Those are original Carlsson wheels brother and the picture does not do justice to it. In live they are awsome. Yes if you go to see they are aftermarket wheels as Mercedes Benz does not offer them.

Total Gansta look. Love it actually. Now I can actually picture snoop dog getting out of the car. A little bigger sizer rim would have suited the car even better.

The owner did not want to compromise on ride quality and chose this size. You should see it on the road, looks killer. He also owns a 997 turbo .

Nice to see this thread re-gained life!

Good find buddy. Carlsson look good for those who want a different identity for his S.

Last day from Cochin I saw a S320 CDI fitted with AMG 20" wheels & full black tint. I was killer looking. But couldn't snap. Since Merc is coming with very basic wheels people are tent to change the wheels.

Hey, that is a nice Sonder classe there. Though I feel could have done without the Carlsson logo. Any clue who is is the 'known someone' ? Dutt ?

I asked the same question, but thats how the wheels come and you have no choice but to accept with the Logo. He is Z.K. and no it is not Sanju bhaiya. He does not have the W221 anymore, changed it for the A8. and i think he has a superbike too but am not sure so did not mention it.

The wheels on that S look awesome! The owner also had an S600 second hand which he later sold off for a price higher than he bought it. His 997 is not in good condition and is for sale presently.

What you saying, i thought it was another 997 that was up for sale. He recently got the exhaust done for the car. I dont know of his S600, maybe it was with him for a short while. Which Model S600, W140,W220,W221 was it?

Yeow ! I assume it is the B.I.L of HR ? I never knew he could afford anything this sorts. Yes, If VO can buy a Panamera, Why not !

Even I heard Sanju bhaiyya sold his W221. But the Black, S350 and Fancy rims made me doubt. (Remembered the W220 with Spinners)

No its not. i have not heard any official conformation of the Panamera yet. Then again the base one is affordable. It also could be a gimmik as the porsche showroom is also owned by the same person who has the Ducati dealership.

The W220 with the spinners was something. They stayed on the car for a short while before being changed to the normal wheels again and then both got sold.

They may be original, aftermarket, expensive and all that, but bottomline? Hideous wheels on that S. But yeah, maybe they look better in person. Personal opinion, of course.
