And the spacers do add just a bit to the wheelbase in width although this wasnt the reason I got them. And the ride is great and noticably flatter. Same wheel diameter because its a larger wheel but shorter tires, so the fit is perfect. Anyway its not always a failure. Im delighted an now just need to deal with the BMW hubs on my wheels which dont belong on a Merz.
Can you share a photo of your car with these wheels? I have some H&R spacers on my W123 in the rear, but they do not change the bolt pattern. I've always liked BMWs factory wheels. There are so many nice 15-16" options where as with Mercedes there are around 3 and all are very rare and expensive.
