The bolt pattern is 5 x 112mm = 5 holes, 112mm diameter, 14mm lug bolts

The factory wheel size is 7.5 J x 16 H2 ET46 = 7.5" wide, 16" rim diameter, 46mm negative offset

99% sure

I think that offset should be

positive, in the Euro mode of describing things, although there were times long ago when the various _Rod and Custom_ type publications had the opposite terminology (which actually makes more sense to my elderly mind). Otherwise you'd have something of a super huge ricer racer look.

Okay, make it 46mm offset towards the centerline of the car

Its always that remaining 1% that gets you... :-)
Offset is 51mm on this car... same as the S500 for 1995.
Bolt pattern and lug size is correct as posted.
Hope this helps, KenP

Thank all of you for the information - now for the question that I should enclosed in the orginal question- I am looking for an extra set of rims for snow tires- what other cars have the same bolt pattern and offset - new S class ? If the offset is less - the same sized tire will be located furter away from the center of the veicle which could cause rubbing with the fender & 1/4 panel (worst case)- correct ?

My bad. The W140 wheels have an offset of 51mm as KenP said. I looked at a picture of a W220 wheel in my collection when I responded. It's the W220 wheels that have an offset of 46mm. I'm told W220 wheels will fit a W140.

Offset

Have got new W220 wheels with ET 46 on my snow tires. There is no noticeable difference with originals, since 5 mm difference in offset is only 2 % of the width of the tyre.
