    I have used the search function but come up short. Is there one? If not, can you post pics of your wheel setups here, just want an insight into what looks good and compatibilty.

    Thanks

    Those are nice. Is that standard suspension setup or aftermarket?

    not that low and an 18" rather than 19" rim.

    Same here ...

    I didn't measure it to be honest, as I replaced the springs with H&R as I was fed up of the standard AMG springs breaking every couple of years, rather than to lower it. It was low though!

    Ride was good, and both ride and handling were very close to standard, however it had AMG suspension befor and so may have been slightly firmer than a non-AMG spec car. I would recommend the H&Rs based upon my experience :thumb:

    They're AMG IV but split rim. There is a genuine 19-inch wheel available, although many split rim I'm that style are replicas, so there's a range of prices from cheap to eye watering in that style!
