Mercedes - Mercedes 300SE W112

The W112 was introduced in 1961as the Mercedes 300SE and utilised the earlier six cylinder 3 litre fuel injected  "Adenauer" type engine (called the M189), which was the largest capacity engine Mercedes produced up to that date. The 300SE represented the companies top of the range cars with power steering and the self leveling suspension designed by Mercedes, after Citroen had developed their hydropneumatic suspension. Another feature of these 300SE models was the copious use of chrome! The 4 door model was based on the fintail body as was seen on the W111 and an additional longer wheelbase model was introduced in 1963, later called the 300SEL. In the meantime by early 1962 the stylish Paul Bracq 300SE coupe and cabriolet body designs now also became available. By 1967 the 3 litre engine was joined by the 2.8 litre engine, creating the 280SE model. Production of the 300SE continued to the end of 1967.

The original tyre size for the W112 Mercedes 300SE and 300SEL was 185HR14, and Blockley produces a excellent 185HR14 with good speed rating, which is also available as a Whitewall type. Many owners prefer to fit the wider (but same diameter) 205/70VR14 size which is also made by Blockley. See full details of all these Mercedes 300SE/SEL W112 tyres at the links below:
