17 inch lorinser wheels 3x112 $600

Up for grabs is a decent set of 3x112 wheels for a Smart Fortwo. Wheels have very light lip bends in some spots. Nothing major. Or extreme. Can easily be refinished or left as is because it isn’t really noticeable as you can see in photos. Brabus and lorinser wheels are known for being a bit soft and since these are 17 inch wheels tires aren’t too meaty. They will need new tires but that’s about it. All hold air perfectly. You don’t need any special adapters or spacers. Directly bolt on the smart car!
Price is 600 bucks plus shipping

Not 'All Smarts' - just the 451 :)


450s a 3x112 but the rear has to be ET -1 or ET -13 depending on the width.
453s are 4 bolt

I own a 451 with 8 inch wide wheels and a -25 rear offset. There are several people running these on their 450s though from what I’ve seen.

Ok, what's the offset of the wheels you have to sell?

They won't mount on the rear of a 450 without spacers :)


I've got 8.5" wide wheels on my 453.
I've got a few 450s.
Was interested; don't have enough specific wheel data.

Et 24 on all 4 I believe. Google lorinser speedy on smart 450. These people have all bolted on directly so I’m not sure why you’re saying it won’t fit. Other people even have rear lowered. Unless you’ve got some big brake performance kit I don’t see why they wouldn’t fit just like everyone else’s haha

Forget 'google'; test for real.


Lorinser makes the speedy specifically for the 450, 451, 452, and 453 (different models, different offsets)


Why? because the wheels you have are for the 451, the rear is actually 17x7 ET 15.
That means the wheel has 4.6" Backspace.


The Lorinser speedy for the 450 is 17x7 ET -13.
That means the wheel has 3.5" Backspace.


When you try to mount the rear 451 wheel on the rear of the 450, it hit's the strut and you can't bolt it on.
You can mount the 451 rear wheel onto the rear of the 450 with a 1.25" spacer - 1" it still hit's the strut.
So now your 451 wheel mounted on a 450 with a 1.25" spacer sticks out of the wheel well 1" - not legal in Europe and some states.


Good luck with the sale - just clarifying for you that it's the 451 wheels and only bolts on the 451.
