Parallel Spoke Wheels

Having no direct comparison, the new AMG wheel looks like the rim of the Porsche 997 Turbo. There are differences in detail but, a similarity cannot be denied! On the other hand, the German BMW refiners of Alpina brought out a wheel with a bunch of parallel spokes before the Swabian car makers did.

Since Alpina rims do always feature 20 spokes, it has a 5x4-spokes layout while Mercedes' and Porsche's wheels posses 5x3 spokes. But, even before them, there were aftermarket wheels of this look! This is to say that no car maker have copied the design by any competitor!

... back to the feature on the revised CLS!
