re-posting question: Monoblock vs stock BBS AMG wheels
Posted this question in the W220 forum. What would be better choice? Existing OEM AMG wheels need to be changed. After searching I narrowed down to monoblock custom wheels offered by signaturewheel.com and buying almost new BBS made factory OEM AMG 2-piece forged wheels. Monoblocks are costing about 1000 bucks more.
Which would be a better buy for W220 AMG. The car originally came with 19 inch staggered factory AMG wheels. Bought the car used. In the past year of driving the wheels developed cracks on the inside edge. I drive the car a lot and am looking for something that would be structurally reliable for daily driver. The wheel repair guy tells me that he gets a lot of AMG cars with cracks in their wheels for repairs.
