    What a look that would be, but the offset is wrong so they will stick out of the arch a little.

    Then again you could make a wide arch w124:devil:

    They do look lovely but wouldn't 16"'s look too small on your car?

    If those were fully diamond cut they would look stunning on your saloon.

    Like those - very classic but a bit sharper than the 15 holes.

    You making me want to get a spare set now, I was going to swap my 8.5/18's with my brother who's got a staggered set on his W210 but I might just pick up another set and keep them for summer and use my current ones for winter, once I got them refurbished and got the centres repainted gun metal.

    Do you use your car daily?If so a spare set sounds good so you`ll keep 17s for winter

    It's used on a daily basis now, but I've got 18's on already, just want a staggered set for summer use but when I do they will be fully diamond cut, which I hope won't look too gaudy.

    Sometimes you can have the hub machined back to give more offset......
