While Mercedes' cars are built to last, even a meticulously maintained and detailed Benz may be lacking because of its pitted, scratched or peeling chrome wheels. Peeling chrome can be a factor for those annoying air leaks.
If you've decided it's time to fix your wheel problems, take a look at the ASA Type 8. The wheel is the standard Mercedes 5-lug 8 hole design. (This design is often referred to as an 8 Hole because it's a flush disc with 8 oval-shaped holes around the perimeter).
It's available in silver and chrome finishes, with the option of using the Mercedes-Benz O.E. center cap. Adding a new set of tires to a wheel purchase to create a Tire & Wheel Package can also give your Mercedes a new look while receiving all necessary hardware including lugs, center caps and centering rings at no additional charge. Professionally mounted and balanced, a package arrives ready to install. Read 'How to Install Your Wheel & Tire Package" for more information.
If you are someone who drives approximately 5,000 miles annually at or slightly above the speed limit and having a tire that is quiet is one of your top priorities, then consider the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity or the Michelin Primacy MXV4. Both tires are quiet with good wet traction. The Bridgestone has slightly better wet grip while the Michelin tire offers better steering response. If you prefer the Michelin Primacy MXV4 and want them with a set of 15" Chrome ASA Type 8 wheels, they can arrive in Miami, Florida, for example, mounted and balanced for approximately $1326.* If considering an upgrade in sizing to the 16" version of the wheel, the total is roughly $1551.*
