W114 & W115 Models 1968 to 1976

<p><span style="font-size: large;"><strong>Mercedes&nbsp;W114 &amp; W115 Models 1968 to 1976</strong></span></p> <p>Treating this range of large saloons and coupes as a single model is probably the easiest way of producing a guide to their tyre fitments. There were an awful lot of models in this range, and some of them have confusingly similar names! Anyway, as a rough guide, the W114 models have 6-cylinders, and the W115 have 4. The number in each model name refers to engine size (some overlap between engine types here), D referes to diesel, C means coupe, and E means fuel injection. There was also a LWB version, with an L suffix. A very tough and stylish saloon, especially after the facelift in 1973. The Coupe versions were the same size as the saloons, just with a lower roof, and a smaller, pillarless interior.</p> <p>230 &amp; 250 (all versions) - Originally fitted with an obsolete&nbsp;6.95-14 crossply, later fitted a 175HR14, 185HR14&nbsp;or 195/70HR14 on wider wheels.</p> <p>250C &amp; 250CE -&nbsp;Originally fitted with an obsolete&nbsp;6.95-14 crossply, later fitted a 175HR14, 185HR14&nbsp;or 195/70HR14 on wider wheels.</p> <p>280 &amp; 280E - Standard fitment was a 185HR14 radial tyre, with the option of a 205/70HR14.</p> <p>280C &amp; 280CE&nbsp;- Standard fitment was a 185HR14 radial tyre, with the option of a 205/70HR14.</p> <p>200, 220, 200D &amp; 220D - The earlier models were originally fitted with an obsolete&nbsp;6.95-14 crossply, later fitted a 175SR14, or 195/70HR14 on a wider wheel.</p> <p></p> <p></p>
