    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    They work for the car, but personally (just my tastes) I'd like to see a litte more meat on the spokes.

    The old AMG wheels for instance. Nice balance without looking too thin.


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    I like them !

    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    its funny that you mentioned that, because that is exactly what i thought when i first saw them. But after a few days with them they started growing on me and now i like them alot

    stock

    stock painted

    new

    IMO the car just looks alot better now


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    I like the style but would have chosen them 1 or 2 inches smaller.

    It does suit the car, but makes it a little bit too ' pimp ' ;-)

    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    The car looks much better with them, the AMG rims are so outdated I had them already 15 years ago on my SLK. Well done, beautiful!

    btw - great picture quality!


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    they are 19x8.5 in the frontn and 19x10 in the rear. compared to the stock 17x7.5,8.5

    They are a very aggressive offset ET 25, 20.

    It looks alot more aggressive from the rear now, probably because of the -2.7degrees of camber


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    They are very nice, I guess that goes without saying... What I never liked was the organic appearance of this particular CLK (209) and those rims just emphasise this. I personally am not fond of white on this particular car as it hides the few tense streaks on the body and believe that they´d look much better on a black model. They do look more appropriate than the std. rims though.

    As to Heist´s comment about the lack of meat on the spokes, I have to agree but believe that this is more due to the bi-colour layout. Entirely silver rims would look even better on that car.


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    Looks very nice, but the black star in the grille is too much! Such a lovely car though! Nice update.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    looks good and fit the car. What i like is that they're easy to clean.

    do you think i should get the starless brabus grill?, or should i buy the stock chrome star to replace the one that is black right now ?

    the starless one looks like this:

    That's very nice actually! I think if you want the grille blacked out like you do, the Brabus part will look so much better.

    If not, i'd go back to stock as the car looks very clean with it.

    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    okay, thanks guys!.. ill keep the star. I have just ordered theCF  front lip and CF Diffuser so i can finally run the quad tip exhaust


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    The black star looks good on the new Khan SLK. I say keep the star, either black or stock.

    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    I'm glad you like them....but for me it looks too much like the car is riding on rims without any tires!


    Re: I got new wheels!:: D2Autosport

    ^that is true. The ability to actually take a corner without sliding is nice though. I just ordered new sway bars btw so handling should be alot better.

    Once the first snowflake hits the ground, the stock wheels are going back on.
