The latest generation of the Mercedes GLE, which has been available since 2018, practically begs for extrovert alloy wheels. The wheel bolts, which are thicker than usual for Mercedes, prevented any such endeavor, though, at least where aftermarket products are concerned. "As one of the most well-known tuners for the Mercedes brand, however, we took on this challenge," explains Managing Director Marcus Lorinser. Just in time for tire changing season in the autumn, the company from Germany will therefore be one of the first suppliers to offer attractive rims for the Mercedes GLE of the current generation.

Internally, it did not take long to select the cast variant of the spectacular Lorinser RS10 for this. After the tuner's design engineers had calculated all parameters, it became evident that the development of a variant with a larger bore would be the most practical. The TÜV inspection association was immediately convinced as well and issued a corresponding certificate.

Despite its 21-inch size, the one-piece Lorinser RS10 aluminum wheel appears extremely light yet powerful. This is achieved with the five dynamically styled double spokes which bisect halfway to the narrow rim flange. The designers also placed great focus on the star-shaped hub area which has a seamless transition to the spokes. The Himalaya Gray finish is the perfect match for the cold season – after all, the world's highest peaks are permanently covered in ice and snow.
