Stuttgart. Attractive light-alloy wheels from Mercedes-Benz Accessories enhance the appearance of any vehicle while lending an added touch of sportiness and elegance. According to Mercedes-Benz Designers, large wheels up to 21 inches as well as high-sheen light-alloy wheels, which are particularly appealing thanks to the contrast between the seemingly bare metal surface and the painted areas, are still popular. A new trend includes additional fine spokes. Painted in a contrasting colour to the high-sheen main spokes, they create a refined highlight.

With the help of the accessories configurator on the website http://www.mercedes-benz.de/, suitable wheels and the correct tyre size can be found for practically any Mercedes-Benz. Additionally, during the vehicle configuration, the appropriate complete summer or winter wheels can also be ordered and then requested from any authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer in Germany when the seasons change.

Extensive development and testing programme

Mercedes-Benz light-alloy wheels not only enhance the vehicle's looks, they also offer an extremely high level of safety. All the wheels are precisely configured for the vehicle models with respect to permissible loads and dimensions. Before the light-alloy wheels are allowed to become reliable companions on every journey, they go through an extensive development and testing programme.

Every wheel design must pass a wide variety of endurance tests according to stringent Mercedes-Benz guidelines that go beyond the legal requirements. These include special test procedures that simulate the loads encountered in real traffic situations, as well as material tests using the latest X-ray equipment. High-sheen wheels are subjected to additional tests such as highly corrosive salt-water spray or a 28-day climate cycle. Only when they have passed all the tests are the wheels included in the range of genuine Mercedes-Benz light-alloy wheels.
