I see where your coming from Tony but for me swapping isn't a big deal as I manage a tyre centre anyway.
Millduu, would guess that you are correct but just worth checking.I see where your coming from Tony but for me swapping isn't a big deal as I manage a tyre centre anyway.
Phil - I can't see them having any claim on my existing wheels as I've paid the extra to buy them in the first place,the way `i read it is that if 21" all seasons aren't going to be made then the only option is a wheel/tyre package be it 19" or 20" with all season/winters for the below 7 deg months for the 43 models.
We shall wait and see.
Another factor to consider for cars with staggered wheels - possibly larger and wider rears - is that MB appear to only be offering a single size wheel and tyre for all four corners. They believe this also helps reduce the crabbing. I'm not sure fitting narrower rear wheels and tyres will look right under the wider / sportier wheel arches on a C43 AMG. But it might help reduce the problem, so an acceptable fix for MB?
Not heard this Tony, 43 has different width tyres front and back and as far as I am aware the only size they are having trouble sourcing all weathers for are the 21 inch, no mention of swapping wheels on other sizes.
If you haven't already found a source to get your calipers painted, these guys know what they are doing. Since Sport trim doesn't come with logo'd calipers, it was easy enough to paint my own using their paint.Want the calipers doing red to match the trimmings, going to get them done professionally.
Have a great weekend with the new carI see your point on the looks,but I would only want to drop to 20's for winter anyway.
At the moment there's only Continental who do the tyres for the 21's anyway,I've zoomed in on the pictures and that's what mine has fitted.
I'll see how she fairs tomorrow night when I collect her.
Going for a road trip over the weekend hopefully to get some running in miles on it,so I'll keep you posted.
