Here’s an old-gen three-door Mercedes-Benz G-Class fitted with 22-inch Vossen wheels doing some serious amount of off-roading.

Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon is among the popularly known premium SUV offerings around the world. It is also quite well known among the people who love to explore places beyond the man-made roads. The previous-gen Mercedes-Benz G-Class was offered in a wide array of models. Earlier, the SUV was also offered in a three-door body style, which is not likely to make a comeback because the trend of three-door SUVs has been falling out of favour. However, here’s a new video uploaded on a YouTube Channel named as VossenWheels, which shows and old-gen three-door G-Wagon wearing custom wheels and doing some serious amount of off-roading. In the video, the SUV can be seen riding on the HF-3 Wheel set from Vossen’s Hybrid Forged Series. Wearing these wheels the three-door off-roader doesn’t mind getting a bit dirty while going through muddy patches.

A customer can get an option to pick from a multitude of finish, including a glitzy gloss gold look. The Vossen alloy wheels fitted on this three-door G-Wagon employ a subtle, silver-coloured finish and measure 22-inch in diameter. A customer can also opt for wheels as small as 19-inch and as big as 24-inch.
