Hi guys! new here.. sort of

hey guys
to replace my mom's old 400 sel we picked up a s550 about a month ago..
anyways i'm a total noob to the world of modding for mercedes but just taking the same concept i have about bmws since i'm very into bmws ( e46fanatics.com!!) i've noticed that the front amber signals on the bumper.. just have to go!.. i'm thinking of getting clears. also i want to get some new rims for my mom's car since the ones they came with.. i just dont like them its the multispoke one.. like it looks like there are a thousand spokes haha... silverson bulbs all around probably too.
but anyways i was just wondering if you guys can help me out
i need help because i can't find anywhere to get the clears for the front, and i need to know the bolt pattern and type of rims that will fit the car, and if anyonen knows the bulb number for the turn signal bulbs it will help a lot as well
thank you

btw any suggestions or pics of rims would be welcome and appreciated as well

jon

Can't help you on the bulbs, but the bolt pattern on the rims is 5-112. Unfortunately for selection, the front brake calipers are enormous, and will prevent a lot of deep dish wheels from going on.

Having said that, you may want to consult with www.tirerack.com and search for wheels compatible with the S550. Or you may want to go to www.superbuytires.com (a huge vendor which was only 1/2 hour from me) and look at what they have. The wheels I ended up putting on mine are at the following link: http://superbuytires.com/gallery/vie...lade_II/12146/ . There's a decent lip in the front, and a deeper lip in the back. The S550 in the pictures is actually mine, but the sizes they list are wrong, though. The sizes are actually 20x8.5 front, 20x10 rear. I also put Pirelli P Zero Rossi tires: 255/35ZR20 front, 285/30ZR20 rear.

Hope that helps you.
