    Does anyone know how good the quality of these wheels is?

    Thinking of putting the Millenium on my ML in 20"/22" (cant decide if 22" looks silly).

    Will they be fine with Airmatic and tyre sensors?

    Thanks all.:D

    I have a set of Millennium silver wheels in 18's. They are specifically made for MB so you should have no probs re tyre sensors. Don't know what they will look like in 22's though.

    Photoshopped onto AMG 164 with standard AMG size rims. For other sizes you will need to apply some imagination, unless I feel generous tomorrow (or bored ;) ).

    Yes, nice work with photoshop.

    I like the 20s but to me the 22s look bizarre.

    Looks awful IMHO, the arch gap looks so silly on both sizes but the larger one obviously worse!

    Yeah - I am not convinced either. Presumably the arch gap on the 20"s is the same as any ML63 as thgey come with 20" wheels...

    Hmmmph. Not sure what to do now. 19" look itsy bitsy. 20"+ looks odd!

    The brakes will look hopelessly small with 22" rims and slim spokes!

    I take it you'll not be taking it offroad... so is there a lowering module for these?

    Not much I can do about the brakes - they already look small behind the 5 spoke wheels...I hoped multispoke would hide them...

    p.s. I do have airmatic, so it looks lowish in sport mode...

    Presumably, the shots on the Mandrus website are lowered.
