Mercedes Benz has earned its reputation as a redoubtable technology pioneer, legendary for their engineering excellence. So manufacturing aftermarket wheels for Mercedes that are actually an upgrade over original equipment wheels requires an intense commitment to innovation and an obsession with quality. That is what has made Mandrus Wheels a widely heralded industry leader.
While our stunning designs will grab your attention, and the fit and finish of our custom wheels for your Mercedes Benz will impress, it is weight reduction that is among our highest priorities. Vehicle performance is especially sensitive to wheel weight since wheels are the largest contributors to what’s known as unsprung weight, the bane of automotive engineering. Attention to weight is even more important if you plan to increase wheel width and diameter, as most upgraders do.
Our precision engineering starts with a metallurgical marvel, proprietary aluminum alloys that enable us to dial in the optimum combination of strength and weight saving. While all Mandrus custom wheels are made from monoblock alloys, the lightweight champions are manufactured using a highly advanced process called Rotary Forging™. In rotary forging the aluminum billet is spun at high speeds under intense pressure as it is forged. These forces fundamentally alter the molecular structure of the metal, making it both lighter and stronger. Importantly, the greatest weight savings are nearer the perimeter of the wheel, significantly reducing rotational mass and improving vehicle performance in the process.
We make custom wheels only for Mercedes Benz vehicles and we make them to specifications as tight or tighter that Mercedes themselves. As a consequence, the original equipment logo center cap and tire pressure monitoring system precisely re-install in Mandrus wheels. Mandrus wheels are designed with massive lips to ensure unsurpassed tire bead lock. Finally, our wheels are also engineered to be hub-centric, meaning the center hole fits snugly over your Mercedes hub for a smooth, vibration free ride.
