Here’s a really cool look behind the scenes at Vossen wheels. How are custom wheels designed and tested for an all-new model like the AMG GT?
This photo essay takes us on a step-by-step trip through the process of upgrading the factory rims. How shockingly tiny do the factory wheels in comparison with the end results?!
The engineering and laser measurements of the inner wheel wells and axle hubs are the most critical bits of knowledge for Vossen’s CAD-CAM designers. Once these parameters are set, the firm can custom-cut any design or style of wheels to fit any AMG GT flawlessly.
Pretty cool. As ever, the “after” results of this makeover show that all that effort was worthwhile….
A final customization option? The finish of the wheels. The raw alloy powdercoat in the original photos is cool, but we’ve rendered 10 other finishes to show what’s possible. The dark anthracite gloss is stunning on the vehicle.

VOSSEN VPS-306 Mercedes-AMG GT-S Build
The Vossen Mercedes AMG GT S Build Week
Well we are super excited to share these pics, as we just took delivery of the new Vossen Mercedes AMG GT S Build on Monday, and by Thursday night we had the vehicle lowered on Vossen Forged VPS-306 wheels! Personally, I am a huge fan of this vehicle having driven it at the AMG GT S event at Thermal last December (click here for my review of the AMG GT S) and really feeling this is one of the most involving and soulful cars on the road today. We took delivery from our good friend Ariel at Mercedes of Coral Gables and immediately began measurements to custom build its Vossen Forged: Precision Series VPS-306 wheels!
