The E500 gets wheels. Finally.










Brabus Monoblock VI one piece, 18x9.5 all around. Kumho Ecsta MX 245/40R18 front and 275/35R18 rear. Thanks to Sander at The Wheel Supply for hooking it up like no other.

Look s tight

Daesun, looks hot. Now you just need to fill up that empty space with some FAtttt brakes.



Let me know. I got the hook ups from 355MM big brakes.

Thanks for the compliments, guys.

ESVIC - The suspension is 100% stock. There's still plenty of room, I'm going to swap out the spring pads this weekend and maybe use some bigger spacers to get the wheels flush with the fenders. Also, my next tires will be sized 285/35R18 in back.

vincec - The neat part is, the fronts are as wide as the rears, 9.5". When do we get to see yours?

Guido - I finally got rid of those wretched 16s you hated so much. I may take you up on that Stoptech setup when I wear out my current pads and rotors. 14" has a nice ring to it.

Stay away from the road bumps with those 18's

DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN! That 'chine looks almost as good as mine.

Does Brabus make them in 17X8 - et 35 ? Lookin for summer wheels for my wife's S6 Avant and all the Audi offerings look like VW wheels on steroids

Thanks for the lead omegabenz

Just took a quick look and they are slick lookin but no 17X8 or 17X8.5s in the line up offering a 5/112 bolt pattern and a 35 offset

the search goes on. . . .
