Hi Ron:

I may be able to help you out if you want a set of the 14x6.5 "bundt cake" wheels. They came off a 300D but I think the same thing went on the 240D in that time frame.

Let me look for the wheels this weekend and post a few pictures.

I'm wanting to keep the car looking stock, so I don't think I'll want the Bundt-cakes. Unless I can't find any of the stock ones, of course.

Thanks,

Oh, you've got the hubcab style. Those are steel I think. The Bundts are alloy. I wasn't sure if the 240D ever had alloys as an option. Were you looking for a set of all four or just two in the back? It would look funny to have to different wheels on the back.

Good luck - the wheels should be out there.

stock wheels

I have a set of steel wheels that I just replaced with the alloys. I need to have the tires removed off two of them but would get the other two removed as well if you are interested. The wheels are off a 77 300d (123 Chassis).

Wheels

I have a set of steel wheels off my daughter's 240D and also have two sets of hub caps, one in butter yellow and the other in dark blue. How's $50.00 for the wheels and either of the two sets of caps?

Just an addendum about M-B 14" rims:

They come in a lot of varied sizes and offsets which look almost identical, so be sure that you get a matched set which is appropriate for your car when you buy extra rims: for example, the aluminum "Bundt Cake" rims come in 5 1/2" ET30 (some of the 4 cylinder cars only), 6" ET30 (OE on many W123 cars -- 6 1/2" never were, as far as I can establish with considerable research) and 6 1/2" ET30 (from the V8 SLs and SELS of the '70s), and 6 1/2" ET25 or 23 (from the SEL and SL cars of the early '80s). I suspect that all the same size variations were available in steel rims, too. The biggest problem might be the 6 1/2" ET 30, which will usually give suspension clearance problems on W123 cars unless you add 6 mm spacers (which is what I'm running right now on my '85 300TD -- because I like it like that), but I have also heard of people purchasing a set with mixed offets or even widths without noticing and then having problems with the steering pulling to one side or another when mismatched rims were put on the front.

And then there are the problems of getting the correct length and contour lug bolts for various wheel designs so that you don't ruin your parking brake mechanism or lose a wheel.

Are the rims marked or inscribed so you know what you're getting? If so, where is the info on the wheel?

Thanks,

On the alloys, size and offset information (ET number) are on the inside of the wheel where the brake dust collects. Typically on the flat part of the inside which connects the hub area to the tire area.

As mentioned, MB tended to use the same style wheel across a wide variety of sizes. The ET number is extremely important.

After about 1980, the Germans required it all to be marked

but on the "Bundt Cake" rims all the dimensional data is forged into the BACK of several of the webs between the spokes, so unless you're really clever with a tiny mirror, you have to remove the wheel and brush off a whole lot of asbestos dust to read it. Before 1980 or so, you will find the width there, the M-B part number, and a production date on the mounting face, but not the offset (ET) number, so you have to measure or find someone with a M-B parts book who's willing to take the time to correlate the part number to the size information on Merc. spec. books. Steel rims are probably stamped in the area between the lug bolt holes.
