• What is a staggered fitment?

    A staggered fitment is also referred to as a staggered application. Basically it means that you are running different sized wheels on the back of the Mercedes Benz vehicle than the front. Usually a staggered wheel fitment refers to wider wheels on the rear of the vehicle, for example 19x8 on the front and 19x9.5 on the rear. Running wider Mercedes Benz wheels on the drive wheels means more grip on acceleration and from an aesthetic perspective, it means larger lips.
  • What is an offset and why does it matter what offset I use?

    “The offset is a vital technical aspect of your wheel and your car. To better explain this, Mandrus put together a brief 101 video on offsets. You can also go to our wheel technology page to learn more about offsets.
  • How do larger wheels affect the handling?

    Handling can be improved by running larger wheels. Larger wheels mean you will run a low profile tire, and usually, a wider tire. A low profile tire often performs better when cornering and braking, as tire roll is greatly reduced. A low profile tire will result in a stiffer ride.

    Extremely large wheels, such as 24" and 26" wheels, are heavier and can increase braking distances. However, Mandrus will always endeavor to keep the wheels as light as possible without compromising the strength of the wheel.
  • What is the largest lip available on a Mandrus Wheel?

    Currently the Mandrus Mannheim and Simplex wheel styles in 22X10.5 have the largest lip in the Mandrus range at a staggering 3.5". You can check the lip sizes of Mandrus Wheels on our wheel collection page.

  • What is the warranty on Mandrus Wheels?

    With regular care and regular road conditions, Mandrus offers a one year finish warranty on its wheels with chrome and painted finishes. Mandrus provides a lifetime structural warranty for wheels it manufactures that are structurally unsound because of a manufacturing defect caused by Mandrus that makes the wheel unfit for its ordinary purpose. Damage or issues with wheels manufactured by Mandrus that are not caused by, or the result of, a manufacturing defect by Mandrus are not covered under the warranty. Additionally, the following are expressly excluded from the warranty:
    • Mandrus does not offer a "road hazard warranty," so any damage or issue with a wheel caused by the wheel colliding with a pothole or any other object or debris will not be covered by the warranty;
    • Wheels that have been used in racing are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness; and
    • Wheels mounted on vehicles with a load rating in excess of the load rating of the wheel are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness.
    • Wheels that have been modified, repainted, or powder coated.


    To submit a wheel for determination of coverage, a distributor must first obtain a Returned Goods Authorization number from an authorized Mandrus salesperson. Wheels sent to Mandrus without first obtaining a Returned Goods Authorization number will be refused and returned to sender. After obtaining the Returned Good Authorization number, THE DISTRIBUTOR WHO PURCHASED THE WHEEL FROM Mandrus must send the wheel by freight prepaid, as freight costs, shipping costs and any consequential damages are not covered by the warranty, to Mandrus headquarters in Huntington Beach, California for inspection by Mandrus. The invoice of the original purchase must be included with the wheel so Mandrus can verify the wheel is being submitted for coverage under the warranty by the original purchaser. A customer of a distributor cannot directly send a wheel for inspection to Mandrus as Mandrus does not communicate, correspond or deal in any way with the customers of Mandrus's distributors. A wheel submitted to Mandrus by a customer of the distributor will be returned.

    After receiving a wheel submitted by a distributor for inspection, Mandrus will inspect the wheel and notify the distributor if the wheel is covered by the warranty. If Mandrus determines the wheel is covered by the warranty, Mandrus will issue a credit note to the distributor for the amount the distributor paid Mandrus for the wheel.
  • How do I find out what wheels work on my vehicle?

    To see if Mandrus has a wheel for your vehicle, visit our vehicle fitment guide.

    Mandrus has a staggering range of sizes and fitments. Our wheel sizes include 18 inch through 22 inch wheel sizes. Please go to our inventory lookup page to find wheels for a specific fitment.
  • What is a Rotary Forged® wheel?

    Many Mandrus Wheels for Mercedes Benz including the Arrow wheel and Rotec wheel are manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called Rotary Forging. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance. See our video for more information on the rotary forging process.
  • What is CNC Milling?

    Some wheel designs have been enhanced utilizing a CNC Milling technique. CNC (computer numerical control) milling machines are used to perform complex drilling and contouring operations to enhance the design of these wheels. Take a look at closeup image of these wheels (click on any wheel image) and notice the milling grooves that flank the spokes and central contours of this wheel, giving it a machined artisanal look
