Changed up wheels

Got inspired by the new S65 Final Edition wheel color on black car. Love the look especially with the nut brown and carbon fiber interior.

Love the wheels! Where did you get them? Could they be used on an E450?

Sure. Did them myself. Cost $60 and about 4 hours. Used Plasti-Dip Copper over Black. Iíve done it many times, but itís not hard. Watch a few YouTube vids and do a really good job of cleaning beforehand. Sounds crazy I know. But Iíve done on my Turbo S, 458, all with great lasting results.

That's a great mod that didn't cost you thousands of dollars....the AMG gold calipers set them off nicely as well. I wish more owners would mod their wheels with colors more often.....love to see a picture thread showing them.

Just the face. Mask off the rotors and calipers, remove center hub covers and did 3 coats black, 3 copper and then a final coat of clear glossifier.
