Built for Function | Mercedes-Benz G Wagen with CEC Forged Wheels

The Mercedes Benz G500 is a special vehicle. Each G Wagen is hand built by a team of Mercedes-Benz technicians and the same model has been in production since 1991 with no noticeable exterior styling changes. The car has retained its rugged functional exterior and its excellent off-road capabilities that have defined it for decades.

This particular G500 was brought to us for a new set of wheels and tires that would better suit the rugged hand built exterior and highlight the off road capabilities. We decided to knock out two birds with one stone by installing a set of 20" CEC c881 forged wheels in Matte black finish wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain tires. To finish the fully capable look, the customer opted to get a complete fifth wheels and tire to mount on the back of the G500 and paint the chrome accents of the car in matte black to match the wheels.

The G Wagen is now properly ready for an off road run through the Mojave Desert while still turning heads on the streets of LA. If you are interested in a similar look for your SUV, contact your CEC representative or stop by the CEC LA showroom.
