Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL Spare Tire Sizes

The Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL has used a 5x112mm bolt pattern for all models from 1974 to 1980 along with tire diameters ranging from 25.3" to 25.9" tall. Using a temporary spare tire with a diameter close to the standard tire has many benefits, especially for modern vehicle applications. Tire diameter as well as wheel diameter clearance have been taken into account for the specific Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL years and options. In this case, 125/80R17 and 155/70R17 spare tire sizes are used to avoid vehicle components while closely matching the original tire size diameters.
