One of our newest Mod Experts, Sean, brought in this W204 Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Coupe this past saturday to get a set of gorgeous wheels fitting the AMG Benz coupe. Andy, who owns this black beauty, wanted a set of wheels for W204 C63 AMG that “fit” the refined character and sporting chops of the AMG coupe.
Checkout the beefy front brakes – astute observers might note the H&R Sport Springs for W204 that have already been fitted to give the car a great looking stance.
Out with the old…
And in with the new. Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires were the natural choice to ensure the new wheels and tires grip as good as they look.
Mod Expert Sean set Andy up with a set of HRE Flow Form Wheels – offering both the style and the prestige of the legendary HRE name, these were an ideal choice for the C63. Opting for a set of HRE FF15 Flow Form wheels in Tarmac finish, these were just the thing to really “set off” the look of the car.
Sean recommended a fitment of 19×8.5 ET47 up front and a 19×9.5 ET45 in the rear, wrapped in 235/35-19 / 255/30-19 Michelin rubber.
After mounting and fitting the tires, we took a moment to scope out the fitment and check out the ride height of the car on the H&R Sport Springs.
From this side, the bright red AMG brake calipers show through the open design of the FF15s for an especially sinister look.
After fitting new wheels and the car having been recently lowered, an alignment was a great idea. Our flush-with-the-floor alignment rack at ModAuto, our install shop, makes it easy to align even the lowest slung cars- and our rate is extremely fair, we charge about what you’d pay anywhere else for a 4-wheel alignment, we simply offer this as a service to our customers since so many people get suspension work here anyways.
We love the front end of these W204 AMGs.
With the car lowered and on a great set of wheels, this is one C63 that stands out from the crowd while simultaneously disappearing into the dark.
With a little help from Mod Expert Sean, Andy’s C63 now looks intimidating enough to make even Darth Vader think twice about messing with it. We hope you enjoyed the photos! Thanks for joining us, see you next time!
