They look great. I think that is my favorite wheel on the R. Can I ask how much?

Nice wheels! If any car EVER screamed to be lowered, your is it. Get some springs!

Re: VST Rims member!! Not 56K friendly (JOSBRO)

well I'm working on the springs... the weight of the rims i think are 21 a piece. I dont know if it is me but the car fells lighter, like more nimble.

They also make the brake disks look small, good oportunity to upgrade to 330mm drilled rotors.<p>I like your rims, good buy.

Nice wheels! you might want to rub some of that taste to your boy. The wheel choice on the S550 is less than desired. For the price of the car, the least he can do is afford decent rims. <BR><BR>

I'm sure the wheels were plenty expensive, but they do give the car a bit of a Chrysler 300 look. That said, in person I would probably drool all over the car inside and out. I'm happy to see that Mercedes is finally stepping up their design game since the disaster that was the '93+ S-series, but those flared fenders are a bit over the top...
