I just think it's a classic look compared to the other wheels.
Oh well this may be more work than its worth
Here's what should make it work:
a) (assuming 25mm spacers are big enough)
- four 25mm H&R 5055665 spacer adapters
- 20 Stellie lug bolts 21mm ball seat 12x1.5 lug bolts
B) find the required spacer size by adding washers to the back of the steelie until the wheel spins freely.
- some other normal spacer (non-adapter) type
- ball seat 12x1.5 lug bolts with shank/shaft length of 21mm + spacer thickness.
I have two 25mm H&R 5055665 and would like to get two more 25mm spacers and play around with this idea a little too. I personally love the idea.
Since you apparently have a 560sl, you don't need to use the H&R 5055665 that are the only spacers I've been able to make fit a 72-85 107. I could use normal spacers on the back, but haven't determined the price of 25mm spacers plus the lug bolt cost. It might just be easier / cheaper to get another pair of H&R 5055665. They are technically adapters that allow you to use the lug bolts that were intended for whatever wheel you are using, and I have the steelie lug bolts already.
Another benefit of getting the spacers is the ability to run other high-offset wheels. Et30 minus 25mm is et5, which is really low, but will probably work fine with a 205/70/14 tire. I could be wrong though. I had a set of CLK lightweight wheels in 7x16 et37 with 205/55/16 tires on them and never got around to trying them with the H&R 5055665 adapters (effective et12), but bet it would have looked really cool. Plus, those wheels are so light they probably would have been good for performance and MPG. Oh well. Some wheels had to go. The guy I sold them to apparently made a $600 profit on them. LOL. Good for him!
If you are afraid of messing with spacers or spending the ~$200 on the adapter/spacer setup (plus the cost of steelies), I guess it's not for you. I personally would like to see someone do it. @VicSkimmr
was close, but I think he fell out of love with his 560sl before he made it happen.
