Thanks. Adds a bit of colour to black car. As to the wheels, i am dissapointed AMG don't make 18 x 8.5 F and 18 X 9.5 R as these sizes seem to suit my C55 than standard staggered 7.5 and 8.5 set-up. I am however seriously considering having the spokes colour matched, and leaving the chrome lips.Very nice - Peter has done a similar thing on his C43.
Really don't like those wheels though .
Thanks, i had researched a number of AMG wheels for different MB's, and all required something different wrong offsets, bolt sizes etc. As Mandrus make wheels specifically for Mercedes these were a direct bolt on , which could be temporary unless i decide to have the spokes painted.AMG do - but they're for the R129 so don't think the offset is correct?
Thanks Scorcher. I was going to have Kleemann headers put on my C55, but am not keen on having 2 loud cars, unless i can find a way off quietening down the exhast system with them fitted i will leave them out and opt for the Kleemann SC etc.I've got a pair on my desk too!
Car is looking great Tudu
I'd louden up the 55 and quieten down the other oneThanks Scorcher. I was going to have Kleemann headers put on my C55, but am not keen on having 2 loud cars, unless i can find a way off quietening down the exhast system with them fitted i will leave them out and opt for the Kleemann SC etc.
Hi Andy, great to hear from you. I researched a number of wheel styles that would fit my new brake upgrade, they were all good some fitted, some did not, plus i had problems with offsets, bolts etc. In the end, and as a temporary measure i settled for the Mandrus, as they fitted perfectly, and are made specifically for MB. I may colour code the spokes on these - don't know quite yet - but i will certainly take a look at some other wheels including HRE's Thanks.Tudu, did you look at hre's at all prior tp buying those ???, they do some stunning alloys and top quality too.
looking god though bro......
