Was hoping to buy just one to match lol. yeah right. I don't want to go back with low profile on the back seeing that what ever I ran over didn't hurt the front. Can I just buy a set of 4 15" rims and be done? I live in a small town in east Texas and it is used to run around town.

Anita, You title says you own a 08 Brabus. smart didn’t offer, that model, till 2009. What does your wheels look like?

lf you buy 4 new 15” wheels at the tire rack. It’s going to cost you $452.88. Then add on all new 15” tires all around. Mount and balancing too.

How badly bent is your wheel. Can it be repaired? Getting it fix, would be a lot cheaper.

Good Luck with your choice.

Anita, welcome to SCoA.

The OEM staggered wheel/tire combination on the MY09 “limited edition” Brabus OEM can be challenging. Replacement wheels (especially rear) are hard to find with very few P215/35R17 tire choices available.

If this is your “round town” runabout you may want to look for a complete 15” wheel/tire replacement solution to include TPMS?

Note that the 3 remaining Brabus wheels may be of value to help defray your expense?

If you can put up pics of your brabus rims, maybe someone here might have more ideas to contribute.

It’s a shame to own a Brabus, and put boring stock 15” wheels on it. It would be cheaper to just replace that one wheel. Be very careful of pot holes.
