W124 - Return to OEM Gullideckel Rims

Hi everyone,

I have a 1990 W124 230CE 5 sp (grey market car). Prior owner put rims from a W210 riding on 215/55/16 tires. Tires are fairly new, so I'd like to keep them.

I want to return to OEM look Gullideckels, preferably 16".

Is this possible? Say from a W126 or R129?

W210 rims are 16" x 7.5"
R129 rims are 16" x 8"

What size rim will go with these 215/55/16 tires? (kinda feels like I am putting the cart before the horse)

Any input will be greatly, greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

For tire / rim ranges, look at the specification page on the Tire Rack site.

The smaller the aspect ratio, the smaller range of wheel widths a tire can tolerate.
