seems like u can have a pretty deep wheel (high ET value) but not one with a fairly low ET one.
