Roger,

I put a set of stock 16 S Class wheels from a 2003 model on my  
1985 300D.  You can find a set of 4 complete with tires on Ebay for  
3-400 dollars depending upon the condition of the tires.  My  
fitment required a set of adapters which I also found on Ebay.  The  
seller's name was something like Ernie's.  Everybody that sees it  
comments on how good it looks.  Some have even asked if it was a  
new car!  It was the best $600.00 I spent in a while.

Without knowing the offset (ET), hard to tell if they will fit or not.
The W126 takes an offset of around 25.

I bought some tires with wheels a few years ago and while the tread
was fine, they were sidewall checked and lasted only about a year
before I had an internal separation. Wouldn't do it again.

Price seems OK for now but the shipping seems awfully high.

 It's about a 3hr drive one way to pick them up.

Going to mount them there and drive 3 hours back with new rims rubbing?

Roger, here's another thought.

Log on to www.tirerack.com and see if they offer that wheel size and
tire size in their upgrade area for the W126.
If yes, it would be a go as they are very good about this sort of thing.

 What makes you think they would rub?
 They sell 18 for W126 models
