I've got an '88 560 SEC currently sporting AMG 16" wheels. Need new tires and am thinking of going w/17 or 18" wheels/tires instead. Is this possible without modifying body of car? Current profile will rub if car fully loaded and I hit a driveway too hard. My other option would be to use the current 16" Aero. Any thoughts on best tire? Car has AMG suspension/tran/dif/engine mods.

18x8 or 8.5 with a 245/40-18 fits a W126 coupe without any rubbing issues if the wheel has the proper offset

Sorry to bring this old post back from the dead, but what offsets are acceptable on a 89 560 SEC? Just purchased one yesterday and need to do some serious wheel shopping! Thanks.

I have a set of 4 17" Chrome Ronal RT wheels and BF Goodrich Traction T/A's P235/45R, ET 35 that will fit the 560 SEC.
Will sell for $ 700 plus ship/ins or pick up in the Cleveland, Ohio area.
Used on my 1983 380 SEC. Will fit other 126 MB's. Currently listed on Ebay with pictures of wheels mounted on the 380 SEC #8056189839
Visit Ronal website to see info on wheels.
Thanks Bob
