No spacers. ET 23 was a perfect fit. These used to be polished aluminum with chromed stars on the center caps. The refinishers didn't think these would polish well because time had left the surfaces uneven. So we went with standard MB silver paint and they were able to peel the chrome remnants off the stars and put about six hundred coats of gloss black paint on them. I toyed with color matching but didn't think that was right for a W123.
I never go far without a little Big Star
