Mandrus Wheels Names Its Monoblock Alloy Mannheim Model "Most Popular" Aftermarket Mercedes Wheel

Classic five-spoke design becomes a 2013 "best seller" for the maker of Mercedes-Benz wheels exclusively

Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Mandrus Wheels was created to serve Mercedes-Benz owners exclusively, and each of the seven models it has created has achieved wide acceptance in the aftermarket Mercedes wheels marketplace. The 2013 "most popular" wheel, according to the manufacturer and its dealers, has proven to be the classic Mannheim model. The Mannheim is an aluminum alloy monoblock design with a distinctive inlay in each spoke. It is available in traditional Chrome or in Gunmetal with a mirror-cut face and lip.

"There are many reasons owners seek out custom Mercedes wheels ," observed Terence Scheckter, president of Mandrus Wheels. "Increasingly, though, we find customers are drawn to Mandrus Wheels when they are seeking a staggered fitment, a concept we vigorously support," Scheckter said. He explained that a staggered fitment means that the rear wheels and tires are slightly wider than the front wheels and tires, delivering improved lateral and off-the-line acceleration as well as a more aggressive posture. "It’s a lot more work for the manufacturer," he added, "because we are essentially having to create both front axle wheels and rear axle wheels in each diameter. But it’s well worth the effort."

The Mannheim line of Mandrus Mercedes wheels supports five diameters—17", 18", 19", 20" and 22" —enabling owners to upsize wheel diameter from he manufacturer’s stock size. A larger wheel means drivers can spec a lower profile, wider tire.

Mandrus Wheels was founded by a former F1 race car driver, and is focused exclusively on creating wheels for Mercedes cars and SUVs. That means each of the seven Mandrus Mercedes-Benz wheels is designed and engineered to provide a precise fit and 100% compatibility with each model within the Mercedes lineup. Mandrus Mercedes rims match the factory-requisite 5x112 bolt pattern and are available in a full range of offsets to match the factory spec. They are engineered to fit precisely centered over the hub for a velvety, vibration-free ride. The wheels fully support the Mercedes tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and accept the original equipment center logo cap and lug nuts.
