2018 Mercedes Benz C300 fitted with 20" Blaque Diamond BD-15s in Silver with Machined Face

Some say it’s the little things in life that make it worth living. The details, that is what defines something - the collective “micro” that makes up the “macro”. Since the day of its inception, one car model has proven this axiom to be true. The Mercedes-Benz C class, a once entry level model to the prestigious German marque, has never lacked in its ability to display how much it truly is worthy of being called a Benz. Historically the smallest car in Mercedes’ lineup, this car has never been short on charisma and driver enthusiasm, not to mention premium build quality. This isn’t just a vehicle you buy if you can’t afford its staple mates; quite the contrary. This automobile shows us another facet of what makes a Mercedes a Mercedes.

This black example is no exception. Vibe Motorsports, an aftermarket car shop located in Burbank, CA, has taken this 2018 Mercedes-Benz C300 and dialed it up a couple of notches. Known for their creative workmanship, Vibe is no stranger to giving vehicles a little
“je-ne-sais-quoi” to turn heads. Customizations of the Benz include installing Eibach lowering springs to the dampening system, black tinted windows, a custom Gintani exhaust, and of course new shoes by Blaque Diamond.

New for 2018 is Blaque Diamond’s BD-15 wheel. Vibe Motorsports collaboration with the innovative and avant guard wheel house resulted in the C-class being fitted with 20” staggered rims. To complete the rim-tire combination, Nexen tires were employed to connect car and road. The machined finish of the BD-15s are the only accents that draw your attention away from the silhouette of the Mercedes, but in a good way.

Being classy is a lifestyle, and that’s what this new BD-15 wheel embodies. The star-like shape of the rims is a classic and timeless design. The subtle taper of the spokes add to the bold, yet simple and refined visage. Versatility is a core strength of this wheel set, as it stands out on a date-nite on a luxury vehicle, as well as on a tuner looking for an edgy finish. Whether in 20s or 24s, an imported racer or an S-class, this rim refuses to downplay its posh and sporty character.

Features of the BD-15 Wheels
Features of the BD-15 wheels include a 5 spoke design in standard silver with a machined finish. This wheel is also offered in a standard gloss black finish or can be customized to a customer’s color preference and specifications.  Simple yet elegant. A first in 2018, Blaque Diamond offers this wheel in a 5 lug and 6 lug pattern, as well.

Available Sizes
The BD-15 is available in the following sizes:
20”×9” / 20”×10” / 20”×11” – 22”×9” / 22”×10.5” – 24”×9” / 24”×10”

Vehicles That BD-15 Wheels Fit
The only limit is the sizes offered. Given that this 5 spoke design gives off a clean aesthetic, the BD-15 wheel looks great on muscle cars, exotics, luxury and even economy cars wanting to stand out. It’s like having a good pair of black shoes, you can never go wrong. To illustrate the wide range of applications for this wheel, Blaque Diamond has a gallery with this design being used on large SUVs as well as muscle cars and coupes.
