Tire rack for the above photo. OEM 3 spoke from the smart dealership. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

Just went to the Tire Rack link. They don't sell them anymore. Sorry!

Try smart madness.

I haven't asked a dealer how much these are, but I like them too:

A 451 401 49 02 7X45 (front)
A 451 401 50 02 7X45 (rear)

They are actually accessories you can configure on the smart website, but the dealer couldn't order them for me with the car...

They should fit. You can get them with one of the option packages...

smart Center couldn't order as a build option - find another dealer!

smart 3-Spoke alloy wheels

As OEM build - a $550 option
front: 175/55 R15
rear: 195/50 R15

As a smart Center takeoff resale - at least twice that as they should be a hot item!

The 2013 smartusa Accessories Brochure does not show the above wheel.

http://www.smartusa.com/Downloads/smart-car-accessories-brochure.pdf

Only shown in the EURO/uk brochure so may not be available on this side of the pond as an accessory?

Thanks for the research!!!

I sat with the salesman as he put my order in.

(As of I believe July/Aug of last year when I put the order in:)

I wanted everything in the Style Package but I thought I could get daytime running lights with fog lights, so I opted to get the fog lights and "hoped" as the online manual noted, there were daytime running lights elsewhere. He showed me the list of all the options there to make sure he got everything. There was no option for the 3-Spoke Wheels. It only came with the Style Package. All I really wanted was the 175/55 R15 (wider) tires up front, so I took a shot at the 3-Double-Spoke Wheel option, since the other available 6-Spoke Wheels are shown on the smartusa.com configurator to have 165/60 R 15 tires.

There is one car at a dealer near me that has the 3 spoke wheels, (if it is still there.) Looked pretty good. The ones Brabus007 points out look really nice too. Too bad you'd have to order out of country/Canada, since as smark mentioned they are no longer on the Tire Rack site.

smartonlineparts.com has great pricing, but for some reason they couldn't sell me anything that was not on their site. (Maybe you'll have better luck.)

I ordered from them a while ago. Maybe they are able to sell things that are not specifically on their website to customers now. I would definitely give them a shot/contact them BEFORE anyone else. Shop around and you'll find out how much they can save you. I tried comparison shopping and found only one item out of many cheaper somewhere else, including shipping. It doesn't hurt to ask for a quote...

Note: The US spec three spokes aren't the same as the European three spokes. European three spokes resemble that of the wheels in first post. US spec ones look completely different.

1010Tires still has the Sport Edition SM3s. The wheels plus four Kumho Ecstas and shipping comes to about $600...

Well, I can't completely answer this one. What I do know from my limited experience in the past with Mercedes parts is that the last four digits/letters is a color code, note the "7X45" extension, if I may call it an extension, at the end of the longer than usual part number. If you remove this then a list of all possible colors "should" come up in EPC. (Sorry, I only had about 1 and 1/2 days to mess with smarttekinfo, and I didn't try removing this and searching.)

So how did I get that part number. I found the VIN of the car I mentioned and while I had a smarttekinfo subscription, since I liked the wheels and knew the Sport Editions were being fazed out, put the VIN in and pulled the wheels' for that specific vehicle's part numbers.

I don't know what other color options/codes are available, but I'm assuming that is why you've noticed a difference.

I'm not talking about colors, but rather the wheels entirely! :) The EU three spoke wheels are different than ours.

These are the US spec three spoke wheels (these are unavailable in Europe).



These are the EU spec three spoke wheels. The Sport Edition SM3s look like these wheels. (these are not available in America) You can't even order these rims here.

While the 3-double-spoke alloy wheels are NOT available in the U.S. it does appear that the (above) 3-spoke alloys ARE available on both sides of the pond?

The Sport Edition SM3s have been discontinued for a year now. Tire Rack has been selling off their remaining stock and they just ran out last week.

I was going to buy some this week...a week too late I guess! :)

That's depressing. Euro smarts get all the cool toys!
