I remember when no one wanted Bundts and everyone was grabbing the 15” “560” wheels.

The 560 style wheels are nice, but I think they look better on a larger car--like a W126. The Bundts on my 74 450SL are polished and look great.

No and no. Bundt's or steel with painted hubcaps.
If it was the very last only surviving one of that model then it MUST be original as per factory gate exit.
Maybe in 100 years it could be 😆
Then someone can spend their money making it original. Now it's just an interesting old car, not a modern tin and plastic something for the brainwashed masses who believe the ad' guys that a new paint color makes it a new edition. 😆😆

Pentas for the win (IMO). Pie pan Gullideckel wheels don’t look right on an SLC IMO. They are an 80’s wheel, and the SLC is a 70’s car. Spikes are for 60’s cars, and those spokes (too many) don’t look period correct for anything but a 90’s Donk IMO.

If I were doing to buy new wheels today, I would get one of the 16" aftermarket variants of the 560SL style 15 hole or the 380SL style Bunts. And there is also the 16" Penta and OZ wheels in both original and replica. Originality is only useful for concourse show cars. You can always save the originals on the shelf.

One more thing
The wires got to go.
