I have a 1981 R107 . I want to get a set of steel wheels . They will need to be 14’’ as they will have the colour coded hub caps . Does anyone have a set ? I seem to be struggling to find any . Plenty of Mexican Hat alloys are always for sale .
Probably be quicker for you to ascertain width from 1980 W123 200 data. They are 14'' diameter.Ok can I have size & part numbers please ? Do you have pics ?
On the front of the wheel there will be a part number & a size stamped ie 6jx14. It is stamped between the stud holesProbably be quicker for you to ascertain width from 1980 W123 200 data. They are 14'' diameter.
I can do photos but kinda busy just now so will be a while before I get the chance.
They are currently fitted with studded winter tyres (off road use only) which are probably obscuring any part number (and making measuring the width difficult). They'd need to come off for shipping.
Wheels are scruffy - they've lain around for decades but indoors. Not sure if they would refurb to a standard where they were in sight but behind trims - no problem. I'll provide photos for you to decide.
If you want them - if you cover my costs in getting the tyres removed and organise a courier (I am in NE Scotland (AB55) - some regard it as Highlands) they're yours.
They are the skinniest of W123 wheels I think. I removed them and replaced them with steels from a W126 IIRC (though could have been from a W123 280?).
Thanks - unfortunately as I am a fairly new member I am unable to Pm yetJust remembered - they are the slotted style. The (W126?) replacements were perforated.
If the wheels as fitted originally to a W114 are of use to you - why not PM Charles Morgan and ask what became of the set he removed when he went to 15'' rims?

The wheels I replaced them with were wider - 6J I think. Pretty sure they were from an S-Class. Might be worth looking beyond W123 to W126.Yes 5.5j is too narrow - thanks for your help though
