Wednesday Wheels: 21″ Mercedes-Benz AMG Monoblock Wheels

They are back! In a move no one really saw coming, Mercedes-AMG decided to re-boot the Monoblock-style wheel on two of their new AMG cars. The GT 63 S AMG as you see above will feature them in 21″, as well as the yet-to-be-released GLS63 AMG that will size them in 23“. A 23” Monoblock! Yes, they do offer the in a polished look if matte black is your taste, but be warned, these are not cheap wheels. Not at all.

Wednesday Wheels Roundup

Time for another wheel roundup, and as I’m just in for winterizing the Audi and swapping the snow wheels onto the Subaru, I’ve got the chunky winter tires on my mind. Just because you’re swapping on the winter duds doesn’t mean you can’t still be in style on a budget, and today I’ve got a few sets that look like a great deal. The Audi B8 wheels are awesome looking – factory wheels aren’t the lightest, but they’re well made, well finished and look great on a number of newer Audis. For only $650, this set with caps looks awesome. The Tiguan wheels are the only non-stock wheels here, being made by Sport Edition. It’s a popular Tire Rack winter brand that looks reasonable and gets the job done. With few miles on that set of tires, it looks like an awesome deal at under $500. The Beetle wheels fit a bunch of the Mk.4/A3/TT models, and the brand new factory wheels and new tires mounted for under $800 seems like money well spent. Then BMW wheels are a bit more pricey but look overall to be in good shape. Then there are the factory 8″ Mercedes wheels, off either a 500SL or 500E. With some chunky looking rubber and no reserve, at the current bid of $250 they’re an absolute steal.

Wednesday Wheels Roundup: Period Pieces

Who doesn’t love a good period wheel? They weren’t always the most attractive designs, but nowadays they’re all the rage; clean up a good set of wheels that were rare to begin with and now are hardly ever seen and you’ll be the envy of countless enthusiasts at your next show! I’ve got some cool period pieces today – from the Zenders that are always fan favorites to some obscure Porsche steel wheels. Even more obscure are the Hayashi racing and Simmons wheels for BMW; but clean and in the right application, they’d be pretty cool. I can’t ID the set of Japanese made red wheels, so input is appreciated. Otherwise, enjoy!
