Liquid Elegance: Mercedes Benz S-Class Running On Liquid Metal FlowForm FF04 Alloys By HRE Performance Wheels!
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan is definitely the pinnacle of luxury. Built to be extremely extravagant, luxurious and exclusive, this saloon has always remained as the benchmark luxury saloon! An owner of a W222 S-Class was introduced to our showroom by a previous client of ours and was looking into replacing his stock wheels with a set of ours!

Its widely known by our previous clients and other owners out there that the stock Mercedes-Benz S-Class wheels, though aggressive in its design, remains extremely low in quality. The stock alloys are extremely brittle and exhibit the tendency to crack or dent at the slightest hint of a bump. Its a very common issue amongst Malaysian S-Class owners, an issue so severe that even Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has conceded defeat and equipped all new 2018 S-Class models with 19″ wheels but that is far from the right decision, especially when you’re buying a high dollar vehicle like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
As such, with those brittle stock alloys on our newfound friend and client’s S-Class, he came to us, looking for a set of 19 inch alloys that would remove his concerns on his stock alloys cracking up all the time. However, we strongly disagreed with his decision. While the S-Class’ alloys are weak and brittle, our 20 inch options are built to be as strong and as light as possible. In nearly all of our S-Class makeovers, we’ve assisted our client in curing their concerns with a set of 20 inch alloys and while anything can happen, as of now with dozens and dozens of our alloys sold, we have never received any complaints.
As such, our client trusted with our reputation and experience of over 20 years in the industry and with his concerns assured, we narrowed down his options to a selection of three wheel design options, Vorsteiner’s V-FF 102 & V-FF 110 along with HRE Performance Wheels’ FlowForm FF04 alloys. We suggested a fitment of these alloys as it will bring more elegance and sportiness that an S-Class should exude without taking it too over the top as all three offer lighter coloured wheel finishes that would contrast with the Benz’s paintjob perfectly!
After reviewing our suggested options and having test fitted them, our client left home, needing some time to decide before returning yet again, still undecided. After test fitting the alloys on his car yet again, our client decided to have a set of HRE’s FF04 alloys! While no one could never go wrong with any of the three options, our client felt that the perfect alloy for the S-Class was the HRE FF04 wheel, as the Liquid Metal finish of the wheel not only contrasts with the Obsidian Black paintjob of the S-Class but also fits in perfectly with the elegant and luxurious nature of the vehicle!
Once decided, we assured our client yet again by notifying him that these alloys are one of the strongest and lightest wheels out there! With his stock alloys weighing in at 17 kilograms each, the FF04 wheel only weighed in at 11 kilograms each! A staggering 35% weight reduction over the stock alloys!
In short, no one should ever downsize their wheels just so they could avoid pothole damage. With a better, stronger and lighter wheel installed on our clients car, his alloys are not impervious to cracks or dents. HRE’s FlowForm FF04 wheels utilizes a Flow Forming method of construction as compared to the old school method of casting wheels out which enables their alloys to be extra strong and lighter than ever! We’ve done and completed numerous wheel swaps for clients of which have complained about cracks or dents and none of em have ever returned with any complaints.
