Opinions on Vorsteiner Wheels

A friend just picked up a Track Edition E63 AMG with Vorsteiner wheels on it.

What are peoples' opinions on Vorsteiner wheels? I know they are best known for their body kits, etc, but how are their wheels? Did they partner up with a reputable wheel company or did they get their own engineers to make them? Does anybody know anything about the build quality?

Not true. They did use Nutek in the past but now oversee everything directly.

OP: Its simply best to call Vorsteriner and speak with them directly.

I agree, here's a couple of quick pics of Vorsteiner wheels we've had through the shop:

VS-320 (3-piece)


VS-110 (1-piece)


The 110 series is very popular. We just received another set of 22" VS-110s arrive last week, going on an X6M.

I just picked up a set of VS-340's. They look amazing and I think the quality is great, but only time will tell.

Few more shots for you. Several happy customers including myself as I have the VS-320 on my personal car. Best testament I have to quality is after I curbed one (yea I hate admitting that) the friend I had repair them told me he has worked with a lot of wheels and was amazed at the quality and attention to detail that my Vorsteiner's had. Can't go wrong in my opinion.

And I stand corrected

Thank you
