To anyone that can help!<br> <br> I am looking to buy an '02 CLK430 Coupe but I'm having a problem accepting the new style wheel for only one reason. It seems that the machined edge of the wheel has lost it's flat, deep appearance like the '00 and '01 years. It is very shallow and rolls downward into the tire now. I like the mean appearance of a deep dish, flat lipped SL type Sport wheel or monoblock. I do like and want the new thin spoke look though. The CLK55 Cab has that lip I want but I hate the rivet look. Does anyone know of another new AMG wheel (with new 5 thin spokes), maybe from another car, that would work? Does AMG make the same wheel but maybe in wider sizes? Is their an AMG knockoff company that duplicates there wheels? Would love to go to 18' thin spoke with deeper lip.<br> <br> Help.

I dislike the new style wheels... they look like 4 17x7.5's but they are staggered in the back...

Why not go with the Styling I from the '99-'01 CLK430?

There are only a few wheels that are made to fit the CLK, they are<br> <br> 17-inch AMG Monoblock Styling I (same as '99-'01 CLK430)<br> 17-inch AMG Monoblock Styling II (same as '01-'02 CLK55 Coupe)<br> 17-inch AMG Monoblock Styling III (same as '02 CLK430)<br> 17-inch AMG Multipiece Styling III (same as '02 CLK55 Cabrio)<br> 17-inch AMG Monoblock Styling IV (same as '02 C32)<br> <br> 18-inch AMG Monoblock Styling II (same as '99-'02 E55, not really a perfect fit, but will work)<br> <br> 18-inch AMG Multipiece Styling III (new, look just like CLK55 Cabrio wheels only bigger in diameter, width is the same)<br>
