Smile AMG replica wheels?

Hey Guys! Last week I bought my first M-B (2008 C180K Avant Garde) so I figured I would join your community Btw, first impressions of the car are really good I have to say! Anyway, the reason for my thread is that I'm looking for some nice looking wheels for my car. I'd prefer AMG wheels I think... Are there other online shops than Power Wheels Pro where you can find nice AMG replicas? How is the quality on the wheels delivered by Power Wheels Pro? Do they only ship from the US? Do you think the car needs to be lowered for it to look good? Thanks in advance!

in my opinion, from what i've seen is that the C63 replica wheels look good, but are not available in the correct offsets. they poke out a little bit. that has always held me back.

I have had very good experience with two sets of wheels from them. They source from TUV/JWL certified plants. The 44 offsets look good to my eye, but look at the photos and see what you think. BTW, I never lower a car.

The rears are only 8 inches wide or I would be on the 810's that you have Sportstick. I just replaced the rears with 255's and the manufacturer of the tires says no to that. That 1/2 inch makes a difference I guess.

Sportstick,

Thanks for the insight. My son and I are both considering Power wheels pro but have been apprehensive. My son has a GTI and loves what they make. I like the C63 reps in a 19 in.

Hey! Wow the wheels look really good on your car! Congrats! Sadly I think that the extra fees that comes with buying wheels from the US will make me look in Europe instead. Have found a guy on the english version of eBay with some nice wheels.

What do you guys think of these on a w204?

Those are beautiful. I would have considered open spoke wheels if I had discovered Akebono brake pads first...scrubbing out MB brake dust on my original split spoke wheels was a nightmare, but Akebono are essentially dust free.
