    What wheels for S5? Vossen? ADV.1?

    Nothing as of yet, but I've done some reading into the engine, and the most common mods are an ECU tune and a pulley upgrade, so something to that effect would be in on the list in the future. Currently, I'm still trying to decide on what rims I want to put on the car. So at the moment, it's a toss up between the following:
    http://www.vossenwheels.com/wheels/VVSCV2.aspx
    And:
    http://www.adv1wheels.com/adv1wheels...on/ADV08_1.php
    And:

    That's a good question, depends on your budget. I was hoping to refer you to someone at Vossen and they about to sponsor but haven't said anything since.

    Maybe create a thread in tires/wheels and I will advise you from there.

    Before I drove the S5, I was originally looking at the C350 Coupe, and so contacted Vossen, and they sent me a quotation on their VVCS2. I'm just undecided whether those rims look as good on the S5 as they did on the Merc.

    Moved posts to their own thread in wheels/tires.

    Thanks, right now I'd just like people's opinions and experiences. Sticky's information on the ADV.1's is rather disturbing, most roads in South Africa are in fairly poor condition and I could see some horrible things happening on a set similar to those in the post!

    Skip these new names and go for big companies who have been in this business for quite long time.

    My bad. The car is going to be white, so I'm thinking charcoal with satin finish.

    I would go HRE or ADV.1 over Vossen, IMO.

    Depending on style, the weight difference and strength of the wheel. I don't have any problems with Vossen in the slightest, but for my personal ride I would choose ADV.1 or HRE.
