Hi guys I figured I'd ask you for help on this. Search Function led to some heads up on resolve but not much. I have a 89' 300E W124 and I am Eying a set of stock 16'' OEM rims from the W140 to put on. I know this much.

The OEM W140 are the 8 hole 1996 ones.

My W124 can't go past 8'' width

Stock W124 size is 195/65/15

With 16'' W140 I need either 255/45/16 or 205/55/16 to keep the speedo happy on the W124

What are the OEM specs on the W140 rims? Are the ET's and Rim width really high? Will I need wheel Spacers and new lugs to keep the Wheel from having a feast on my shocks?


Thank you so much ahead of time.!

Don't forget the offset..
The original 140rims should be around 51mm offset.. That's a lot !!!
Don't know what the 124 have originally..

IT WONT FIT, i have tryied to put OEM 16" 8 holes with 235/65/16 tires on 1990 W124 and rears fitted just ok but fronts coulnt be mounted properly due to shock absorber being in a way.... and it would have to be very thick spacer, and very long lug bolts to make it work. You might want to try wheels from SL they are same look but offset is 35 ,not like W140 where offset is 51 that could probably work ok as thats 1.6 cm difference ...
