I have a 83 380sl with the original wheels. Im looking for a more modern wheel like on the 560sl. Do 560sl wheels fit? Are there any wheels off other mercedes models like the 300e or 420sel or 560sel that might fit without spacers? I am trying to stay away from spacers. Anyone selling any wheels? Thanks!!! :)Nel

Re: wheels

I have 560 type wheels (7 x 15 ET25) with 215/60R15 tyres on my '73 350SLC and they fit just fine. I see no reason why they would not fit on your 380SL. The standard 560 tyre was a 205/65 but I found that a 215/60 came even closer in overall diameter to the original 205/70R14. The 215 gives a nice wide stance too and is still a good fit on the 7" rim.

Be aware that similar styled wheels from the 124 and 201 (or later) series will not fit due to offsets of around ET41 to ET49.

Thanks for the reply:) So are..

So are there any other wheels with the 15x7 with 25 offset available on any other cars? Thanks Nelson
