    I'm good friends with the Auty brothers who own South West Tyres in Clevedon, they are the UK's premier supplier of HREs. Jenson Button balled into Matty's office and bought some 20" HREs for his CLK-DTM:

    @ a nice cost of £8k before rubber!

    So yes they are pricey :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    LOVE the CLK DTM AMG. aside from the Black Edition it's the only CLK i'd buy (if i had the money ofc lol)

    what's the point in spending that much? the VMR 710s look exactly the same for 1/8 of the price

    silly thing is, as much as i would appreciate them, ultimately they're there to make the car look good. no matter whether i was using aftermarket wheels or not i'd want OEM centre caps personally, and NOBODY is gonna know if they cost £8k or not... except when you kerb them and are swearing your head off... then EVERYONE will know. so what's the point?
