If I would like to change my steel wheels/hubcaps for aluminum wheels, what size width and offset do I need for a 1983 240D?

there is only one alloy rim that fits your car with the correct offset and that is the 6x14" Mercedes-Benz alloy rim ,
prices vary from $125 to $160 depending on the dealer

here's a low online price dealer http://germanstar.net/Mercedes_Parts_Catalog.html

important ! the tire size is critical!
use only 195/70X14 tires or your steering will turn to krap.

there was a light alloy rim for the 240 and 300 D's (123.123 and 123.130) - 5.5" x 14" offset30 , M-B part number 123 400 17 02 which would use 175x14 tires - which are non existant - here in the US

the 6"x14" offset30 alloy rim (300CD, 300D turbo, 300TD )
M-B part number 126 400 19 02 uses a 195/70x14" tire - many choices in the US
