R170 - 320 original 16" alloys UK

Set of original 16" alloys for sale if anyone is interested. No tyres. They were onn the car for the first four years before upgrading to 17".

Obviously UK based therefore, would only be of interest here.

Is it a straight swop to upgrade my R170 wheels to a 17 or 18 inch wheel?

I would not say it is exactly a straight swap in that the wheels you want to change to should be matched for the ET rating. On the R170 the rears are ET38 whilst the fronts are ET30.

Upgrading to a larger wheel diameter also means ensuring the tyre size it altered to match the wheel diameter to match the speedo rating. There are many websites that calculate the tyre size for the wheel you want to fit against that of the original such as tyrecalculator.com
