    Does anyone know what max size the standard 8 hole alloys for W124 coupes come in ?

    Sure mine are 15", someone was commenting the other day on a set of 16's, was wondering if they ever went up to a 17?

    I'd love to fill my arches a bit more whilst keeping the original look.

    According to an old accessories catalogue the 8 hole were available as 16x8 but I think 16x7 are much easier to find. The AMG IIs were 17x7.5.

    16" 8 holes is maximum mb made i think. Rial made 18" 8 hole wheels similar to mb - one guy from 500e board have them and looks great.

    The 16" 500E 8-holes won't fit a standard W124.

    500E arches are flared to handle the rims, only 15" 8-holes will work on a standard W124.

    According to my catalogue the 16x7 will fit standard 124s. 16x8 for the 500E or possibly others with the spacer kit.

    Had some on mine and they were fine. Looked ugly so took them off but no other issues.
