Rims for 450 SLC

Trying to upgrade from the standard 14" alloy to a 15" or 16" rim. Would like to stick to a Mercedes rim but dont know what would fit ??The only other rim that I know will fit is the late SL 15" rims but I want to add a little more pizzaz without being to flashy. Can anybody recommend anything ??? Thanks in advance

Hi Bob,

I have the 450 SLC 5.0 and found the 8 hole 16X8 from the 500SL 1990 gives the car a much better proportionate image and keeps the classic looks. You will have to use 5mm spacers to prevent rubbing on the steering balljoints on 225X60X16 tyres and can still use the same lugbolts. Good luck.

Anthony

FRH sales an eight holes replica 8 X 16 with ET24 that is a perfect fit for your car. I have installed this wheel on an W116 with 225/50-16 tire. Good luck.
