these are 16 X 7 et 23 wheels on a W123. However do not try to put anything wider than 205/50-16 on the front. 225/50-16 will catch on the fenderwell lip. You can go as wide as 245/50-16 in the back

these ones are off a 1983 380SEC AMG......or so I was told...just keep the front tires to no wider than 205/50-16 and you will love the extra traction in stopping and turning.
