What do you call the Entry on the subject of tuning? For me and for many others, tuning begins with a lowering or a loud sports exhaust and, most importantly, with an increase in performance! It should be clear that everyone interprets the topic of tuning differently and so in the end everyone has a different idea of a tuned vehicle. But what if we take the trouble and compare our question with statistics? Then we will find that for a good 60% of all vehicle owners with a desire for customization, the car is the first to receive a new wheel set and this is almost always at least 1 inch larger than the factory rims. The rims are replaced before the car is chiptuned or lowered. This means that a new wheel set is the most common change to a vehicle, but it is also one of the most expensive. The choice to swap the rims is understandable, because the rims installed ex works are not necessarily unsightly, the problem is that the standard rims are selected in the manufacturer's configurator and of course thousands of other buyers have that, in this case S-Coupe, also done. In addition, the wheel sets are of course trimmed in the direction of mainstream optics ex works because they should please the general public.
All very good reasons for a new set of rims! Why not look around in the repertoire of ADV.1 Wheels to see if a chic alternative can be found? The owner of this ex works already extremely elegant Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe of the type C217 in white has “the wheelset project"And the standard rims were exchanged for an ADV.1 Wheels wheel set of the type ADV05R M.V2 CS in 22 inches and the color matt black. Anyone who knows ADV.1 Wheels can understand why it had to be this particular provider! ADV.1 Wheels has high quality rims in its range and a diverse selection. As you can see, there was something suitable for the big coupe from Stuttgart and the project could begin. Apart from the new rims, the C217 has received other changes that we are only aware of based on the photos, unfortunately we do not currently have exact details. Regardless of the focus is the new ADV.1 Wheels wheelset which certainly does not miss the standard rims and is definitely an asset to the S-Class. The vehicle looks more dynamic and sporty, which is always a plus and should also drive accordingly. We took a closer look at the photos and looked for differences compared to the production model and were able to determine a few more changes to the rims. What we have learned from ADV.1 Wheels and have recognized ourselves, we provide you as usual in a summary below. If you notice any further changes, we would be happy if you post them in the comment box.
Ps. Do you want to see more tuned vehicles with ADV.1 Wheels? For example, we have one Lamborghini Huracan or even one Spacy Lexus LX570. Just click at Photo Reference in the name of the tuner and you get all the vehicles we know so far.
