I'm thinking of buying either a 280SL or 300SL. Will the alloys I've got fitted to my '95 W124 E220 (Polished 8 holes 6.1/2 with 205/60x15) fit the '80s W107

I'm asking as I might be swaping cars and my E220 has brand new polished MB alloys (6.1/2Jx15 ET44)which as the dealer says doesn't affect the trade in values.

The problem with the late 107 is that the frontbrake callipers are so close to the rim. The original "Flush" has a very flat inner design, and many other wheels with correct offset (around 25mm) don't fit. As an example, W126 steel wheels don´t fit the 107 even though they share the same alu-wheels.
