To change it up! Think about it, you can never see both sides of the car at once so it gives it two different looks.

A very nice looking package, BUT...the different wheels on each side would not be my choice. However if you like that setup then that is all that matters. Enjoy!

The reason for the two different wheels it that I work for a company that happens to distribute a certain MBZ tuner in the US. (Excuse the vagueness but I was warned once already for "promoting" said company).

Thanks for the kind words. I hope everyone likes it!


ViK -- No I don't do the carshow scene. Too busy. I did do some shows with some customers' cars last year with TWC -- but this year I really don't forsee it fitting in my schedule.

I like it and I even not sure which model of wheel I will choose if the car can only have 1 model. So, that's probably my reason to go with 2 models of wheels. Thanks for sharing the pics

Don't be sorry! Look at my last post above -- it explains the main reason for the two different wheels.

Glad you guys like it.

I think Brabus forgot all about the fender flares. Too busy worrying about that ugly front and rear bumper they created. They really dropped the ball on the 164 ML IMO of course. And Im a big fan of Brabus myself. Dont Flame me, I just dont like it at all. Maybe with Fender Flares, the Brabus car will look like the beast that it is supposed to be.

The two different wheels, Your not the first to do it, I think its actually pretty cool. Ive seen this on many cars before. The ride must be pretty bad with two different wheels though.

All in all, if your happy with it, Im happy for you.

Thanks for the kind words and your honest opinion.

Brabus has relased a wide-body version, called the WideStar for the 164. This is meant to be their more aggressive version of the 164. They now offer 3 styles for the same chasiss, more than any other "tuner" can say. The WideStar also offers a 23" wheel for the first time from Brabus.

http://www.seriouswheels.com/cars/to...Benz-ML-63.htm

As far as the ride being bad, it is the complete opposite. We chose two wheels of similar design and weight (obviously same size and offset) in order to deter problems. These wheels are actually within ~2 lbs of eachother. The trade off is being able to display to different wheels, which in my business is important.

Not feeling those "S" wheels at all. They really dropped the ball with that design. The Monoblock VI are infinitely better looking. Aside from those wheels, it looks great!

Thanks Kleen. It is dropped -- those pics were taken the day it was done so the springs have not settled yet. It is not a bit lower -- though the Brabus springs are not that aggressive, only a 30MM drop at most.
