Has anyone had these wheels on an R129? I've searched through and through on this site and have found no one with these wheels on their R129. MB also used this wheel on R230 SL55s.....

My Dad just acquired a 95 SL500 and is looking at these wheels, would they even fit? I'm no means an offset expert (open to being educated :) ), but would like to know if they would fit without spacers or would rub if lowered. He does not want the wheels to look sinked in, but at the same time is not looking for a "stanced" look lol

The specs of the wheels:
8.5JX19, offset 28 Front
9.5JX19, offset 25 Rear

I am by no means an expert on this either but you may find this thread useful:
