    Hi All
    Is there anyway I can find out what the original wheels that were fitted to my 1997 SL320 would have been? It has genuine 16" Mercedes wheels on it at present but I don't think they are original - the spare doesn't match! As I want to change the tyres - it has odd ones on the rear P6000 on offside and Michelin on nearside, I would like to make sure the wheels are correct first. This is the type of wheel that is fitted now.

    Thanks Malcolm. It is a 129063 (assuming that this is the first part of the VIN after the WDB). Looking at your picture for the originals it appears that mine are the ones numbered 29. If so, is the A1294010702 the Mercedes part number or is it B6 6 47 0095?

    Thanks again

    Les

    Malcolm, I've answered my own question it is the B6 number. A little bit of investigation states that these are Monkar wheels 8J x 16ET34 with a 225/55R16 tyre. Anybody got one they don't need that I can buy so my spare matches?
