Unfortunately, the Mercedes-Benz GLE being a rather new vehicle on the market, Vorsteiner did not have any Flow Forged wheel in this car’s required fitment dimensions. However, our client spotted a fully forged Vorsteiner V-FN 514 wheel on our showroom floor and inquired about it!GLE 400 VFN 514

Given that there was no readily available wheel design for the Mercedes-Benz GLE-class, our client decided to pull the trigger on a set of Vorsteiner’s Forged wheel designs. This would enable our client to completely customize the look and feel of his new set of wheels. From its wheel finish to its offsets, anything is possible when you work with forged wheel designs!GLE 400 VFN 514-3

Vorsteiner’s forged aluminum bespoke wheels are made using the latest T-6061 aerospace grade aluminum blocks and individually machined to your exacting standards. These wheels are lightweight and load rated for your specific vehicle to maximize weight efficiency and performance. We also offer a virtually unlimited selection of custom finishes only limited by your imagination.GLE 400 VFN 514-11

As such, when he confirmed his order for the set of Vorsteiner’s Forged VFN 514 wheels, we communicated with Vorsteiner North America to have the production and manufacture of our client’s wheels commence. With the manufacturing process taking about 6-8 weeks, we took delivery of the set of wheels which were sized out at 9.5J x 21-inches and finished in Matte Black as per our client’s request!GLE 400 VFN 514-5

The wheels were about 30% lighter as compared to Vorsteiner’s Flow Forged line of wheels which is already superlight on its own and that does wonders for a car of this size! The fitment of the wheels was perfectly flush, hyping up the look of the car like no other wheel could and extending the wheel track of the SUV, and that works to enhance the SUV’s dynamics!
