Well, I finally tracked down a set of the AMG Silver Arrow rims. Only problem is that the front two are 8X16 and the rear two are 9X16. Anyone know if there's any chance they'll fit on my 300SD (W-116)? I can pick up all four rims which are shod with new BFG tires for $800 versus $2,500 new. I might just pick them up and if they won't work on the SD, I could probably fit them on one of my W-126s. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Aaron

I think the W116 and W126 use the same wheels. The offsets for the front should be between 20 to 25mm, and the rear is probably around 12 to 15 mm for your AMG. The fender lips need to be rolled, if not already, on the front. The W126 front is rolled from the factory. You may need to rolled the rear on either cars. Good luck. Sounds like you've found a bargain.
