My wheel swap on the Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16V Evolution II by Inno64

As I have already written on this blog, the Mercedes-Benz Evo II by Inno64 is a masterpiece, but I did miss the street black version at the time. This mistake is now repaired, as I have one in the collection now. And since the beginning, I knew I would wheel swap it with the OZ-style wheels provided by Inno itself.

I did rethink it though, because the car is also very gorgeous with the standard wheels it comes with, with 6 branches, but I was convinced when I put my Error404 model aside. Indeed, this high end resin model also comes with a 6 branches rims, but in a photo-etched style. I just remind that Error404 is twice the price of a Inno car, and they cannot really be compared, but you also can see that Inno’s job is very good for a price under $20. That being said, the Error404 model seems to really have a too high rear. Like it though.

This is a nice silhouette for sure
The attention given to the interior is great

So, back on my wheel swap. As always, it’s a hard task, because I couldn’t manage to unscrew the front screw (don’t know why), so I put back the existent wheels by hand very carefully because of the details of the car. After half an hour of efforts, I managed to have my wheel swap done. Damn, it’s not a very pleasant moment, but the result is totally worth it, in my opinion.

Look at this beauty! I don’t regret it at all. If space was not a matter, I would probably try to have another one to have the variation, but I’m fine right know. That makes me 4 models of the Mercedes-Benz Evolution II, and I hope we will see many more versions of it in the future.

You can find the Inno64 Mercedes-Benz Evolution II on eBay quite easily.

And you, did you wheel swap your Mercedes ?

  1. I really like the model. It would have a place in my performance car collection. I love OZ wheels but I prefer the 6 spoke on this car. Save the OZs fr a different car.

    Unfortunately this is no longer a $20 car. So I will likely pass hoping they do it again.

  2. In case you weren’t aware, your model with the tartan interior is the chase version. Most have a straight black interior. I have had a good few of these through my possession and only one of them had the tartan interior.

    I think this Inno Merc is the best 1:64 car around at the mo!
