Title: Guess the wheel question.
Post by: capri v8 driver on July 10, 2020, 20:40:24 PM
Guess the wheel question.

I got these wheels on my Taunus 20m. They are 16 x 8 and 16 x 9 5x112. They are from Enkei made for Mercedes like the W124 and w126. They are 2 piece wheels with a center nut.

What the order/part number from this wheel? They are not the 92s or Zona wheels. Or does any one have more info about these wheels?

This question is solved.

I was at the Mercedes dealer this morning and 1 of the older mechanics recognized the wheels. They are a custom set deriving from the Enkei EK96 and are extreme rare as these set of wheels were 16x8 and 16x9 with a very low backspacing and where never sold to the general public as they are a limit option for the Mercedes Sec and AMG models in the '80's. .

For the public the EK96 was only sold as 15x7 and 16x8 in very low numbers as these wheels are $$$$. A cheaper option for the same style wheel was the Remotec or BBS wheels.

If you found or have a wheel(s) that unknown maybe this treat could help. Just post a picture of your wheels.
