14' rims to 15' merc rims?
I'm thinking of getting a set of Merc rims (W124)

PCD: 5x112
centre bore: 66.6
BUT
offset: 49 compared to the original 25 offset.

How much difference will this make, will the sliding door open
and will the tyres clear the side of the arches?

et 49 will bring the wheel in more, not out, you need to find merc Et37 rims, they work 100%

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

I looked for original Rhein rims for a year, found a set and paid premium, and right after, as Murphy would have it, three sets of rims came up for sale.

Hang on and get originals. Definitely makes a difference. Frans in Uitenhage might still have a set available.

Forgot to add... and it just looks o so nice

Bought a set of Rheins on Gumtree recently at a bargain. Had them redone and painted. They came out very nice!
