What has anyone heard or experienced with this... Wheels are TSW Sakata 5's 20x8.5 5-112
Thanks for any feedback.
Hi, Jay, and welcome to the forum.
Most folks around here consider MBZ to know what they're doing when they build their cars, including the parts for them. Very few aftermarket wheels are the equal of MB, and those that are seem to be just as expensive (if not more so, HRE, cough, cough) as MB's OEM wheels.
That said, so long as your seller backs them for balancing, leakage, etc., you shouldn't let the purists dissuade you from what you want to do on your own car.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
