Hello, looking for feedback from those who have fitted aftermarket wheels and spacers.
I am thinking that the wheel bolts currently fitted are not long enough. From what I can see, there is only around 10mm of bite on them...

Just noticed this. The NSR tyre has worn down to the wires on the inside shoulder.:eek: The outside shoulder is bald too (which is what caught my eye) but nowhere near as bad. The middle of the tread is ok though.
The other rear tyre is fine and the car seems to drive ok, with the steering...
I've decided to change the wheel colour on my car since picking the car up I've not really liked the smoked type colour finish so decided to get them done in a lighter colour.
This is before.
This is after
I have a set of 4 AMG wheel rim decals in metal with black AMG image on the inside, these are metal and just peel the backing off and stick to your rims. Very rare look awesome when fitted.
pm for more info.
When I picked up my c43 from MB they said they have thrown in Alloy Wheel and Tyre Protection policy.
Has anyone else had this? I am able to have 6 repairs done to my alloys and 4 new tyres (does not cover wear and tear).
I need 4 new tires but its only covered if my tyres pop or they are...
I few months back I bought a sports option steering wheel for my 2005 W203 270 CDI to replace the grey standard one in the car.
I have just replaced the steering angle sensor and went to fit the wheel, and unfortunately the airbag fittings are different. They are still green and yellow but...
The car has done 29k so relatively low miles, but the car had horrible alcantara on the wheel.
I used elbow grease and car shampoo foam, and I think the results speak for themselves! Very happy and the wheel feels amazing now. :bannana:
Need some advice please on wheel options. I would like to replace the 14 x 5.5 inch wheels on my 1973 W114 coupe. Current tyre size is standard 175/80R14.
Can anyone suggest what my options are without adjusting offset, etc?
As above I pick up my 2014 E63 estate in a couple of days and already thinking of changing the wheels to something with a concave/Vossen look and perhaps up to 20". From the outset I was never a fan of the factory wheels so was already in my mind about replacing them (as well as changing the...
Instead of buying a new set of alloys, I decided to have the original AMG alloys re-sprayed. Drivers side collected this morning, Passenger front will be done by Sat & the rears by the end of next week.
A question not about my car for once!
We have a car in the household where one of the (2002 Yaris with 14" rims) alloys is losing air, its had a brand new tyre fitted so we know its not that, the fitter also wire brushed and applied sealant but this has not helped so the options as I...

I have a Sprinter 2007 209cdi 88hp.
It came with alloys on when i bought it but after a flat yesterday I discovered the spare steel rim wont fit because of the alloy bolts, so i went to Merc and bought some sprinter wheel bolts and they are too long. When questioned back at Merc they...
