    Sorry but IMHO they don't suit the car at all. Looks all spindly.

    Hmm. It's your car and therefore what you like goes. For me the black clashes with blue and would IMHO be better silver. As someone who has owned several w202 and driven 130k in them, 19 inch wheels will ruin the ride, even AMG only went to 17s on C43. As I said though it is your car and it's what you like that counts. All IMHO!

    No 202 ever had bigger than 17" rims from the factory, 18"s may of been a dealer fitted option, but if you look in the AMG accessory catalogue for a 202 18"s were never listed for them
    The C55 202 was effectively an AMG special and was converted only after intial purchase of a standard C43, they only had 18"s as an option (IIRC additional 2500 Euros) decided at the time of conversion at the AMG Workshop.

    You've got an absolutely cracking example of a W202 AMG there and yet you've made your car look wrong with those wheels on IMO.

    As long as you like em OP that's all that matters. :)


    However when you come to sell the car I'd put the standard ones back on otherwise you'll lessen the value even further as has been proved with the overwhelming negative response. :doh:

    ..............just saying like! :thumb:

    Hmmmm
    Wheels on the car are like shoes for us - my opinion
    Would we like to play basketball in Jordans or in boots ?
    Don't know if I'm making a point he he he
