Well at work today I had to do some brake work on a Sprinter Van. So with the wheels off I threw them on a 280GE that I was also working on, and they fit. Only rims from a single axle though. So I may have to pony up the money for those.

Those rims are made of Volkswagen LT-35 light truck rims, it is same vehicle that Mercedes Sprinter, but VW`s wheel was little bit cheaper(37.50€/piece vs. sprintter 43€) Ofcourse those are only for offroad use. I think that original 7"x15 Sprinter/LT-35 wheel offset is too narrow for G, but I´m not sure. And if you have cooled brake disc´s, brake caliber might be taken hit with wheel center.

I get more warm air from heater only flushin cooling system with radiator cleaner. I suppose that your car is equipped with code: H80 "heating for northern countries"

Yes Sprinter wheels are on the list, the last entry.

Funny I've always thought 928 wheels were cool. There's a set sitting outside a used wheel shop here that I've thought about stopping in and asking for a price on. Anyone know what a used set of Porsche wheels should be worth?

I guess that Porche´s wheel centerhole is too small?
Lot off cars have 5x130, but with 71.6 mm hole. Below link; AudiQ7, Porche, WV Tuareg. But ofcourse it´s possible to modificate 84.1 :)
