thanks. I saw these and many other stunners on their website.

I was looking at their flow formed FF04 wheels and was told that the GLC offset would lose the concavity. that is why I was asking. of course they have more flexibility with forged wheels.

Here you go. Still a pretty significant amount of concavity there

I am going to run these 315 width Atturo AZ850 tires on the rear while I measure my tolerance for 22" wheels. I'm running the Conti DWS 06 in front.

I just ordered Vorsteiner VFF-107 rims from Wheels Boutique running with Michelin Pilot Alpine 5.

'18 Black GLC63S
Dviolagis - I ordered that same fitment from WB earlier this week as well. I bet you worked with the same guy I did. He and I went back and forth on various fitment options, which are limited for the 63. I originally went with HRE, but there was a delay for the Tarmac black with no ETA, so we switched to the Vorsteiner option that KumaGLC63 posted.

Yes I really wanted those HRE rims. I thought they looked better and easier to clean.

The profiles used on the 20" FF04 fitment for your GLC is flat front and rear. There's no way around this due to the limitations of the car. The only way to get a concave wheel would be to opt for custom forged HRE's that allow us to build more aggressive fitments pushing the wheel out more and allowing for better profiles. "

Forged HREs for winter? Wow. They look amazing. I was not willing to fork out 10k for wheels. Seeing your car complement, money not an issue for you. Congrats. Whatever you are doing, keep it up ����✌️��

Hi Jurrian,

Thanks. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I was waiting until the car gets wrapped and cleaned before sending you guys pictures.

If you remember, you also made these same wheels for my Performante spyder which should be at the dealership on Wednesday. I'll send pictures once that car gets wrapped and lowered within the next few weeks.

John

It's hard to tell from the picture but almost looks like the drivers rear tire is rotating in the wrong direction, maybe I'm wrong? (Maybe the tires were mounted on the wheel wrong or you have the two rear wheels swapped which is more likely?)

Those wheels are incredible, the spokes themself are actually directional.
