Pics of my CLK55 AMG on 19" Brabus Monoblock VI, 2-piece

Well, I finally decided to make the leap and get wheels. After deciding between 18" and 19", I did the right thing and went with 19", and lowered the car too. There are a lot of great wheels out there for th W209, but I think the Brabus (Authentic, of course) Monoblock VI in 2-piece is the right wheel for mine.

Modifications:

* 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear. Michelin PS2 tires all the way around.
* 10mm spacer in front and 16mm spacer in rear.
* Lowered Brabus springs on AMG shocks. The ride quality is near stock, amazing.
* 4-wheel alignment and rolled fenders, round out the mods. I'm a big believer in alignment and feels that it adds quality to the ride as well.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the compliments, guys!

The Brabus springs dropped it 1.25 inches in the front and 1 inch in the rear. It has less than 1-finger space of clearance all around. I am really happy with it.

Aren't you glad you upgraded to the 19's? The ride quality is definitely still there and not as nearly as bad as I was afraid it would be. Hear are my specs and pics.

*19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear. Falkens 452 tires 230/30 front and 265/30 rears
*Lowered on H&R springs.

The car feels way heavy, handles much better and gas mileage has gone down but well worth it I get so many compliments on my ride now. Like you SoCalCLK, it took me a while to make up my mind on which wheel to go with and by looking at my car and now yours; I think we both made the right choice

Yes, 19"s are the way to go. I was rolling on the 18" AMG IV wheel and it just isn't the same, it didn't do the car justice. Plus, 2-door cars look better with larger rims.

Your car looks pimp with those wheels. Very clean and goes great with the silver color. Great choice on the tires, great fitment.

Now that is a good looking ride. Dare I say whip.

Good choice.

those wheels look pretty close to my Rays two piece forged wheels. Nice choice.

Thanks for the compliments SoCalCLK! What other mods are you considering if any? My next move is going to be the ECU Tune and maybe removing the resonators...we'll see. Oh, and getting the rear calipers painted the same as the fronts.

Thanks again, MartyMar. ECU tune would be next in terms of performance. Maybe a resonator delete, or high-flow cats. In the meantime, I got the OEM 3-slat grille, which is in the pics and makes a huge difference in freshening up the front.

I am thinking about getting a CLK63 BS front bumper or even the Brabus front bumper.

Wheels look great on your car. I too think the Brabus VI in 19's look phenomenal on the W209, it just sucks that replicas are so abundant. Definitely a great set of wheels! The size and authenticity makes your decision perfect.

I can't wait to see a 63 or Brabus bumper in Black Opal. That will be straight sex!

those wheels look clean......i'd get a brabus front bumper to go with the theme cause the BS bumper first costs way too much and then it wouldn't look right without the whole BS package
