BBS RS 010 Fittment on W123


I've no experience figuring out what wheels will fit with out actually mounting them.

There are a set of BBS RS wheels for sale about an hour drive from me. They're stamped 7J x 15 H2 ET38. Anyone running offset that high on a w123? From all the posts I've browsed looks like these wont fit.

I'd be willing to run a 10mm spacer but would think I shouldn't run much more than that.

Anyone have some experience with something like this?

Old Blue - 83 240D manual trans, OM617, 2.88 diff.
Green Machine - 2001 Europa G500
87 300SDL Bought on Peachparts. Low-ish miles..?

Family Truckster - 2012 VW Touareg TDI

Patchouli Wagon - 2004 E500 - SOLD
333k mile 97 BMW 750il V12. - SOLD
The Californian - 85 300TD - SOLD
Daily Super Sedan - 03 Audi S8 -SOLD

Take a look at the link below - it's a great guide that will help you figure out the fitment and spacing.

I have a set of BBS 16x8 et11 on my 123. Perfect fit in rear. On the front, a slight poke. But I like it.
Sometimes folks run a staggered et11 and et23 to prevent that slight poke.

Now I've also ran a set of 15x6.5 et37 8 hole Mercedes wheels with cheap 10mm spacers. Not too bad, but I do think it was pretty wide and should be run with hubcentric type spacers. Definitely needed longer bolts.

I would imagine with the wider rim, 7 vs 6.5, and the et38, you'll need a wider than 10mm spacer to clear the front tie rod.
