W202 wheels on a W124?

A friend of mine just bought a w124 300D. 1987. His wheels are showing their age, and I have an extra set of wheels from my w202 C280. I believe the w202 8-hole wheels are ET37. Will they work on the w124?

I have the machine polished W202 wheels from my wife's 1998 C230 running on my 87 300E. The offset is different, and they 'stick out' from the hub about an extra 1/2 - 3/4" on each side, but still are within the fender line. (see the web site at http://toy4two.home.mindspring.com/offset.html to determine the exact change in how they fit - I believe the E wheels ar 49 offset, and the C wheels are 36, if I recall. You get a wider track than stock,

I installed them because I was tired of cleaning the 15 hole stock wheels, and she took my wheel budget and bougt 16" C sport rims for her car. They look a lot better than I thought they would, and I am going to keep them on instead of buying new wheels. If your friend is interested in pretty clean stock E wheels, have him contact me.

A pic of the E with the C rims are in my signature link, below. If you need a better pic, I can email one to you.

John-

Thanks for the reply. I dont think I have ever gotten a more direct, dead on the spot, answer to a post on this forum since I can remember. How lucky that you did the same fitment I am inquiring about. I would love it if I could get more photos e-mailed to me!

My email address is teammulholland@aol.com

Those wheels look sharp on the W124! I love the way 8-holes look on the w123, but I prefer the W202 8-holes deeper face. If only theyd fit a w123! I guess my friends w124 300D will be sportin a sharp set of tracks in the near future!

Sorry to revive this 16-year-old post -- and I don't even know if the original posters are still here -- but I am trying to mount 15" AMG wheels (202 400 01 02) from a W202 on my 1995 E420. The stock offset on my E420 is ET49 and the AMG wheels have an ET37 offset. Has anyone else tried this? I am planning on using 12mm spacers. Thanks in advance.

The stock offset on a E420 wheels is not that high. You should be able to bolt on the 15" monoblocks as is assuming there is no issue with the clearance on the brakes.

Thanks. That's the problem -- the inside of the rim is hitting the brake caliper.

From the part number on the wheel, these are W202 wheels on my old Imperial Edition convertible, but they also had spacers.

Nice looking car! I did end up using hubcentric spacers on the fronts (10mm) and I had to get longer lugbolts (from 40mm to 50mm). Without the spacers the wheel rubbed on the brake caliper.

On the rear, I am still experimenting. With the stock 40mm lugbolts there is a clicking noise inside the right rear hub, but only when there is weight on wheels. Using 2.4mm washers between the wheel and hub stops the clicking. If I try the 10mm spacers with the longer 50mm lugbolts I still get the clicking. I plan to have a machine shop take 3mm of thread off the 50mm lugbolts and use the spacers in back too, so it looks more balanced. I think the lugbolts are just long enough to be hitting something inside the hub, like the parking brake mechanism.

There is no rubbing of tires and I'm using 205/60-15. Also, no detriment to the ride and handling qualities with the new wheels.
