Your thoughts pls:should I keep my wheels or get 4 MB replicas?

What do you think?

My current tires are Pirelli P Zero Neros: 255/35/18 rear and 235/45/18 fronts, and not very good in rain.

I can get 4 - 17" AMG Twin replicas with Michelin Exaltos (235/45/17) for $1,800.

Thanks appreciate it..

I would stick with OEM if I were you. Wheels, not to mention tires, are so very important to the overall handling and performance of your car. For what it's worth, my father bought a Porsche 911 with "come from factory" Pirellis and they really sucked on wet streets too. I have never considered buying any due to his negative experience.

I would stick with the OEM wheels too. The original look means alot to me and resale value would be higher too with all original parts intact.
