Cracked rim - options

Post by brock200 » Sat 14 May, 2016 9:38 pm

Hey guys new to the forums

Unfortunately i cracked a rim on my 2005 clk200 advantgarde. I currently have these rims on the car ... s-benz.htm

They are REALLY hard to find, and i can imagine even harder to find a single rim. Can anyone give me guidance on whether it would be worth looking for a single replacement for this rim or whether i should just consider getting a new set and cutting my losses. Im not very switched on with the ins and outs about rims so even some guidance on what size rim, tyres, offset i can consider as other options would be good. Id seriously consider going smaller that 19" if i do have to replace the lot just so that the tyre cost is a bit cheaper.

Thanks for any help in advance
