    Carlsson CR1/12

    I want to use the Carlsson CR1/12 on my 500E - preferably 18". Perhaps 18x8,5 all around or 18x8,5 up front and 18x9,5 at the back.
    I've seen them sold with various ET - but I would not like the spacers to be too thick.

    Have anyone here used those rims - and can anyone advice me the best rim size, ET and spacer?

    Our member "Sheward" has a set for sale. Posted in for Parts for Sale. I couldn't figure out how to post the link so I posted his speel. You have to go to his add for the pics.

    "Carlsson 1/6 wheels for sale

    Carlsson 1/6 2pc. wheels for sale. 18x9.5 et30 & 18x8.5 et 34 completely rebuilt and refinished, powder coated silver centers with polished lips, with Michelin Pilots in 275/35 (new) and 235/40 (75%) mounted and balanced. Perfect fitment for w124.036 or w129. Obviously looking for a local sale. I could possibly deliver these along a route between Atlanta and Detroit or between Atlanta and New Jersey/northeast in December. More pictures can be provided for serious buyers however they are virtually flawless with about 1600 miles on them.
    A picture of these mounted on my 036 can be seen here https://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=438 post#42

    $2000.

    Re: Carlsson CR1/12

    The sizes you listed are what many owners choose and either will work nicely. 9.5 rears will tend to wear out the inside of your tires without some rear camber correction device. et for an 8.5 wheel should be between 30 and 34. et for a 9.5 wheel should be between 26 and 32 or 34 generally. You will not need spacers if you stay in these specs. Carlsson manufactures many of their wheels in these sizes which are the same as for the W129.

    Terry, posters location and shipping cost would make it more cost effective to source these overseas, but thanks!

    I gotta quit looking at this stuff at 4:00 AM in the morning. I guess I wasn’t paying attention to where little_e was posting from. But at least you were able to answer his questions.

    Hell, put them on a palet on a slow boat to Norway. Actually, from the east coast to Morpay as Arnt calls it is only 7 or 8 days by ship. Probably not much more than shipping to CA.

    Anyway, give me a little ‘e’ for effort.

    Hope ‘Big Mike’ didn’t blow your house down.

    No damage here, we ended up on the weaker West side of the center due to a well timed cool front pushing thru. Very unfortunate for those down where things got bad.

    I have a brand new pair of Carlsson CR1/12's. 18×10 et45 and (1) brand new single Carlsson CR1/12 18×8.5 et55 5×112. These are brand new and NOT reconditioned. If anyone's interested in the pair, single or all 3 please contact me! Buyer pays shipping. I can ship internationally from USA or CANADA. I have a friend that works for a shipping/receiving logistics company and can get the best shipping rates possible. Thx

    I'd rather purchase another single or pair of 18×8.5 or 18×8 to complete my set. Unfortunately the CR1/12's weren't available in North America so they are next to impossible to find. Any leads would be greatly appreciated!
