Bad Form?

Is it bad form to put AMG wheels on a non-AMG model?

Not at all. Lots of nice looking tastefully upgraded MBs with AMG wheels are on the road.

The only thing I call bad form is to rebadge a regular MB as an AMG. Most of us call them posers.

Only if you tell people you have an AMG.

There are plenty of new MBs on the lot with AMG wheels, but they are not AMG cars. Go for it if you like them.

Actually putting AMG on our main car is the only modification I did and love it.
Nothing beats the classic monoblocks. nothing.

I had a 380SL with the 14" bundt cake rims. When it came time to replace the tires I bought 4 AMG knockoff monoblock 17" rims, and 245/45r17 radial TA's. Made a huge difference in the ride,and look of the car.
