Mercedes Wheels: Where to Find Them

Aug 2, 2008
Nice aftermarket Mercedes wheels can really make your Mercedes look like a million bucks. Unfortunately, custom rims can be pretty expensive, so it is to your best advantage to shop around as much as possible before purchasing them. Here are some ideas of where to find this accessory in your search for an affordable set.

Traditional wheel and tire stores: There are plenty of traditional, brick-and-mortar wheel and tire stores still around, where you usually find a small selection of aftermarket items. Sometimes you may find exactly what you are looking for in a store like this, as they tend to carry the styles that are the most popular currently. Also, it's nice to be able to buy your tires in the same place, and at the same time have wheels put on your car there, too.

However, these traditional wheel and tire stores often have a very limited selection, so if you are looking for something a little less common, such as Mercedes wheels, you may not be able to find what you are looking for in one of these stores. Keep that in mind, and make these stores the first stop on your list, but plan on continuing to look elsewhere.

Online wheel stores: Thankfully, there are a number of large wheel stores on the Internet. These stores tend to have much better selections than traditional brick-and-mortar stores: They only have to worry about warehouse space, rather than having to maintain a showroom floor. In addition, they can list accessories on their site that they don't have in stock, but that are ordered directly from the manufacturer, enabling the store to offer a better selection without having to have the additional warehouse space.

Buying online is particularly handy when you are looking for something a little harder to find, such as good Mercedes wheels. You may also be able to find a better deal online, where there is more of a global market. However, keep in mind that you'll have to pay extra for shipping, and you will need to take the wheels to a shop to have tires mounted and the wheels put on your car.

Craigslist and newspapers: A good way to find auto items at a great price is to look for people selling them used in newspaper classifieds and on online community bulletin boards, such as Craigslist. This does require a little more caution on your part however, as you want to be sure you don't buy faulty wheels or get sucked into a scam. Ask lots of questions via email or phone and inspect the wheels carefully before making your purchase.

Additionally, you might try contacting appropriate car clubs to see if anyone is selling these accessories through their newsletters.

Mercedes wheels comparison shopping: Even though these can be kind of expensive, you should be able to find a set at a reasonable price if you do some comparison shopping. Just don't rely solely on the traditional outlets, there are many more places to find wheels at good prices than in traditional brick-and-mortar stores. Check several different places before making your decision and you are sure to get a good price on a beautiful set.
