if you were wondering ... 8x16 gen1 AMGs & W116

from the right | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I'll later include pix with the center caps

Most impressed I am with the beefy Michelin Pilots + H&R lowering springs' ride quality.

Now all I need is Teemu from Black Smoke Racing and a winning lottery ticket

That car looks good; on the older models I like the silver Pentas, especially on a silver car, but the stance is great.

agreed. the 16 inch 225s front and 245s rear are as big as you can get without rubbing on the vintage generation 1 AMG wheels.

black works for me = silver gets too dirty.

Machined rims and silver center cops would really look great on that. Love those wheels.

Beautiful! (imho... )

I found this thread while looking for offsets for rims on a W116. I've found a lovely pale blue 280SE, and have a set of 15x7 Pentas on their way here. Got to be worth a try.

I'd prefer a 450, or a 6.9, but such things can be sorted later if the car is 'right' to begin with.
