So i found these retro looking 16" rims in my pops garage. he picked them up a few years ago and was going to put them on the old 450sl.

have you guys ever seen them before? and if so what model have you seen them on? I'm guessing late 80s SEL?

The manufacturer is Intra. made in West Germany. 16x7 et23

Not sure what I'm going to do with them. they're just collecting dust. I'll probably sell them here locally in LA. there's no lug covers but i think it looks kinda cool without them

How much do you think I could get for them? Thanks for your help!

I wonder if those would fit the R107 chassis

Aftermarket and with ET 28 I don't know any MB that they would fit well.
Even original MB wheels sell for pennies since lot of owners switch to 20" wheels, selling old wheels for the price of rubber.

i think they are pretty cool looking and would look nice on the right car. if they fit, i think they'd look neat on a 190e.

they remind me of an 80s version of these wheels.

If they were situated on the other side of the atlantic ocean, I might be interested in them...

All wheels manufactured for MB do have model number molded on them per my knowledge.
Those wheels have 701(655) as the model. Don't recall any MB with this number.
Even Google can't find any info about them.

i just noticed the screenshots you found of that 190e. i think they look perfect on that car. very 80s sporty. nice find! will the offset on my set fit a 190e? maybe i'll put it in the 190e classifieds. or maybe i'll just buy a 190e. i like!






I vote Zender; they also had a similar version named "Turbo".

That hood/grille looks stupid as does the side body cladding. The wheels look good.
The hood is a standard W126 coupe hood minus the MB star. The cladding is factory 1st gen W126 stuff.

BUT, I do find the way they managed to mate a W126 to a W123 wagon very sexy & appealing.

Factory bundcake wheels in the rare 15" size would make it spectacular IMO.

The hood covers the headlights on a '94-'95 facelifted 124

I'm pretty sure the Audi C4 chassis copied this look

It does! But it doesn't overhang to the point where the wipers go underneath the grille and for the 94-95 the headlights are designed for the shape of the hood.

Also, the headlights are not partially blocked by the hood reducing light output, either.

The SEC hood/grille was a popular modification then, even to the W123. To today's standards it looks like a hack job, but back then... I don't know.

Was it a W124 or W123 wagon they mated the W126 to?
