Arrow Black AMG wheels with red highlights

Hi

I came across these sexy wheels featured in pictures of a special addition Mercedes C63 AMG.

I think these wheels would look absolutely fantastic on my obsidian black R171 SLK 200

I was wondering if anybody knows if these wheels are available for purchase for a SLK and if so where they might be available from and at what approximate cost.

I have so far been unable to locate anywhere that sells these wheels

Regards,

Mick.

You could buy a set of 18" 16-spoke SLK wheels and have a shop paint them for you. Probably a LOT cheaper than getting a set of these for MB directly.

My detailing shop also recommended that I do this

If I went with these wheels I would most certainly get my callipers disassembled and sprayed red I considered changing over the callipers but it seems unnecessary and the cost would be quite high.

Wow, they have come up really nice and the cost was very reasonable.

Iv'e heard about these, there's also a similar (possibly a rubber/plastic clip on) option available that offers protection from gutter/curb rash

Inspired by this thread, and armed with print-outs of all the pictures in it, especially the original ones posted by Mick, I had my wheels and brakes re-done!!

These are some crappy cell phone pics of the result as I got my car back right around sunset. I'll take better ones tomorrow and post them in my Project Blackout thread.





By the way, the color of the pinstripe looks almost orange in the close-up, but it's the same red as the ///AMG letters on the rim. The calipers are a slightly darker red.

Those are beautiful!!!!!! I am so impressed with the quality of the work as they look brand new and it's a huge improvement to the look of your car. While I think it does make the car look even more aggressive, others have called it "sexy" and I think that is a good description!

Congratulations on another well done modification.

That's a great outcome Durk. The result is perfect.

It's been a surprise to see just how much interest there has been from other members who share my taste in wheel colour options.

Yeah. I had wanted to change my wheels from silver to something else that better matched all my other black-out mods. But I kept going back and forth between various options, never finding one that really resonated.

When you posted the satin black wheels with the red highlights I suddenly knew that that's what I wanted. Thanks for providing the inspiration. Now when are you going to do yours?!
