Will these merc wheels fit?

Post by Negativegravity »

Hi, I’m looking at a pair of R15, 6.5j, ET37 steel wheels. My understanding is that they will need spacers to offset this ET. Is this correct and if so, which size spacers would you recommend?

Many thanks

E D I T, planning on sticking 215/75/15 wheels on them

I will have to check (have some fitted) but I think the 6.5x15 et37 fit without spacers. the 7x15 et 37 ones need spacers for sure.
WHY T3's.... because they are just so adictive, and having one just aint enough

8mm spacers on the front

Rear is ok but would look better with at least 8mm spacers

checked earlier, I had it back to front ish.
the ones I have fitted are 7x15 et37 with 10mm spacers.
 
then I got hold of a set of the 6.5x15's

(all Mercedes rims)

on one of my other t3's I have 7x15 Merc rims that are et25 from older SL Mercs. bolt on no problem.  but they are not as easy to find.
