How to Get You Mercedes-Benz Ready for Summer

Big wheels are in, according to the Mercedes-Benz designers

It’s time to say goodbye to normal street shoes and start wearing trendy sneakers again – footwear fashion for spring has a chic and sporty air to it. And the same is true of cars when the time comes to switch back to summer tyres: attractive light-alloy wheels from Mercedes-Benz Accessories enhance the appearance of any vehicle while lending an added touch of sportiness and elegance. The trend for the summer 2015: big wheels with fine details.

From fleeting fashion to lasting trend: even compact-class models such as the Mercedes-Benz A-Class are now riding on 18-inch wheels, while the range of sizes extends to as large as 21 inches on SUV vehicles like the new Mercedes GLE.

Big wheels are in, according to the Mercedes-Benz designers, but they are shown off to particularly striking effect by fine details such as rim flanges painted in a different colour. Two-tone finishes continue to be popular, as do high-sheen light-alloy wheels, whose special appeal stems from the contrast between the seemingly bare metal and the painted surfaces.
