Our 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300TD is going to need some good rubber underneath it. Our friends at Michelin hooked us up… big time. Remember those oh-so-excellent Pilot Sport A/S3 tires I so loved after a few laps at a track outside of New Orleans? Well, we just got a fresh set.
Unfortunately, this means we can’t run the existing 14-inch wheels that it currently wears. That means new wheels. After searching around, we settled on a set from AXIS Wheels. They’re called the OG San, and we love that they look just like the old-school BBS basketweave-style wheels from the 1980s. We may be getting modern wheels, but we appreciate classic cool and these wheels have just that appeal.
