Original W124 wheel options

The stock eight-holes don't really do it for me, but I want to replace Ilse's wheels with something that will still look correct on a W124.

Does anyone have a brochure, list, website, etc. that shows all the wheels Mercedes offered for the W124 chassis, or at least during the 124's production run? I know about the ten-hole, the eight-hole, the AMG five-spokes in all their forms, but I occasionally see other wheels that look to be cut from the same cloth.

EDIT: Forget my desire to receive information, I'd rather give back. I'd like to make an online reference available on these wheels, with images and complete specs. There's nothing like that available AFAIK, and I looooove making info graphics.


If I could get a good, square-on, high-res image of every wheel made available for the W124, along with complete info for each (diameter, width, offset, weight, single/two/three-piece construction), I can get this show on the road. I'd say big-name aftermarket wheels should be included (AMG, Brabus, etc.), but limit it to that. We don't need EVERY wheel that fits, just the ones that could be considered "original" or "authentic".

Gentlemen, start your cameras.

You forgot about the 15 hole alloys plus the plain old steel wheels with plastic covers. They came in either 15 or 16 inch varieties. Don't know about 10 hole wheels.

The wheels you list would have been standard from the factory. All other wheels would be after market - AMG, Brabus etc etc etc.

I have 15 inch W210 alloys on my car.

Nice find, daddi. Interesting to see equipment not offered in the North American market (5-hole, 6-hole, maybe others too).
