Mercedes-AMG G550 4×4² Turns The Woods Into Its Own Catwalk

It’s not every day that we come across a Mercedes-AMG G550 4×4², let alone one equipped with aftermarket wheels, hence our desire to share this specific example.

The new rims are part of the HRE’s TR188 series, and they were designed specifically for the hardcore off-roader, with the company claiming that they provide “the utmost strength, impact resistance, and stiffness”.

Available in two sizes: 20- and 22-inch, and in a variety of finishes, including the Satin Bronze and Frozen Clear shades shown here, they have been shod in BFGoodrich tires, and can be had from $2,200 each, without the new rubber.

The wheels obviously won’t make your Mercedes-AMG G550 4×4² any faster, but if extra power is your thing, then you may want to check out Renntech’s upgrades, which allow the 4.0-liter V8 engine to develop 518hp and 578lb-ft (784Nm) of torque.

Brabus, on the other hand, would inject your SUV with even more power: 542hp and 590lb-ft (800Nm) of torque. If you want more, then Brabus is the tuner to go for, as they have even more upgrades in store, or would you rather settle for an unmodified Mercedes-AMG G550 4×4²?

      Why are they replacing this truck again? Mercedes needs to learn from Scion and the failed xB redesign.

    Instead of covering some stupid wheels as a thinly disguised advert, how about seeing this awesome thing fording rivers and tackling the great outdoors??

    There’s a massive difference between thinking about taking your rig off road and the eagerness to do it. This looks like a mall star, not because it isn’t a capable off road machine, but because the owner would in all likelihood be less interested in doing damage to this pretty thing.. Sure it’s fine for running up some incline and moving through some brush, but anything hard core would do damage.. Can’t see this thing doing the Ultimate Adventure.
