    1998-2001 5 Spoke CLK Wheels

    Yes, I have set of the above wheels for sale. These wheels came off my CLK and have been replaced by another set. These 4 wheels were refurbished just over a year ago, and the lip was painted, as opposed to the polsihed finish (i.e. these would make a great winter set of wheels). Three of...

    Tyres for (w208) CLK 55

    Falken 452's are very good. From someone who normally goes for a Bridgestone or leading brand, these are just as good, and sticky. Many people on here recomed them. Buy from camskill, do a search on the forum for their details. Ian

    speaker cable markings

    If the speakers did not have a big crossover mounted to it, I would be tempted as a start to just replace speakers. I suppose firing down uses the boot as a chamber to improve the bass. Interesting stuff. Ian

    speaker cable markings

    Agree, thats what I have learnt over the years. Thus my focus on getting this right. Luckily the autoleads speaker spacers come with wiring adapters so I can work it out from that. Now after all that, to see if I run new leads to the doors or use existing wiring. :-) Ian
