I have a set of brand new Brabus MB V 2pc. wheels. I have posted this before. I will beat any price you find. I really need to sell the wheels. Anyone who is in the market for these wheels can contact me at 9494130897 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The wheels will come with Pirelli P7000 tires and all bolts and centercaps.
Another set of wheels for sale is the C320 Sport Wheels. These are used for about 3000 miles but are in MINT condition. There are no scratches at all and tires are still "new".
I have to sell either set. Pls get back to me ASAP if you are interested.

hey guys...i wanted to know what your opinion on these rims are?
a few questions though...would you guys have any idea how much they are?...say 19 x 8.5 / 19 x 9.5?....secondly, how much do these rims weigh in at?...lastly, what's the differences between 1 pcs / multi-piece rims?....i believve that multi-piece is alot more expensive, and i think someone told me that it is better in construction in someway....thanks
p.s if you have to have this rim on your C-class perferably on a C-Coupe, could you post a picture of it?
i am not sure what the cost of the 19's are, but this may help you...when I was getting cost of 17's..the lowest qoute I got for the Brabus monobloque V were $2650....that was with Michelin Pilot A/S...225/45/17's. I think the 19's were in the neighborhood of about $3500..wheels alone.
yeah i have to agree with you, that these are one of my favourite and in my own opinion one of the best looking rims for any C class. They appear to me like ACS type III rims for 3-series.
I like the Brabus wheels myself, but went with the new AMG split spoke wheels. I looked into the Monobloque VI - I like those over the V's. Here are some more prices...19" 2pc set...$3880. 18" 1pc set.....1898. Those were wheels only. I was surprised that Discount Tire are authorized Brabus resellers. They may give you a better deal than going directly through Brabus.
Here in Panama, my dealer gives me 4 Brabus Monoblock V 18" wheels and Toyo tires for $2530. You can do the math. I have a question about them. My dealer told me that in the 1 piece wheels, the wheel sticks out a little at the 1/4 and 3/4 of the height of the wheel. Is this true? I'm very interested in knowing this since I may scratch them when I park VERY close to a curb. Thanks for your help.
lee, i don't know why. i just remember luke at tirerack was asked once why they don't have lorinsers and he made some denigrating remarks about them. i don't know if those comments were in jest or not.

I'm getting a set of Brabus Monoblock V's for my coupe when it comes in, the question is whether to get the standard width (18x8.5) or to get the staggered (18x9.5R). Will the staggered work on the couple without having to mod the fender? Is there any real advantage to the staggered?

I think people who have cars with a lot of power get staggered since it provides more grip (wider rims mean more tire). It also looks better if the wheel well is filled. But if your engine does not produce the power it is not essential. Also, you cant rotate your tires so I recommend you getting the same size all around. Thats what I did when I looked into it.
I looked into the staggered in that size. Brabus says that the fender needs to be rolled some, as did my local shop that sells them.
They're also more expensive, and heavier. Though contact patch will be bigger, and they just look good. There are plusses and minuses. The biggest plus for me would be to hear how they worked on your car, so I think you should get 'em.

i went with the staggered setup and i have the c320. it didnt need any fender work at all, it fits well. i also had it lowered with the H&R cup kit. i have been waiting for the weather to get better so i can post some pics.

on a C230, the standard width is probably best. you don't have enough power (even if you chip it, etc...) and the aded weight will slow you down, unsprung weight is the enemy! it also allows you to rotate your tires, which facilitates longer tire wear which SAVES YOU MONEY!
at the end of the day, I'm just a jackass with a keyboard.
If Brabus NA doesn't tell you over the phone, call Ronal. They are the OEM for Brabus rims, along with many others...
