Whoa! Green E55! Haven't seen anything like that before. Must've been a special order huh? Also the Carlsson wheels on that car alone is somewhere between $10-12k right? Very nice! Has he dynoed that car yet? Or what's the HP?

Thanks!

Yes, special order. We did not put the car on the dyno as of now, but we will in the near future. The wheel package with the PS2s (245 & 275) was around $8000.00, the price in the past 90 days has come down. The customer is very pleased with the car.

Here are a couple of the E55 with tint after a fresh wax, along with my Cayenne Turbo that went bye bye today. Figured I'd better shoot them both, dont know when I will own two of the finest vehicles like this at the same time

I have to say, I'm not a fan of the wheels. I'm more of a less dense wheel kinda guy. Nonetheless, a W211 is a W211 in my book. NICE

Thanks guys. I'm usually a "less dense" wheel guy myself as well, but it was just the way these looked. They kinda remind me of the monoblocks that were on my 1999 E55. Anyway, the wheels are as follows:
Maya DTR, machined finish
Fronts are 9x20 wrapped in Toyo T1S 245/35/20
Backs are 10x20 wrapped in Toyo T1S 275/30/20

ekaz,

Did you have to shave or cut control arm bolt to fit 245/35-20 (26.9" diam. as per toyo.com specs)? If so, how much? I just barely fit that size in my SL, which has a bit more room then my E.

TIA.

Heh, kinda funny actually, I bought the CTT to replace my ML55 because it was the only SUV faster and better IMO. Then, 3 weeks later my wife buys an H2 to replace her CLK 320. No need for two SUV's in the house, and only a 2 car garage, so that let me sell the CTT and get my dream car=E55!!!

Benzoboi-Thanks

MB Fan,
Did not have to cut the bolt....very close fit though, barely fit my finger between the bolt and the tire. The wheel itself is wider so I don't think it's the full height as toyo says. I have been driving all weekend to see if there are any fitment issues, I have none. Fills the wheel-well nicely.
If interested, I can forward the info for the place where I purchased my wheels/tires. Pretty good price and they were all mounted/balanced came with new studs and locks. Free delivery as well.

Loose the running boards and the roof racks it makes it so much meaner and agressive looking.

You're probably right, but she is 5'3" and would never be able to get in without the running boards
