I know it it just the height of the tire, will this effect my speedometer? 2nd is there any chronic issues that the 2010 GL350 bluetec has or that I should look out for? Thanks a ton
Welcome to the forum.
Scroll down the forum index (grouped according to chassis) into
Mercedes Benz Vans/Trucks/SUV/ Other, to X166 GL/GLS class.
I think the correct forum (?) for your car.

I already copied your thread there.
The speedometer will be affected by the taller tires. Google some of the online tire calculators, and they will show the percentage, and whether its still safe.
To go from 50 to 60's seems a bit much imo.
From 19inch 275 50 R19 to 275 60 R20? From R19 to R20 on the same rim is a NoNo, or is that a typo?
