Going from memory, W203, W209, R171 maybe a few others still used M12 wheels and bolts up to 2009 or 2010.

Wheels from a 2004-2009 W211 should all be interchangeable, AFAIK. You could always check the part number (and width/offset) stamped on the back side of the wheel. I'm assuming OE MB wheels, btw, not aftermarket.

The wheels in question are from an S class (not sure of the year). Yes I am aware that W211 wheels will work (actually 2003-newer), but I have not found too many 18" wheels from a W211. One guy has several sets from an S class, but he said I might need spacers or adapters for them to work on a W211. Others have said they should work as they are. I just need to know before driving a long distance to purchase a set......Rich

You need to know the offset. If you cannot find the specs., then just lay a board across the inside of the wheel, and measure to the mounting surface on the set you have and the set you are looking to buy. If they are real close, it's good.

I used a set off of a W126 to mount snows for my W210. Same offset.

As noted above, you need to know the offset... AND also the width. The two go together, you cannot just get an offset number. If buying any S-class wheels for a W211, simply ask the seller to take a photo of the back of the wheel where the size/offset is stamped. Or at least have them tell you what the numbers are.

Never, ever, ever accept "...they fit fine on this year/model and my best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend hear from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl that said they'll work great on a W211."

Yes, it's all about the offset. The "ET" number stamped on the inside of the rim signifies how many mm the bolt surface is from the center of the wheel.


My bundts on my 83 had ET30, I found a set of wheels from newer C class that were ET41 that I wanted to put on. I purchased a 12mm spacer (close enough...they don't sell 11mm) and 12mm longer bolts, and it's worked great for 10 years now and 100k miles.

Regardless, you might be able to determine when the car was crashed and repaired by looking at issue dates. The DMV might be able to offer a history as well.
I am a newb, but always wanted an old Mercedes. I am looking at a 1976 W115 and looking to pull the trigger. Current owner says it has a reconstructed title due to the fact when the original owner received the tile it said "mercury" instead of Mercedes. Does this sound even remotely possible?? Wondering if I should even waste my time. Any thoughts would be appreciated

A reconstructed title isn't always a bad thing if the car is actually good.

Do they have proof of the error / correction? Is the title currently in the sellers name? The VIN number determines what a car is so I doubt their story is true or the seller is just repeating what the previous owner told them. There is a mechanism for correcting title errors and I've never seen the title being branded after a correction. Most states should have titling rules on their web site, have a look there for rules.

Most titles have a number that determines how many times the car was titled in that state, see if you can track that down. Also look for a date that shows when the car was originally titled in your state and if it came from another state.

Always have a good mechanic look at the car, nothing beats an in person inspection. Car fax and the like are useless other than a semi accurate mileage trail and are really just a shake down of car lots. RE: If a lot doesn't pay $ 1,500 a month to subscribe , they are hiding something. ( This is the actual cost for a larger lot )

Many older cars get hit with a salvage / reconstructed title for minor damage. I had a customer whose 15 ish year old full size Pontiac got " totaled " by a run away shopping cart. It got hit in a rear quarter between the rear wheel and bumper. Thing is the car still would have passed state safety inspection.

Sometimes titles for older cars get lost / owner can't be located / car is abandoned. Many times getting a reconstructed title is the only way to get a title.
