Wait, is this yet another tuning package for the Mercedes SLS AMG ? Well, color us surprised! This vehicle has seen so many tuning projects, we’re beginning to think people have forgotten what a standard model looks like. But have no fear, this latest package only adds a new set of wheels courtesy of Lorinser and a tweak to improve the Mercedes’ handling.
The Mercedes SLS AMG RSK8 by Lorinser is set apart from its standard brethren with a new set of three-part forged wheels with seven spokes and stainless steel bolts. These light-alloy wheels are offered in 9.5 x 20" for the front axle and 11 x 21" at the back, and should be accompanied by 275/30 and 295/25 tires, respectively.
Since weight for a sports car is always an area that can be improved upon, Lorinser has taken extra care of the SLS AMG by making sure that the new rims are one of the lightest available on the market. This reduction in weight improves the unsprung mass and therefore improves the braking response and the handling of the two-seater. And here we thought they just looked good.
