Wheels

Anybody know the size/bolt pattern of these wheels? Wondering if they would work on my 81 240D

And what they might be worth...

To echo Rocky above, W126 15" wheels. Check the offset, most 126 are ET25 in that style wheel. Not sure what the W123 offset is.

In addition to W126, that style of wheel was also used on W201 in both 14" & 15", and on W124 in 15", with ETs in the 45-49 range. The diameter, width, and ET are found on the inside of the wheel.

I put 8-holers on my W123. No spacers, no problems.

there are more than one wheel that looks pretty much alike like that one. Some came on the 190 and some on 126. I put a set on my 126 and needed spacers and longer lug bolts on front to clear calipers. The lugs are not interchangible with standard 123 wheels.

You can find the factory combinations of wheel size and offset in the FSMs for each vehicle type - see chapter 40-102 for example
