Up until now, a new Mercedes has only been for the crème de la crème. Fortunately, with the introduction of the new Mercedes CLA, the tables have turned, and a new Mercedes is attainable by more people. With an introductory price under $30k, the CLA-Class is the biggest bang for your buck – it’s classy, stylish and sporty. In other words, it’s the total package. But, when a car that’s supposed to make you stand out suddenly looks just like your neighbors car, it’s important to add your own personal touches. A great way to upgrade your CLA is with a set of unique aftermarket wheels.
There are so many styles of Mercedes aftermarket wheels out there, that although it may be overwhelming to choose one, it helps boost your chances of setting your CLA apart. While it’s best to get the same size wheels as your stock CLA wheels, you can also go bigger or smaller. Personally, I think dark wheels look sexy on the CLA, and my favorite set I’ve found so far are from Enkei Wheels, the RSO5RR Racing Series in the gunmetal finish. They’re just dark enough, with a race-inspired look, without drawing too much attention away from the curvature of the car itself. They’re also sold in the 18” x 8.5” size with a 5 x 112mm bolt pattern and 45mm offset, which should be just right for a stock CLA.
I’m a firm believer that your car should be a representation of yourself, so no matter if your CLA is black, white, red or silver, aftermarket Mercedes-Benz wheels are sure to give it that personalized look. So, if you love the new CLA, but don’t want to look just like the next guy or gal at the car meet, custom rims are the perfect way to make your Mercedes stand out in a crowd.
