'99 E320T - Need A Smaller Wheel

'99 E320 wagon... accident caused sheet metal to be pushed into left rear wheel well, resulting in no room for existing 16" wheel/tire to turn.

Vehicle needs to be transported for repairs but transportation costs skyrocket if vehicle can't be readily moved.

Any M-B vehicles with 15" wheels that might have the proper offset and bolt directly to this wagon? TIA.

What size is your spare? This is the one time that a "donut" spare would actually be a good thing.

Can you use a prybar to make some room, just enough?

BTW, the existing wheel (factory original 16", # Q 66 47 0092) has an offset (ET) of 41.

Unfortunately, vehicle has a full size spare.

Crow bar won't do... vehicle was T-boned at left rear door and the interferring metal won't budge. Rear quarter panel will have to be replaced.
