Alloy Refresh: W221 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Rolling On A Set of HRE Performance FlowForm FF04 Wheels!

The Mercedes-Benz W221 S-Class was the pinnacle of luxury and tech at the time of its release and today, though aged, it still looks pretty good. This client paid a visit to one of our partnered dealers with intentions to swap out his aged and worn out tires. However, the moment he stepped into their dealership, he spotted a set of HRE Performance FlowForm FF04 wheels, sitting proudly on display and he instantly fell for em!

Soon after, a simple intended tire change became much more than that! What he saw on display was a set of HRE’s FF04 wheels finished in their signature Liquid Metal finish and he instantly insisted for the exact same wheels on his Mercedes! As such, being HRE’s sole exclusive distributor in the region, we immediately got a call from our dealer with regards to a request for a set of wheels to be sent to his dealership.

When we arrived at the dealership at about 30 minutes later after the order was made, we spotted his S-Class looking as fine and as clean as could ever be and with that, we decided to wait till the installation was complete in order to get a few photos of the W221!

We sent over a set of wheels which are measured at 9J x 19 in the front and 9.5J x 19 in the rear, which are the perfect fitment sizes that would align the wheels into a perfect, parallel, fender flush fitment. The aggressive offsets of the wheels push out the shoulders of the vehicle, making it broader and better looking too!

We also would like to apologize if we’ve gone on and on repeating that these wheels are extremely light because they just are! The S-Class was previously running on its set of stock 19 inch alloys and yet with the FF04 wheels, the new alloys shave off at least 40% of the previous alloy’s weight! This is not just a gimmick as it really amplifies the driving dynamics of the S-Class with less weight holding it back from pushing hard.

As a whole, though old, the FF04 alloys gives the S-Class a huge refresh, making it better looking than ever! The wheel’s finish in Liquid Metal, perfectly contrasts the Metallic Grey paintjob of the S-Class and adds a whole new level of sportiness that was absent from its previous look.
